Hiking up Snow King Mountain is something that you can get used to. The summer days up Snow King are sunny, lush and green and the views unbelievable. It s about a 1.8 mile trail ascending 1,500 vertical feet to the top of Snow King Mountain. The scenic views from the top are breathtaking. You can see the Grand Tetons, Teton Pass, a glimpse of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, The National Elk Refuge straight across, Gros Ventre & Sleeping Indian and of course you can see the Town of Jackson Hole just at the base of The King. The magnificent views are the true reward after quite a trip uphill. You do have the option of taking the chairlift back down ($5/rider) or you can hike back down. You will bump into many friendly hikers and their dogs along the way. Bring water, good shoes, plenty of sunscreen , bug repellent is a good call, and some shades to protect your eyes. The trail is easily accessed from the Snow King Mountain base area at the corner of Snow King Avenue & Cache Street about 4 blocks from the Town Square. If you’d rather cut out the uphill challenge ride the scenic lift up ($17/adult & $12/child) and hike the trail down? Or relax completely and just take the lift back down. Enjoy!
