The tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain (elevation 10,449’) at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort made its last run of the winter on Sunday, April 3. The closing of the Village at this time marks the beginning of the end of ski season for many in Jackson. Lift access is over; the snow line in the Tetons starts to rise.
