Dog Days are here at Snow King Hotel!

Wyoming isn’t sit and stay territory: it’s a locale that encourages all inhabitants to run and play! Snow King Hotel encourages the same for all of our guests, two and four-legged. Nestled at the base of the Bridger Teton National Forest, with its multitude of dog friendly trails, Snow King Resort’s paws are waiting to welcome you and your furry child. We can’t wait to show you all the good places throughout Jackson to hike, bike, shop and be merry with your favorite Fido.

Here at Snow King Hotel, our dog friendly guest rooms have no size, or breed restrictions. There is no judgment here. Your guest room will become the place you and your pooch relax and rejuvenate for the next day of adventures.  Each room is conveniently located with easy access to the outdoors for those pre-bedtime potty walks and early morning Chuck-it sessions. 

Hayden’s Post, the hotel’s basecamp inspired restaurant, allows well behaved four legged friends to join you as you indulge in delicious deck top dining. With gorgeous views of Snow King Mountain and all the fun to be had in the town below, we have no doubt Rover will make your after dinner plans active enough that you won’t feel any guilt completing your delectable meal.  

Our concierge team is well versed in all the dog friendly activities throughout the Valley, from dog parks to hiking trails, galleries, shops, restaurants that are dog friendly, hidden fishing holes to areas where your pup can chase your mountain bike for hours.  Our Guest Services team will be sure to send you in the right direction for a dog’s perfect day. They also know the best doggy day care facilities for when mom and dad want to spend the day skiing at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, exploring Yellowstone, or floating down the Snake River. And should someone get a little messy, or require a little extra help, the numbers for a dog washer or veterinarian are always within an arm’s reach as well. 

 

No matter what brings you and your furbaby to Jackson Hole, Snow King Hotel is ready to make sure you both have the times of your life! We can’t wait to see you!

We Are the Champions...

We Are the Champions...

There is nothing quite like being deemed the very best at something. Today’s children may get trophy’s for participation, but in my youth the only trophies displayed in the glass case outside the Principal's office were the ones that said your team were Victors! There was an honor that came from fellow students when you walked down the hallways with a “State Champion” patch on your letterman’s jacket. Unfortunately, the glory of high school is not to be repeated for most of us. Only a select few have the skills and natural born talent to rise through the collegiate and professional ranks. Alas, the joy of being able to flaunt that your school, or perhaps even you, are better than everyone else often stays behind with your letterman’s jacket and your SAT scores as you continue on in your “grown up” life.

Once in a while, however, the gods shine down upon us grown-ups, and we are able to relive the glory usually constrained to spirit assemblies, pregame pep rallies and tailgates. For the people of Jackson, both young and old, that time is now. Our mountain, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR,) has been deemed the “Number One Overall Ski Resort in North America for 2014” by Ski Magazine.  From the top of our lungs, at the top of the tram we channel our inner State Champion Swimmer and shout: “WE’RE NUMBER ONE! WE’RE NUMBER ONE!”

In 26 years that Ski Magazine has been conducting their annual survey JHMR has surprisingly only been in the top ten once before, last year 2013, when they were ranked #6 overall resort. What makes this award even more impressive is who it comes from. This is not a bunch of people in an office who can be wooed with gifts of free gear or ski vacations for their families by the ski resorts, in order to be “voted” number one. This is an annual READER’S choice award. Tens of thousands of individuals rank the resorts in 20 different categories from snow to service, terrain to grooming, challenge to character (these last two, the most important in my mind, JHMR ranked #1.) Locally we knew it was just a matter of time before the rest of the winter sports community discovered just how incredible our mountain truly is.

A quote from one of the voting readers captures JHMR and the Town of Jackson quite well, “There's no place quite like JH: there's a rowdy, go for it vibe here that I have experienced nowhere else and people dedicated to the mountain lifestyle and all that that means.” In Jackson, the mountains are our church, the weather is our god, and we never, ever work on an epic powder day.  What better way for JHMR to show its love and appreciation to such a culture then by skiing together. November 29th, 2013 has been deemed FREE SKI DAY by JHMR. Lettermen jackets make way for ski jackets as we all head to the mountain we love this season. Jerry Blann, the president of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers his thanks to the loyal visitors who have enjoyed the mountain over the years, and guarantees that the award is loved; it will not change the approach of the mountain. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was and will continue to be “independent, spirited, friendly and always customer focused.” With direct flights from 12 cities, we hope to see you out on the mountain this year, then you to will understand why we are so proud to say…

“We are the champions.

We are the champions.

No time for losers

'Cause we are the champions”

We enjoy every minute of the warm sunshine hiking our mountains, and indulging the indoor and outdoor events that fill our calendars.
