All members of the family will love the famous, 100-passenger Jackson Hole Aerial Tram, which goes from Teton Village at 6,311 feet to the summit of Rendezvous Mountain at 10,450 feet.
This unforgettable journey whisks visitors an amazing 4,139 vertical feet for unbeatable views of the Tetons and surrounding Grand Teton National Park below. Passengers soar over diverse forests and often catch a glimpse of local wildlife, including bears, moose, eagles, mule deer, and more. The summit provides various trails that allow hikers to explore Rendezvous Mountain and join the 39-mile Teton Crest Trail that leads into Grand Teton National Park.
For those looking for more of an adrenaline rush, tandem paragliding flights launch from the tram summit and give riders sweeping valley views, as well as the largest vertical drop in America.
The tram is a year round outpost with incredible skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
The base in Teton Village is the gateway to the park, and offers fun family activities, world-class restaurants, and hotels. Riding the Aerial Tram is a must-do for any Grand Teton National Park visitor, and is the ultimate way to experience the grandeur of the mountains.
