World-Class Skiing on World-Class Mountains

Powder plus skis equals joy-filled winter sport. At Snow King Resort Hotel we take powder seriously because having fun is serious business. From ski rentals at Snow King Mountain to après-ski hot chocolate (Schnapps, anyone?), your winter adventure starts here. And if you have time, you really should try the other hills in our neck of the woods, Grand Targhee over the pass in Driggs, Idaho, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, twelve miles west. If snowmobiling or Nordic is your thing, Togwotee Pass is just over an hour north. For a once-in-a-lifetime snowmobiling adventure, try a full-day tour in Yellowstone National Park. With more annual snowfall than other resorts in the lower-48 Rocky Mountain Region, these winter playgrounds offer lifts, gondolas, an aerial tram, and miles upon miles upon miles of ski trails to meet any ability, anytime. 

Area Ski Resorts

Snow King Mountain

Jackson’s own “Town Hill” is the hub of skiing in Jackson Hole. With the steepest north-facing FIS racecourse in the U.S., seasoned skiers have an opportunity to ski where pros have raced. Such a challenge is not for everyone, so little tykes and newbies have areas that meet their abilities, too. Add a rockin’ inner tube slide and an outdoor hockey rink and you’ve got a full-fledged winter wonderland.

Grand Targhee Resort

Up and over Teton Pass and into Driggs, Idaho, the ‘Ghee, as it is commonly called, offers beginner-to-expert terrain across 76 trails on 2,600 acres in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Averaging over 500 inches of powder per year, the ‘Ghee is about an hour drive to the western side of the Tetons.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Steep and speedy terrain takes you from the 10,450-foot peak at Rendezvous Mountain to its base, four thousand feet below. In operation from late November to April, there are ten chairlifts, a gondola and an aerial tram. The resort offers great restaurants and shops to meet all interests in a chalet-like setting. Snow King Resort Hotel provides a free shuttle to this ski area, 12 miles west of Jackson.
