What are the operating hours of the Aerial Tram? 

The Aerial Tram is closed until the beginning of the 2019-20 season. We do not offer weather-related refunds. Please call 800-403-0206 for operation status.

Can I get a refund if the Aerial Tram closes due to inclement weather? 

We do not offer weather-related refunds. In the summer, we often have late afternoon thunderstorms or lightning activity in the area which can lead to the cancellation of Aerial Tram and High Camp operations. If you have concerns regarding weather, please speak with one of our Mountain Hosts or call 1-800-403-0206. 

Can I bring my dog on the Aerial Tram? 

Dogs are only permitted on the Aerial Tram in the summer. 

In the summer, can I hike back down to the village if I take the Aerial Tram up? 

We strongly discourage hiking down Shirley Canyon from High Camp due to the steep incline of the trail. If you want to hike down, we recommend the Thunder Mountain Trail. Additionally, if you'd like to hike up Shirley Canyon, you can take the Aerial Tram back down to the village. Here is a full hiking guide for the Squaw Valley area

Is there food at High Camp? 

Yes. You can choose from Granite Bistro Cafe, a sit-down establishment with mountain views, or the grab-n-go High Camp Marketplace in the summer. The Marketplace also has coffee, pool accessories, and merchandise.
