Other Nearby Places to Visit
It may come as a surprise to those who haven’t been to Jackson Hole, WY, but there are actually three ski resorts -- Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee and Snow King Mountain Resort. While the Jackson Hole ski resort may be the most recognizable name, Snow King Mountain Resort has been attracting skiers since 1939 and is the hub for many activities. In the early days, fit skiers would hike to the summit so they could ski down. Today’s skiers have access to three chairlifts providing access to 400 acres of skiable terrain with plenty of trails for beginners, intermediates and experts from the end of November through mid-April. Night skiing is also available during this time. Ski and snowboard classes for children and adults are available. Its relative small size makes Snow King Mountain Resort family-friendly and a good place for kids to practice their skills. Snow King Mountain Resort, known as The Town Hill, is the ski area seen from Town Square or while strolling along the boardwalks of Jackson. Non-skiers will find plenty of activities too. Things to do with kids at Snow King Mountain Resort in winter include tubing and snowshoeing. Older kids may enjoy the challenge of snow biking and ice climbing. In summer, families will find an array of activities to enjoy together. For example, the Snow King Summit Lift is a scenic ride to the top of the mountain for panoramic views of the Teton Range. From the summit families have access to miles of hiking trails. Kids will especially enjoy the alpine slide, for ages two and older. A chairlift brings families to the alpine slide, then riders glide down on luge-style cars at their own pace through 2,500-feet of woods and wildflowers. There’s a picnic area at the bottom. More kid-friendly activities include mini-golf, bungee trampoline and horseback riding.
