Yes, we post about Jackson Hole a lot, but that’s because it is such an amazing place. If you’ve visited then you know: it’s entirely possible to share a chairlift with a ski legend, belly up to a cowboy bar beside a celebrity or stumble onto the tram with a rock star. And that last situation happened just a few days ago when Michael Franti performed an acoustic version of his hit song “I’m Alive” with 45 lucky tram riders.

On March 29, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort posted this message on Twitter:

“Acoustic #tramjam with @michaelfranti right now. First 45 people in tram line go up.”

What happened next may have been the most intimate concert in Jackson Hole history. Here’s video evidence of the #TramJam session:

In other Jackson Hole news, a huge storm dropped 25 inches of new snow on the Tetons last week, putting the Jackson’s season snowfall total at 485 inches. We’re betting that the resort reaches 500 inches of snow before their season closes on April 6. They’ve already surpassed their 450-inch annual average snowfall, so you could say this year was pretty good.

While it might be too late to have your only-in-Jackson-Hole experience this ski season, summer is a great time to visit the Tetons with excellent hiking, mountain biking and sight-seeing in nearby Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.
