Things to do in Jackson Hole

A ski hill thrill ride... without the skis

Experience a mountain roller-coaster ride unlike any other on Snow King’s Cowboy Coaster!

In winter, blow by skiers and snowboarders while enjoying breathtaking views of the snow-swept Tetons as you descend the equivalent of a 45-story building. In summer, Snow King’s stunning wildflower meadows will encircle you on your ride as you zip you through nearly a mile of loops, curves, and drops.

Take in Teton views as you’ve never seen them before at Jackson’s most exciting attraction!
