Snow King Resort, in the town of Jackson, Wyoming, was founded in 1939 as Jackson Hole’s first ski area. Since its beginnings, Snow King Resort of Jackson Hole has become a popular vacation destination year-round, known for its outstanding facilities and wonderful accommodation.
Boasting a practically perfect fall-line on its 400 acres of ski terrain, Snow King Resort is considered by many as a racer’s mountain. With a vertical rise of 1,571 and a summit elevation of 7,808 feet, Snow King has a patch of snowy landscape for everyone. Add to this the excellent snowfall and a world-class snow making system, and you are guaranteed ideal skiing conditions. The runs have been categorized as follows: 15% beginner, 25% intermediate and 60% advanced. Certainly this is an expert’s paradise, but that doesn’t mean new-comers will miss out. Snow King Resort has a brilliant ski school offering a variety of programs and lovely beginner runs. Five ski lifts transport excited skiers and snowboarders up the glistening snowy slopes to the runs. Snowboarders are invited to try out their moves at the terrain park, and the entire family will have a fun time at the snow tubing park. Cross-country skiers can join in on back-country guided tours. Snow King Resort truly offers an all-round mountain adventure with alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, telemark, snowboarding, snow tubing and a ski school.
But that isn’t all that Snow King Resort has for its visitors. At the base lodge patrons can rent equipment, visit various stores or entertain themselves on the indoor ice skating rink. If you need something to eat, you can make your way to Rafferty’s Cafe, Shady Lady Saloon or order some room service. Snow King Resort has some of the best ski-in/ski-out lodging, and you can choose from Snow King Resort Hotel, condominiums and the new Love Ridge Resort Lodges. Jackson Hole’s Snow King Resort is truly a complete vacation destination.
