Looking for a new way to enjoy summer in Jackson Hole? The base area activities at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort fall under the category of “must-do” family activities. Soar above it all (safely) on the bungee tramp and have fun while learning some basic climbing skills on the climbing wall.

The Jackson Hole Bike Park opens for the season on June 15th Saturday and the trails are in incredible shape. We’ve gotten to get out and “Sample the product” a little bit this week and can’t wait until the Teewinot lift starts spinning on Saturday. Check out our Mountain Biking page for details.

JHMR athlete Andrew Whiteford takes us for a spin on a great local Jackson Hole cross-country mountain bike ride. Right now the wildflowers are out, the dirt is tacky and the riding is out of this world. Enjoy!

What is a tram splice? If you’ve been around Teton Village this week and seen this covered walkway on the tram cables, no, this isn’t some cool new summer activity. The tram cables were shortened by roughly 5 meters as routine use stretches out the cables, and this shortening process keeps the cables tight. This is done every few years and is just a part of us keeping the mountain safe.
The 46th Annual Boy Scout Elk Antler Auction was held in Jackson Hole over the weekend.

The tulips welcomed us to Teton Village this morning. It is shaping up to be another great day in Jackson Hole. I saw my first wild flowers of the season this week as well. Get out for a hike and see what you can see.
It is starting to feel like summer in the Tetons. Friday saw the opening of the South enterance to Yellowstone National park. The opening of the park roads is always an unoffical milestone marking the start of another summer in the Tetons. Along with the park opening we have been experiencing warm sunny days. This has helped to dry out many of the biking and hiking trails and free the lakes of ice leading to endless recreational opportunities for visitors and locals alike. Of course, we are still a ways away from enjoy the higher altitude trails, but there is plenty to do. Here are a few suggestions:
1. Hike the Jenny Lake trail in Grand Teton National Park. – Jenny Lake offers some of the most beautiful views of the Tetons and the Cathedral Group in the park. The 7 mile trails circles the lake and is one of the easiest hikes in the park.
2. Visit Yellowstone – Spring and early summer is a fantastic time to visit Yellowstone. The animals are moving around after a long winter, plants are in bloom and the road are less crowded than the height of the summer season. Bring your camera, binoculars and a picinic basket and create a few lasting memories.
3. Mountain Bike Cache Creek – Jackson Hole is home to incredible mountain biking. Much of it can be found in the Cache Creek drainage. Hop on your bike and go for a spin. The word is that most of the trails are free of mud and snow and are in great shape.
