Teton Village Prepares for the Great American Eclipse

by Jackson Hole. Media

Teton Village Association (TVA) and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) would like to remind guests planning to view the eclipse on Monday, August 21st  in Teton Village to come prepared.   Lifts and activities will be operating on a special schedule for the day of the eclipse, and the Bike Park, Via Ferrata, and Jackson Hole Paragliding will not be operating.   A free public viewing area will be set up to the north of the Ranch Parking Lot, and all guests are encouraged to carpool or take START Bus, which is fare free for eclipse day.  A special Concert on the Commons featuring Pinky and the Floyd will take place at 2pm following the eclipse.

Limited quantities of Sweetwater Gondola tickets are still available for $50 and come with eclipse viewing glasses.  For more details and to purchase, click here.  Casper Restaurant at the top of the Sweetwater Gondola and Corbet’s Cabin at the top of the Aerial Tram will be open for food and beverages.  All tram and Sweetwater Gondola ticket holders are encouraged to pick up tickets from the Eclipse Will Call Office open starting Friday, August 18th at 9am.

Teton Village falls into the “path of totality” of the Great American Eclipse. That is to say, at JHMR and Teton Village, the total eclipse will be one of the longest durations possible, 2-3 minutes at 11:34 am MST.  Several factors, including fantastic scenery and generally clear summer skies, make Teton Village a desirable destination for eclipse viewing, so we’re anticipating a very busy day.  We ask all guests be prepared with food, water, and supplies to be in a mountain environment for an extended amount of time.

Best practices for safe viewing of the eclipse, can be found here:
