Founded in 1936, Snow King is Jackson Hole’s original ski area and Wyoming’s first. Locals sometimes call Snow King “The Town Hill,” with skiing, hiking, North America’s steepest zipline, and other attractions. However, there is nothing “residential” about this mountain. Snow King offers 1,571 vertical feet with plenty of higher level terrain and great new beginner-intermediate terrain introduced in 2022. With the new Snow King Gondola, guests can ascend the hill in just minutes to enjoy views stunning and all the amazing skiing and boarding terrain the King has to offer.

With a top elevation of 7,808 feet, Snow King packs a punch with trails up to a mile long. Their average operating season is from December to the end of March. To learn more about Snow King Mountain, visit their website at
