Test Your Skiing and Snowboarding Skills

Take a Scenic Tram Ride
Taking a ride on the Jackson Hole Tram is a must. This aerial tram ride can hold up to 100 passengers and lifts you to above 10,000 feet in only nine minutes. It’s nicknamed Big Red and has been a beloved attraction since 1966. Riders will get to experience incredible panoramic views and check out Grand Teton National Park. The tram will take you to Rendezvous Peak, where you can choose to start your descent down the mountain on skis or partake in the tradition of enjoying delicious waffles at Corbet’s Cabin. Corbet’s also offers hot and cold drinks, snacks, beer, and even souvenirs.
