What about Jackson Hole? And you can ski down in the winter.

I know personally the Palm Springs Arial Tram, Sugar Loaf Tram (Rio de Janeiro) and Heavenly Valley Tram - that SOARS over the lake voted the most beautiful in the United States a few months back (it's one of the most spectacular places in the world) should be on this list!  I do agree, this list is lacking.

Living in Spokane, I have tried the SkyRide here. The views are nice but it's constant stop and go procedure that irritates me. Seriously, it gets a little frustrating when you have to be held up in a hot gondola lift for 30 minutes. Ugh.

I'm actually surprised to see it here given that no one knows what Spokane is lol.

Mt Schilthorn, Switzerland. 9744 feet altitude. 360 degree  rotating restaurant, Piz Gloria, at the top. Stunning views of the Swiss Alps chain. That's my call.
