You can park 20 feet from the bottom of the lift. Oh and its free. A season pass cost 120 bucks. It doesn't see sun untill late Feb. so its xtra icy for the racers. Look out though, if its a powder day, you might want to go to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. I dont know if you could handle skiing knee deep powder on classic terrain with 30 of your closest townie friends and no one else. Thats right, a powder day at snow king means you have to park on snow king avenue and walk 50-100 yards, seeing how the parking lot holds 30 or so cars. Check out the characters that work at this mountain. Real no frills ski bums, what you see is what you get. No trusties, just down to earth guys and girls lovin life. This is the stuff. Did I mention the terrain is steep as hell? The ski patrol is probably the best there is too. For a lesson check out the Great American SKi School operated by big mountain pioneer Bill Briggs. The King is no Joke. They got rid of the Shady Lady(best ski town bar ever) so for APres go across the street to 43 North. ITs not bad, well, its getting better-
