Rushmore Tramway Adventures has many activities to enjoy during summer months. Please be aware of the following while enjoying what we have to offer.

  • Weather: Weather can change rapidly in the mountains. Be prepared. Wear proper footwear and clothing for the activity, stay hydrated and check the weather forecast before you head out. Carry extra layers if appropriate. Please visit for updates.
  • Terrain: Keep in mind that in the event of an emergency, you may be required to walk in a variety of terrain. Dress appropriately for a rugged alpine environment!
  • Mountain Maintenance: Be aware that there may be vehicles and equipment operating at any time on the mountain. Keep adequate distance from vehicles and equipment for your own safety.
  • Wildlife: There is a wide variety of wildlife you may encounter while recreating here. Do not approach or feed wildlife. Bear spray is recommended. Making noise may also help in avoiding wildlife confrontations.
  • Signs: Obey all posted signs and warnings.
  • Lightning: Know what to do if you see or hear lightning. Seek shelter immediately in a building if available. Avoid being the tallest object in the area and avoid open areas. Stay away from isolated tall trees or utility poles. Stay away from any metal conductors. If in a group, spread out to avoid the potential for multiple injuries.
  • High-Altitude Environment: If you live at a lower elevation, you may tire more easily. Take it easy at first, plan short trips until you are acclimated, and drink plenty of water. Some visitors may experience symptoms associated with Jackson’s high altitude. Symptoms may include headaches, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, restless sleep, coughing, and difficulty in breathing. If symptoms persist or if you have a concern about your health, you should seek medical attention.
