Valid through August 31, the Summer Pass includes unlimited Tram admissions for the pass-holder, 10% discount on additional Tram admissions, 10% discount at Peaks Restaurant or Pines Café, and unlimited free parking. Cost of the Summer Pass is $75 for adults and seniors (62+), and $40 for children ages 3-12, and may be purchased at the Tram’s Valley Station or online at www.coolsummerpass.com.
Summer Pass holders also enjoy over 50 miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and multiple campgrounds all within the 14,000-acre pristine forest of the Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness Area.
The Tram’s Mountain Station offers spectacular view points, two restaurants, cocktail lounge, gift shop, natural history museum and two documentary-style movies about the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and the Mount San Jacinto State Park.
