Big Red returns

At the end of a
two year construction process to build one of the most expensive, and
technically challenging aerial trams in the US, Jackson Hole once
again has the longest continuous vertical rise in North America!

The new Aerial Tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is twice the size of the original, carrying 100 passengers.  The sleek, new cabins,
and visually inspiring base terminal only add to the faster and more
efficient “cable to the sky”.

As well as the journey, it is the
destination that captures the spirit of the Jackson Hole Tram. Soaring
4,139 vertical feet in 9 minutes to the summit of Rendezvous Mountain
is unrivaled in the ski industry, cresting the Tetons with an endless choice of ski routes below, not to mention incredible 360 views.
