I took a ride on the Tram last October for my birthday. This is a great way to see the mountain side. The views are beautiful as you soar high above the ground, if you are lucky you may even spot some wildlife (on my first trip we spotted a bear). Once you reach the top there is a restaurant where you can sit and have a nice meal or there are hiking trails so you can continue to enjoy the beauty of the mountain, this time close up. Whatever you decide to do I highly recommend staying to watch the sunset, and once it is dark seeing the lights of Albuquerque is quite breathtaking.
