WIC 2017 Activities
Golf – Tuesday, April 25 @ 1 p.m. – $135/person
Meet 6,400 yards of golf pleasure when you take to the three distinct courses at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa. 27 holes of championship golf on three distinct rotations – North, South and West – wind through palm tree-lined fairways and gently rolling terrain, surrounded by amazing views of the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountains. Six lakes and the infamous Ted Robinson bunkers raise the stakes for amateurs and professionals alike.
Join your peers for a casual shot gun tournament. The $135 fee includes tournament coordination, a boxed lunch, beverage cart and prizes. Rental clubs may be reserved in advance for $40/person. Contact the pro shop at +1 (760) 568-2727 to coordinate.

Palm Springs Aerial Tram Tour – Tuesday, April 25th @ 1:00pm – $75/person
The Palm Springs Aerial Tram on Mt. Jacinto is a true adventure. It was the dream of a young electrical engineer named Francis F. Crocker to “go up there where it’s nice and cool”. Construction of the Tramway was an engineering challenge and was soon labeled the “eighth wonder of the world.” The superlative was earned because of the ingenious use of helicopters in erecting four of the five supporting towers over a two year period in the early 1960s. Some 20 years later, the Tramway was designated an historical civil engineering landmark. Along with the cable span, the tri-level Mountain Station, with its stunning views of the valley, stands as a fine example of the design work of E. Stewart Williams, who was instrumental in the modernist movement and development of Palm Springs as a truly special destination.
The rotating cable cars are the most advanced in the world (the only two in North America) and they guide passengers 2 1/2 miles up the mountainside to a height of 8,516 feet using a push/pull method. Each ride up the hill to the Mountain Station will be met with a cable car on the opposite side of the cable returning to the Valley Station.
Once at the top of the Aerial Tramway, the Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness offers 54 miles of hiking trails. Trails range from the awe-inspiring five and one-half mile trek to the 10,804 foot peak of San Jacinto to the just over one mile nature walk through picturesque Long Valley, located just behind the Tram’s Mountain Station. For the less active guests, a continuous reel movie about the building of the tram, gift shop, 2 restaurants and a lounge to enjoy lunch/dinner/refreshments and several viewing terraces located at the Mountain Station. This trek to the top of our famous mountain is truly a singular experience!
