Big Red will not run this summer.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, WY (JHMR) yesterday announced key dates and operational highlights for the upcoming Spring Season Pass Sale, summer 2021 operations, and Teton Village Sports remodel. This included the news that the iconic Aerial Tram will not operate, as the resort will conduct extensive scheduled maintenance through early fall in preparation for next winter’s operation.

The aerial tram did not run during summer 2020 either, due to maintenance work. However, the ability to perform the maintenance work was severely hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning the tram will need to close in summer 2021 to allow this work to be completed.

 “Ongoing maintenance will take place this summer on the tram. 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.”

– Vice President of Operations, Tim Mason
