A little more info
The Jackson Hole Tram was originally built in the heart of the Grand Tetons, just west of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After 26 months of construction, the tram was completed in 1966 and became the first of its kind in the United States. In 2006 after 50 years, the tram was decommissioned and plans were put into place for a replacement. A documentary titled "Cable to the Sky" followed the progress of the construction of the new tram, which was unveiled in December, 2008.
Today, the tram has some staggering stats:
- Base Area at 6,311 feet
- Rendezvous Peak Summit 10,450 feet
- Vertical drop of 4,139 feet
- 12,463 feet in length
- 2-car reversible tram carries 100 people per car
- Uphill capacity of 650 people per hour
