Always a fan of my history, life in Jackson can often be like a walking into a living history, especially if you wander across the Town Square at 6:00pm during the summer, and happen to get caught up in the Town Square Shoot Out! Just down the driveway from the Lobby of Snow King Hotel is one of Wyoming’s grandest pieces of history- our very first ski area!
Snow King Mountain Resort began with a single cable tow in 1939 and established Jackson’s reputation as a ski town. With its challenging steep terrain the “Town Hill,” remains a vital part of the community, cultivating generations of world-class skiers. From its founder, Neil Rafferty, to the latest faction of Jackson Olympians, “The King” represents the heart and soul of Jackson Wyoming. 2014 marks Snow King Mountain’s 75th year in operation and we are going to celebrate our King in style!
December 14th, 2013, mark your calendars! You don’t want to miss out on all the fun that will be had as we celebrate! Snow King Mountain Resort, and Snake River Brewing will be teaming up with us here at Hayden’s Post to throw a 75th Anniversary Party that even Neil Rafferty would have been proud of!
The festivities will begin with a FREE day of skiing at on Snow King Mountain, and co
ntinue into the evening with the tapping of Hayden’s Post’s first keg of Snow King Pale Ale- an American/English hybrid inspired by hoppy U.S. pales which uses characteristic English hops along with U.S. hops in generous quantity to create a new classic. A plethora of Snow King swag and raffle prizes will be awarded, including a season ski pass to Snow King Mountain, Snow King Pale Ale t-shirts and pint glasses, gift certificates to Hayden’s Post, Snow King Hotel and more.
In addition Snow King Mountain will host a 75th Anniversary Grand Celebration on February 8th, 2014, complete with a snow bike race, Randonee race, and free concert at the base area.
