Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Annual Maintenance Closure in Palm Springs
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Annual Maintenance Closure
September 6 Last Day to Ride Until October 4
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will close for annual maintenance beginning Tuesday, September 7, 2021 with a tentative reopening date of Monday, October 4 at 10:00 a.m.
“During this year’s shutdown, one of our track ropes will be repositioned, which is done in 12-year intervals to facilitate even wear,” says Vice President of Tramway Systems Chris Bartsch. “We will also be changing pendant ropes, and the liners and bushings on the pendant rope sheaves. Finally, we will be conducting our annual comprehensive mechanical and electrical testing on numerous Tramway systems.”
Adds Tramway General Manager Nancy Nichols, “We regret the inconvenience our annual maintenance shutdown causes our guests, but since we run seven-days-a-week year-round, this time allows us to complete projects we cannot do when we are open to the public.”
