Jackson Hole’s famed 100-person tram, aka “Big Red,” is so much more than an engineering masterpiece. It’s a conduit to access 4,139 vertical feet of iconic inbounds terrain and thousands of additional acres of sidecountry and backcountry skiing. In 15 minutes, tram passengers are transported from the base of Teton Village to the summit of Rendevous Mountain, where the skiing and riding options are endless.

Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
