Snow King: The Next 80 years

A future for our Town Hill

For generations Snow King Mountain has been a gathering place for the Jackson Hole community. From ski lessons and youth hockey games, to early morning hikes and scenic chairlift rides, Snow King has come to be lovingly referred to as Jackson’s Town Hill.

With growing competition from regional resorts in larger markets comes a renewed sense of urgency for the future of the town hill. In an effort to support Snow King’s viability for future generations, the mountain is seeking to improve infrastructure, and bring new amenities to the community. In partnership with the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Town of Jackson, Snow King aims to create a world-class mountain resort right in the heart of Jackson.

Here’s what the community is saying about the future of our town hill:

“Without improvements to its infrastructure, Snow King Mountain will struggle to remain a gathering place for our community. Let’s support the town hill.”

Environmental Protection

Being good stewards of our community means prioritizing efforts to mitigate our impact on the environment. Snow King Mountain Resort has committed to operating each of its three chairlifts on 100% Green Power. With the aim of setting a new benchmark for conservation in the mountain resort industry, Snow King is exploring additional opportunities for supporting the sustainability of public lands, wildlife, and a healthy environment. Snow King contributes a portion of it’s activity ticket sales to the National Forest Foundation, and plans to add interpretive elements to the summit of the mountain and nature trails as part of proposed improvements.

Community Contributions

Snow King Mountain is dedicated to improving the lives of families throughout our community by supporting a variety of Jackson Hole non-profit organizations. Over the past four years, Snow King has donated nearly $100,000 in activity tickets for fundraisers to over 100 Jackson Hole non-profits and community events. Through partnerships with organizations like the Doug Coombs Foundation, and the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club, Snow King has worked to make on and off-the-mountain recreation available to local youth of all economic backgrounds.
