The Great America Solar Eclipse of 2017
On August 21, 2017 the United States will experience its first visible solar eclipse since 1979! This spectacular sight will be visible at about 11:35am in/around Jackson Hole and those visiting the area will get two minutes and twenty seconds of pure cosmic bliss. During a total eclipse the Moon will completely block the Sun turning daytime into a deep twilight with nothing but the Sun's corona visible. Stargazers from around the world are flocking to specific US locations along the path to witness this rare, exciting event. Jackson Hole and the southern portion of Grand Teton National Park coincide perfectly with the eclipse path making Jackson one of the most desired places to be this August!

In addition, starting Thursday September 15th at 12pm MDT, the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort will release a limited number of tram tickets for a chance to view the Eclipse from 10,450 feet! These tickets must be purchased separately via jacksonhole.com. Please visit http://www.jacksonhole.com/x/ECLIPSE-2017.html for tram ticket details and to purchase from the e-store. This will be a separate transaction and we recommend purchasing tickets now as these are predicted to sell out.
