Frequently Asked Questions:
Is my Tram ticket included in the cost of my dinner?
The Tram Ticket is not included in the cost of your dinner. Be sure to purchase your tram ticket online at www.sandiapeak.com before arriving. Tickets are limited.
Can you drive up to Ten 3?
The Tram is the most scenic way up! If you would you rather hike to TEN 3 and enjoy a refreshment after hiking… you can drive up using NM Highway 536, park at the Forest Service parking area near Ellis Trailhead & enjoy a 1 . 5 mile hike to TEN 3.
Are there two restaurants in Ten 3?
There is only one restaurant but we offer two indoor dining experiences. TEN 3 has a Fine Dining option that is by reservations only, 5:00 pm till 7:30 pm. Then we have our lounge/ bar area available at first come, first serve, 11 am till 7:00 pm. We are also excited to announce that native New Mexican and award winning chef, J Martin Torrez has joined our team as Executive Chef and we cant wait for you to try his specials. Seating will be limited to The State mandated 25% capacity indoors and 75% capacity for our Cliff Side To Go. Face coverings will be required while in the TEN 3 common areas.
IS there a dress code for fine dining?
- We have a Smart casual dress code in our dining room that we follow, smart casual is:
- Well fitting, neat and appropriate pieces that are slightly less formal than a business casual, hiking attire is not accepted in the Dining Room
- Ladies: No baseball caps, No torn or ripped jeans, No flip flops (open toed ok)
- Gentlemen: No baseball caps, No Cutoff Sleeves, Torn or ripped jeans, No flip flops
- If in doubt it is better to be overdressed than underdressed. We encourage everyone to dress as fancy as you’d like!
