Discounted Aerial Tram Rides
Aerial Tram tickets will be just $29/person for adults (13+) and $19 for children (5-12) who want to take the exciting 9-minute ride up to Squaw Valley’s High Camp, located at 8,200′ above sea level. Plus, if you are a 2021/22 Ikon Pass holder, you get FREE Aerial Tram access all summer, including on Memorial Day.
The Aerial Tram will operate from 11am-5pm daily between Friday, May 28th and Monday, May 31st. The last ride up the tram will be at 4:30pm, and the last ride down from High Camp will be at 5pm.
If you are planning on hiking to High Camp via the Shirley Canyon trail, you are eligible to take the tram back down to the base area for free. There is still some snow in areas on the trail, so be sure to prepare for variable conditions on your hike.
Please note that Aerial Tram operations are subject to change based on weather and conditions.
