After the resort's legendary tram shut down in 2006, a new $25-million, 100-passenger tram opened for the 2008-09 ski season. From the top, you can see the Tetons from an elevation above 10,000 feet -- or 9,000 for the Bridger Gondola -- but don't expect a private tour. During busy summer days, the tram carries 45 passengers, packed in like the skiers that take the lift in the winter. The top of Rendezvous Mountain offers an incredible view; but it can get pretty chilly, even in the middle of summer, so bring a light coat. Atop the Bridger Gondola at 9,095 feet, two restaurants -- upscale Couloir and the Headwall Deli -- offer a place to eat before you head back down.
