Yes it does unless it's a bad storm or heavy snow storm.  But light to moderate rain won't stop it.

Yes the tram generally runs rain or shine. However, if the weather is really stormy, the event is sometimes closed for the night. While such closures are somewhat rare, they are usually announced on OC's Facebook page.

Hi Judy,

The Winterfest lights are an annual tradition for our family.  One year it was raining and it was cold.  They still ran the tram.  We were dressed warmly and we had a blanket.  Please rememebr that you are in an open air tram and if it is raining hard and windy, the rain will come in sideways and you will get soaked making your experience miserable.

as the other's mentioned yes it does go on rain or shine. Or like darlene mentioned if there's a bad snow storm it's shut down.
