Alpine Race Training

Snow King Mountain has been a ski racing hub since before it was a resort! The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club began in 1938 right here at the King.

The Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club is now accepting reservations for early season training at Snow King Mountain. Temperature and weather permitting training will begin mid-November and run through December 21, 2018.  Racing lanes are available all season long with special request.

With the installation of a new snowmaking system and enhanced lighting, Snow King Mountain is evolving into a world-class race training facility used by members of the US ski team and other national teams.
