JHMR’s iconic Aerial Tram will be taken offline this 2020 summer due to social distancing guidelines amidst COVID-19 and will undergo extensive maintenance originally scheduled for 2021. JHMR was able to push up the maintenance schedule and will conduct recommended track rope slipping and bollard repair throughout this summer and fall. All the work will be completed late fall well in advance of normal winter operations

Grand Teton National Park
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort shares a boundary with Grand Teton National Park (GTNP), and we encourage all our guests to experience this incredible natural environment. Park your car, strap on your pack and head out on trails into the heart of GTNP.
We strongly encourage you to have a detailed trail guide book and topographical map if planning on heading into GTNP.
Teton Crest Trail
A must-do hike for any backpacker, the Teton Crest Trail starts at Teton Pass and follows the ridgelines through Teton Village all the way to Mt. Moran at the north end of GTNP. Jump start your Teton Crest Trail experience with a ride on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram, avoiding the initial 4,139 feet uphill hike, to meet the trail at the top of Rendezvous Mountain. The trail follows the high crest through wildflower meadows, around glacial lakes and directly to panoramic views. Backpackers can end their adventure at a number of different locations depending on the desired length of the trip. This is a true wilderness adventure and an experience of a lifetime. However, it requires extensive backcountry experience, endurance and skills. If you are not up for a multi-day hike*, check out Marion Lake and Granite Canyon for day hike options in GTNP.
This hike starts at the summit of Rendezvous Mountain and makes its way up through alpine and sub-alpine terrain to Marion Lake in GTNP. This is a great overnight in the backcountry*. Trail distance is 12.5 miles roundtrip, requiring 7 hours and 4,250 feet total vertical rise.
From the top of the tram, take this strenuous hike down into Granite Canyon's alpine forest in GTNP, ending at the Teton Village base area; or hike from bottom to top for an uphill challenge. Trail distance is 11 miles one way, requiring 7 hours and 4,100 feet total vertical rise/descent. You can avoid the Valley Trail hike to Teton Village by arranging a shuttle from Teton Village to the Granite Canyon trailhead.
The most moderate of them all, the Valley Trail originates in the Teton Village base area and traverses along relatively flat terrain to Phelps Lake, adjacent to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve in GTNP. The trail winds through alpine forests that are home to local wildlife such as bears, moose and marmots and provide great views of the valley. The hike ends at the shores of Phelps Lake and provides an ideal spot for picnicking and swimming. Trail distance is 5.1 miles one way, requiring 2-3 hours and minimal vertical rise. Shuttle a car to your destination if you only want to hike one way.
*All backcountry camping requires a permit and park-approved bear canister. These can be obtained at GTNP ranger stations or visitor centers.
