The time has come. . . for the tram to re-open for the summer. This Saturday, May 28, 2016, marks the 50th summer season of the tram in operation. Locals flock to the hill to get those last few easy-access ski lines in. Tourists anxiously await the opening as one of the better high alpine views in the valley. As the weather this time of the year is super variable (as we just experienced this morning), it’s best to be prepared for all seasons of weather. Clouds, sun, snow, rain, and wind should all be expected.
Since the resort closed, we’ve received 43 inches of snow, a bit above the 40 year average of 30 inches. (Data taken from JHAvalanche.org Historical Data.)
The snow line is around 8,000′, or about the base of the Thunder Lift.
Join us in Teton Village this weekend to kick off the summer in style. Rent a bike, cruise around the pathways, grab a snack, and check out our mountaintop winter oasis in the middle of summer. Feel free to bring your skis or board but remember, no skiing inbounds. See you at the top!
