One of the year’s best summer additions to a ski resort just opened at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. On Friday, September 1st, the Wyoming ski resort opened up the Skywalk, which gives you dramatic views of the ski resort, the Grand Tetons, and the surrounding communities.

Located just a short walk from the top terminal of the Aerial Tram, purchasing a tram ride ticket gives you free access to the observation skywalk. While it gives some amazing views, you may rediscover your fear of heights along the way. A commenter on Facebook pointed out the similarities to the walkway around Clingsman Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, albeit a little less grand.

No word yet on what they plan to do with it during the wintertime, although I imagine some skiers and riders are already thinking of what tricks they can do by jumping off of it.

This weekend, Jackson Hole has opened up a few new summer activities. The other new thing that opened on Friday was the North Ridge Hiking Trail, adding to Jackson Hole’s already extensive hiking route network. Today, JH is opening up the Wild Woods Playground at Solitude Station, which is located next to the Sweetwater Gondola’s mid-station.

A video showing off the panoramic views is below.
