Teton Village offers something for everyone, from those who enjoy relaxing and spending tranquil time in nature to people who want to get their adrenaline pumping with hard-charging adventures.

Go for a sightseeing trip on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram—complete with a waffle at Corbet’s Cabin up top—or begin a hike from the summit. The famous tram climbs 4,139 feet in just 15 minutes to the top of Rendezvous Mountain. Watch for wildlife on the way—it’s not uncommon to see marmots, moose, foxes, and even bears from this unique vantage point.

The Bridger Gondola is also open for sightseeing and a launching point for hiking in the summer months. In the late afternoon, take the gondola to The Deck mid-mountain for an après session overlooking the valley and the Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges. Be sure to check the schedule ahead of time, since The Deck sometimes closes for private events.

The Jackson Hole Mountain Bike Park features trails rated with a system similar to the one used with ski runs, from beginner-friendly greens to expert-only double black diamonds. Hop on the Teewinot High Speed Quad for lift-accessed mountain biking, including everything from mellow downhill runs to jump-packed thrill-fests. Cross-country mountain biking is also available. Rent a bike and safety equipment or sign up
for a lesson at the base.

Teton Village’s Disc Golf Course provides a great way to enjoy the outdoors while getting a little exercise and relaxing with friends. Stop by Jackson Hole Sports to pick up a score card and stock up on discs. The free, 18-hole course begins just uphill from the shop. The Grand Adventure Park offers a variety of activities like a ropes course, climbing wall, and bungee trampoline.

Climb high on the Via Ferrata, which opens mid-June, depending on snow conditions. This guided mountain adventure lets people experience climbing via ladders, rungs, and suspension bridges.

Go for a hike and explore a number of trails up and along the mountains. Be prepared for wildlife encounters and keep bear spray easily accessible, not buried deep in your bag. Enjoy a horseback ride, or soar high over the valley in a scenic hot air balloon. Bring the kids to the Teton Village Commons to enjoy the playground and pop-jet fountains.

Indulge in a day of relaxation at one of Teton Village’s spas or spend the day shopping. Grab a bite to eat or relax with a drink at one of the area’s numerous restaurants and bars.

Grab tickets to one of the spectacular performances by world-renowned performers at the Grand Teton Music Festival or kick back and enjoy the free Concerts on the Commons shows. There’s truly something for everyone at Teton Village.
