City News Service

PALM SPRINGS (CNS) – The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Tuesday announced it will operate on a modified schedule and offer modified menus for Thanksgiving.

During the holiday weekend, from Nov. 23 to Nov. 26, the first tram up will be at 8 a.m. and the last tram down will be at 9:30 p.m., according to Tramway public relations manager Madison Morgan. Tram cars depart at least every 30 minutes.

Adults and seniors will also be able to purchase $41 combination tickets to include their admission and dinner at Pines Cafe on Thanksgiving Day, Morgan said. The tickets will be available for purchase from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 23.

“The holiday menu includes a choice of oven-roasted turkey, beef burgundy or vegetarian lasagna; a selection of side dishes; and a choice of pumpkin pie or carrot cake for dessert,” Morgan wrote in a statement. “A fountain beverage, coffee or tea are included.”

Additionally, a special Thanksgiving menu — which will include a butternut squash soup or mixed greens salad, oven-roasted turkey breast served with seasonal side dishes and an apple tart topped with ice cream — will be served by Peaks Restaurant, according to Morgan. The dining experience will cost adults and seniors $49, not including the tram fare, and will begin at 11 a.m.

Since 1963, the tramway has carried visitors 2 1/2 miles from Palm Springs to the San Jacinto Mountains, a trip that takes about 10 minutes. At an elevation of more than 8,500 feet, Mountain Station is an entry point to more than 50 miles of hiking trails.
