The idea for a tram that would transport people from the heat of the desert up to the cool air of the snow-covered San Jacinto peak was conceived in 1935, but it took many years for the project to finally take shape and become a reality. The first ride up the canyon was taken on September 12, 1963. Now, this unique attraction has become a truly unforgettable adventure in Southern California.
