One of the top 5 things to do in Sandia Peak (New Mexico) is having a ride on the tramway, well above the ground. Hopefully you’re not scared of heights. Next you can learn about other fun activities.

Mountain biking
For this summer activity everyone is required to wear a helmet, but you can rent one if you didn’t bring your own. You’ll want to bike along the trails for the amazing views, fresh air, and the possibility of spotting some wildlife in its natural habitat.

Have a picnic
The best way to have a picnic out on the mountain is by coming here as a group. To make things easier, you can choose a picnic menu that comes with a lower rate for the chairlift ride. The group can have over 20 people.

Learn how to ski
If you come here in winter and you’d like to enjoy the slopes more, taking some ski lessons will prove useful and fun. The skiing school is certified for sports education, therefore you will be taught by well trained professionals. Don’t worry about forgotten gear: there is a store up on the mountain where you can buy everything you forgot.

Make sure to eat something
Spending a lot of time on the mountain will make anyone very tired and hungry. However you don’t have to bring food with you on the mountain if you don’t feel like. All you have to do is find Sandiago's Mexican Grill on top of the mountain and eat something there.

Visit the Tinkertown Museum
This museum is special because it started as a personal collection. People slowly began being interested in the items, and this is how the museum was born. There are many things to see here, but keep in mind that the building itself is part of the museum. Additionally you can purchase stuff you see and like.
