Ski Lifts in Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has 13 lifts and  an uphill capacity of 17,833 skiers per hour, making it one of the more easily navigable ski areas for its size and overall level of difficulty. All of the lifts that take you to the upper mountain converge at the central base area, except for the Aerial Tram (100-passenger cable car) which is accessed right from the main entrance to the Village.

The Tram attracts a lot of skiers right through the day, even when the rest of the resort seems empty. This is mainly because it’s the only lift reaching the magnificent wide sweep of the Rendezvous Bowl-steep, but frequently in great condition and not as intimidating as its pitch might suggest-and the backcountry of Cody Bowl and the various other gated entrances to what would normally be described as “out-of-bounds” areas for which Jackson is celebrated.

The lifts at the base include the 8-person Bridger Gondola, the 8-person Sweetwater Gondola, the beginner’s Eagle’s nest quad and the Teewinot quad which can either be used to access a gentle beginner area, or to get further uphill. 

On the upper mountain, you’ll find four high-speed quads (Thunder, Casper, Teton, Apres Vous), one fixed-grip quad (Sublette) and one double (Marmot). There is also the Moose Creek quad that connects those staying in the Village to the hill in combination with the Union Pass quad (which is also used by those who have finished a run in the Hobacks). 

The ski area is located on the north-south oriented Teton Range and the trails are generally east-facing. Anything that’s shaded on the trail map will generally correlate to getting less sun throughout the day so ski accordingly.

  • High Speed Quads: 4
  • Fixed-Grip Quads: 5
  • Doubles: 1
  • Magic Carpets: 2
