The June 2005 decision to close the Aerial Tram October 2006 was made following 18 months of unprecedented evaluation into all facets of Tram operations by leading industry engineers. The results required JHMR to make a decision regarding ongoing tram operations. Although tough and emotional news, JHMR is now focusing its attention on the future and feasible solutions regarding tram replacement.
Discussions with two lift manufacturers will render JHMR with a couple of complete scenarios for review. We are focused on either a tram or a bi-cable gondola, both on a similar alignment to the existing tram. The financing of either project is being discussed internally. "We have decided at this time to not concentrate our efforts on outright appropriation but instead are researching other public and private financing mechanisms," commented Jerry Blann, President JHMR. "We will keep the public informed as soon as financing alternatives are thoroughly evaluated which will allow for a replacement decision to be made." He added.
For Winter 2006/07
With the absence of the tram, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will implement the following measures to ensure guests can ski or ride 100% of the mountain, lift out of the base is quick and efficient, and lift access to the summit of Rendezvous Bowl and the infamous Jackson Hole backcountry terrain remains.
- Million Dollar Cowboy Bar - This legendary local bar on the square offers a much-used dance floor, saddles as bar stools, a silver dollar inlayed bar, and even a few pool tables.
TRAM DAYS SPECIALS
To make sure everyone gets one last ride, we will run 2 extra tram cars per day (roughly an extra 30 minutes a day) during the two weeks. Remember the old $2 Tram Coupons last valid 10 years ago?

MILLER OVERTAKES COCHRAN FOR U.S. GIANT SLALOM TITLE
SUGARLOAF, Maine (March 28) - Local favorite Bode Miller (Bretton Woods, NH) took advantage of some hesitation Tuesday by Olympic teammate and first-run leader Jimmy Cochran (Keene, NH) to pick off his eighth national title, winning the giant slalom at the 2006 TD Banknorth U.S. Alpine Championships.
Miller, who spent his elite developmental years at nearby Carrabassett Valley Academy, earned his second gold medal of the championships at Sugarloaf USA with a two-run time of 2:08.15. His eighth U.S. championship puts him right behind Tiger Shaw and the late Dick Durrance, who won nine titles each.
