Full review

This resort was a good place to go for an afternoon, since it is pretty cheap for lift tickets and it is conveniently located in downtown Jackson Hole. It is a 15 drive from Teton Village where many other skiers and snowboarders stay but not unreasonable by any means. This is a very steep terrain though with only one or two legit green trails and the rest very steep black diamond trails. The have a good slalom course and a very small terrain park with no lift line back to the top of it. One of the big downfalls of snow king is the fact that the mountain is almost totally in the shade due to its position with makes it for a cold day on the slopes.
