YESTERDAY I WENT on an expedition to the top of an 11,166-foot peak. Lone Peak, to be specific, on the inaugural Lone Peak Expedition: Tram to the Top. It’s the first time the tram has run in the summertime, and while, granted, you don’t get to ski down, the trip up might just be (gasp!) an even cooler experience than riding in winter.
We started at 9am under clear blue skies in the Mountain Village. A lift, safari vehicle, and tram ride later, we were peering all the way over to the Tetons. We even spotted a fox, a deer, and a family of mountain goats along the way. But don’t take my word for how beautiful and rugged it was – all you have to do it check out the photos.
