Teton Village Offers Respite & Recreation to Summer Vacationing Families

Following the spring run-off, when valley streams and rivers swell with a winter's worth of snow and herds of wildlife head to the hills to enjoy the greenery, Jackson Hole plays host to another nomadic group: the family on summer vacation.

Arriving in Jackson Hole, the question is not "what is there to do?" but "we must stay longer?" In the 2002 Family Fun Magazine Reader's Poll, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was named TOP FAMILY RESORT in Mountain/Plains division. Neighboring Yellowstone National Park was rated the number three highest scoring attraction in America.

Teton Village, nestled against the Tetons at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort continues to be a popular destination for visiting families during the summer. Just one mile from the entrance to Grand Teton National Park families welcome the convenience of lodging, restaurants and activities as well as all the Park access. The Aerial Tram rises 4,139 above the valley offering incredible views of Jackson Hole and the Tetons. Once on top of Rendezvous Mountain, hiking is available into surrounding Bridger-Teton National Forest. Summer guides offer moderate hikes from the top, educating summer naturalists on the surrounding flora and fauna.

If hiking down the mountain isn't appealing, there is always the option to fly. Two Can Fly Paragliding allows kids and parents unparalleled views of the valley during a tandem paraglide ride from 10,450 feet.

The Grand Teton Music Festival is in full swing during July and August and holds weekly "Young People's Concerts" that are tailored to the younger music lover. For more information on the Grand Teton Music Festival, log on to www.gtmf.org.

Other Teton Village summer activities include scaling our climbing wall, horseback riding into Grand Teton National Park, fishing in the Crystal Springs Pond and the Kid's Ranch Summer Day Camp. Children as young as two months are eligible for daycare, and kids from three to nine years old enjoy a camp-like environment with activities based on weekly themes. Activities may include horseback rides, hikes, outdoor sports and science/art projects.

Following a successful first year, the Kids' Ranch will continue to offer Team Extreme, a daily outdoor program for kids ages nine to fifteen. Summer Team Extreme participants will receive instruction on mountain biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, orienteering, soccer, roller blading, hiking, camping and environmental awareness. For more information on the summer Team Extreme program offered June 17 to Aug. 30, contact the Cody House Kids' Ranch: 307-739-2691.

Jackson Hole Aerial Tram

While you stand on the tram dock, waiting to load up, the sun heating your face, the mountain breeze refreshing your lungs, the anticipation of your hiking excursion making you antsy, you amusingly remember the last time you stood in this very place...It was just a mere 3 months ago, the air was 50 degrees colder, the breeze sent chills down your spine and goosebumps on your neck, and the anticipation was for your imminent, 4139' journey down the mountain through a fresh 12" of snow...Seems like yesterday. You load the tram, finding comfort in one thing that remains the same no matter what season you visit or in which sport you partake: this mountain is like nothing you have experienced before!

The tram is not only a fun ride with spectacular views of the area, but it's also an ideal starting point for a variety of activities: guided hiking tours, backpacking trips, paragliding, and rock climbing. The Aerial Tram leaves every 15 to 30 minutes and carries up to 45 people. Depending on weather and demand, the schedule may vary. Mountain weather can change in a hurry, and it may be chilly at the top, so dress accordingly. If you plan to hike or climb, carry plenty of water.  Sorry, no reservations are taken.
