If ride the tram - get tickets online to save $5. We were so disappointed that we didn't get to spend but maybe 15 minutes on top of the mountain. Several storms were rolling in from the back side of the mountains. Finally the tram crew agreed to take up one more group but really wanted us to come straight back down. Since the rained had stopped they let us get off in time to grab a waffle (don't bother unless really hungry) and look around. We were informed that if we didn't take the tram down we may be stuck up there or have to walk the 7.6 miles down the mountain. We obeyed and glad we did since we went into the Mangy Moose Bar/restaurant and within a few minutes a bad storm with strong winds and hard rain came down obscuring the whole mountain. So if you our worried about the tram ride don't be. The staff controlling the tram were super nice and safety came first. We even had a person whose asthma was acting up and they talked very sweet with her and told her they couldn't guarantee she would do well on top and that they just used up the last of their oxygen on top with another lady who they had just made an emergency run to bring her down to the waiting ambulance. We had friends that went up earlier that day when it was sunny and decided to walk the 3 mile hike to The Deck. The got lots of sun, got hailed on once, rained on twice and a little scared towards the in. They said the trail was wide, loose rock on a gravel road but if you are not accustom to the altitude you probably shouldn't do and make sure no matter the weather when you start out take your rain coat and plenty of water. Say the last part of the hike is all up hill so be in decent shape.

At the base of Rendezvous Mtn. is the Walk Music Festival Hall, the site of the Grand Teton Music Festival which takes place for 7 weeks in July and August. Tuesday through Saturday evenings there are wonderful classical music concerts with top notch musicians from all over the US, with all the principals being principals in their home orchestras. We were blown away by our first visit there this year and will make it an annual visit. Before the concert at 8:00 (6:00 on Saturdays) we took the free tram to The Deck atop Rendezvous Mountain for a delicious light supper. It's a 15 minute ride so you can plan your arrival for the concert perfectly.

I had been investigating things to do in the Jackson area and knew this was high up on the list. We (dad, mom and two boys) took the tram to the top mid morning. Be advised it is worth it to take a light jacket or sweatshirt, because of the temperature drop at the top, and it can get windy. Enjoyed the ride and the views were spectacular! Check on the family rate which does offer a discount off the regular rate.

Summer trip. Safe and fun. Lots do do with or without kids. Very touristy. Opportunity for respite from the mountains with high end cocktails at the Four Seasons Hotel bar.

My 3 sons and 2 grandsons went parasailing off Rendezvous Mountain tandem with an instructor. It was a great experience for all of them, pricey but an unforgettable adventure.
