Download Contest Rules
California may be in the midst of an historic drought, but there’s never been a year when someone didn’t win the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway’s Snow Guessing Contest. This annual event begins October 1 and will continue until the first measurable inch of snow falls at the Tram’s Mountain Station, elevation 8,516.
The first ten entries received with the correct date of snowfall will win four Tram admissions plus a special Tram picture frame. In the event there are more than ten correct entries, the earliest postmarks will prevail.
To submit an entry, simply write down your best-guess date on a postcard and mail it to: Snow Guessing Contest, 1 Tram Way, Palm Springs, CA 92262. Please remember that only postcards will be accepted (no emailed entries) and no postmarks before October 1. Participants may enter as many times as they would like, but only one date per postcard. For more information, please log on to pstramway.com
Summer may still linger, but it won’t be long before snowflakes are falling just a few minutes from the desert floor, with kids building snowmen, hikers trading boots for cross-country skis, and residents and visitors alike enjoying an Alpine winter wonderland.
