Even the green trailsare steep when u get off lift goes immediately to steep trails. Not groomed well. Icy and crunchy snow. NOT FOR BEGINNERS. YOU WILL GET HURT!... Full Review
Our family had a ski lesson with Jeff and he was amazing! He took so much time with each one of us and worked with our individual ski needs. We all left feeling very confident, when we very reluctant waking in the door. Thank you Jeff for being so positive and helpful! We all learned so much from you!!!... Full Review
Loved the easy access, uncrowded slopes, plenty of advanced terrain and super friendly staff. A fraction of the price of their neighbor Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Great place for the family to take a lesson and have some fun together. The coaster was a blast. ... Full Review
It has a great brewery near it with excellent food ... Full Review
Convenient hill, blocks from downtown Jackson. Seems everyone skis elsewhere because it was a ghost town. No lines, but bare bones hill. Conditions were showing the effects of a warm spring with many runs skied out and showing bare ground.

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. ... Full Review
We stayed at the Snow King not Knowing they had a hill and free lift for people staying there! Very fun for night skiing and a great warm up for Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. It's seems small (Jackson Hole is HUGE) but still preaty steep.... Full Review
You cannot beat snow kings location, right in the middle of town. It is perfect for taking a break from work and getting in half a day of steep runs and an awesome view of Jackson Hole. Plus night skiing til 7 from Tuesday til Saturday. Overall the mounntain is small and steep unless you stick to the tiny bunny slope. The snow is never as good as it is out at the village( Jackson hole resort) but the ticket prices compensate quite nicely.... Full Review
it is very close to the hotels and condos and the snow is decent its also close enough to walk to almost anywhere in jackson and so you can walk just about everywhere and if you are willing to drive a little way or ride a bus for half an hour you can get to jackson hole if you are looking to branch out great place very fun...

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-
out with fur and in with flannel
