The Big One is Back, December 2008
The new Jackson Hole Aerial Tram will cement Jackson Hole as the top ski destination in North America.

The countdown is on as the new Aerial Tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is due to launch the weekend of December 20, 2008.  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.

The Jackson Hole Aerial Tram has been an icon for Jackson Hole and the State of Wyoming since its maiden voyage in 1966.  This December, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort launches a new era following over $100 million in on-mountain capital improvements including the new Aerial Tram, newly built on-mountain restaurants and a commitment to offset 100% of its energy usage.  Renowned as the best ski terrain in North America, the on-mountain improvements along side the recent construction of luxury hotels and environmental initiatives, give Jackson Hole its unique status.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Offsets 100% of its Energy Use
 JHMR is offsetting 100% of our electricity usage with renewable energy from a renewable source mix including wind, biomass, small hydro and geothermal. This commitment is just part of a robust company wide environmental management system including using sustainable construction for the new Bridger Restaurants and adopting a visionary mass transit program for staff and season passholders.  Annually audited by KPMG, JHMR is extremely proud of our ISO 14001 registration, one of only two ski resorts, and one of the smallest companies to achieve this in the US.
