Nearby Ski Resort Offers Superb Skiing
The time was about noon on Sunday and we decided to get in an afternoon ski at Snow King Mountain – The Town Ski Area – know to the locals as “THE KING“! I was skiing with my son Caleb – 14 yrs old who has been skiing since he was 2 yrs old and thus is always waiting at the bottom for me after each run. After riding the Summit Chairlift to the top of The KING, we took some time to check out the awesome views of the Teton Mountain Range and some of the other surrounding mountains. What a bonus to skiing at The KING!
The weather was sunny & clear with temperatures in the upper 20′s. We skied one of our favorites, “Belly Roll Trail,” a Black Diamond Run that rolls down the mountain with plenty of moguls. We also skied “Elk and Grizzly Trails” from the top, which offers great views of the town of Jackson with the Tetons in the background – these runs were skiing super.
Snow King Mountain also offers some other winter activities which include the Tube Park, Night Skiing and a Indoor Ice Rink with Public Skating and the Home of the Jackson Hole Moose Hockey Team. Check in with our concierge at Spring Creek Ranch for more details on these activities. Snow King Mountain recently hosted members from The USA and French Olympic Ski Teams for some ski race training before headed to 2010 Winter Game in Vancouver. So check out Snow King Mountain on your next winter visit to Jackson Hole – see you all at THE KING!
