Great American Eclipse

Great American Eclipse: On August 21st of 2017, a rare total solar eclipse will traverse the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina.  Jackson Hole and Teton Village fall into the “path of totality” of this Great American Eclipse. That is to say, that in Teton Village and on Rendezvous Peak, we will experience the total eclipse for one of the longest durations possible, 2-3 minutes at 11:34 am MST. The partial phases of the eclipse will last 2-3 hours depending on your specific location, starting around 10:15am. Several factors, including fantastic scenery and generally clear summer skies, make Jackson and Teton Village a desirable destination for eclipse viewing.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is pre-selling all lift tickets for sightseeing that day, and they anticipate a sellout crowd. For more information, visit jacksonhole.com/summer/eclipse-2017.

We’re anticipating a very busy week surrounding the eclipse and ask visitors to get information to be prepared – visit tetoneclipse.com to make plans to view this special celestial phenomena.

Teton Village Association will host a special eclipse Concert on the Commons at 2:00 pm on August 21 featuring Pinky and the Floyd. We hope you’ll join us, but please remember to leave your pets and glass at home.

Parking will be limited in Teton Village on eclipse day; we recommend utilizing public transportation via the START Bus or bicycling/walking to Teton Village. START will be operating on their regular schedule with additional runs during peak periods; please consider parking at the Stilson Transit Center and riding START from there or from town. There is absolutely NO overnight camping permitted at the Stilson lot or in any Teton Village parking lot, extra security will be enforcing these restrictions. Daytime parking for RV’s will be permitted in the Ranch lot only.

For your safety, please DO NOT view this magnificent experience without your protective eclipse glasses.
