Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) will be operating its Aerial Tram this season, but with new health and safety protocols. 

Tram capacity will be reduced to 25 people per cabin plus a tram operator to allow for physical distancing and to keep guests and staff safe, according to a press release from JHMR. Under normal conditions, the tram can hold 100 people. But these are no normal conditions, and JHMR is doing all it can to keep its guests safe from the spread of the coronavirus.

Face coverings for guests will be required at all times while onboard the tram, when loading, and when standing in the tram line.

As in previous seasons, the tram will operate on a first-come, first-served basis, and skiers and riders will line-up in the tram line maze, which will be set up in a way to maximize physical distancing.

“Operating the Aerial Tram safely this winter is a key priority,” stated Vice President of Operations, Tim Mason. “While it’s a different winter with new capacity protocols, we also recognize the importance of this lift when it comes to providing access to our upper mountain and the backcountry, and having guests physical distance while wearing face coverings when loading, riding and unloading is the only way we can operate safely,” he said in the press release.

Also new this season is the JH Insider app, which will include estimated Aerial Tram wait times to assist guests this winter. It will also have information on dining, parking, and transportation.
