JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announced today that their aerial tram will not operate during summer 2021.

The resort said the closure is happening so they that conduct extensive scheduled maintenance through early fall in preparation for next winter’s operation.

“Ongoing maintenance will take place this summer on the tram,” said Vice President of Operations, Tim Mason. “Last summer we started this work, and we were unable to get specialized skilled workers into the country to complete the job due to COVID travel restrictions.  We have a good plan in place for the work this summer, and we look forward to welcoming skiers and riders back onto Big Red winter 2021-22.”

The summer season at the resort begins Saturday, May 22, 2021, with the operation of the Bridger Gondola. New this summer, the Sweetwater Gondola will open on Saturday, June 12, 2021, in addition to Teewinot Chairlift to expand the JH Bike Park with three new trails and over 1,000 vertical feet of advanced and expert terrain in addition to the classic Bike Park terrain off Teewinot.
