history bookJackson Hole tramway is known in the U.S. for its relatively steep terrain and its vertical drop, and is one of North America's highest tramways at 4,140 feet. Jackson Hole has become the home to many of the world's best free skiers as the terrain is considered to be some of the most challenging in North America. Jackson Hole has hosted World Cup ski races in 1967, 1970, and 1975.
