Winter explorers celebrate! The Powder Alliance, home to the greatest powder stashes in the West, now includes Snow King Mountain in Jackson Hole, WY.  Within steps from downtown Jackson, Snow King Mountain is your place to ski some of the steepest runs in the region or just cruise the new backside bowl. If you’re not hitting the slopes, Snow King also offers terrific activities like the Cowboy Coaster and Tubing for those who just want to play in the snow. 

“Snow King Mountain is stoked to join the Powder Alliance. With our new gondola, backside lift, expanded ski terrain, and upgraded snowmaking we are sure Mountain High pass holders will be excited to explore the new Snow King Mountain,” said President and GM Ryan Stanley.   

Established in 1936 Snow King is Jackson Hole’s original ski area and the first in Wyoming. Locals sometimes refer to Snow King as "The Town Hill," with skiing, hiking, North America’s Steepest Zip Line, and many other attractions. There’s nothing residential about this mountain though. Snow King offers 1,571ft of vertical with plenty of upper-level terrain and great new beginner-intermediate terrain introduced in 2022.  With the new Snow King Gondola, guests can travel up the hill in just a few minutes to enjoy amazing views and all the awesome skiing and boarding terrain the King has to offer. 

With a top elevation of 7,808ft, Snow King packs a punch with trails up to a mile long. Their average operating season is December through lateMarch. To learn more about Snow King Mountain, visit their website at
