Summer Activities at Snow King Mountain Open!
Although the snow has seemed to linger a little longer than normal on the valley floors in Jackson Hole, summer is on its way. The mountains may keep their white blanket on for warmth for time to come, but that won’t stop us from finding ways to convince ourselves that it is summer in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This past weekend, Memorial Day weekend, marked the official open date for many seasonal businesses as well as summer activities. Snow King Resort opened the mountain for its summer season with activities like Alpine Mini Golf, the Alpine Slide, and Scenic Chairlift rides.
Alpine Mini Golf is located at the base of the beginner hill on Snow King Mountain and a great spur-of-the-moment activity, as well as a fun way to entertain the WHOLE family.
Many locals make their way to the Alpine Slide at least once a summer. It is a thrill of a lifetime and not available in many places. Definitely take advantage of this fun and exhilarating activity while in Jackson Hole. The slide winds its way down the lower half of Snow King Mountain through groves of trees and wildflower meadows. You can go as fast or as slow as you want, controlling your speed with a hand brake. One time, 5-ride, or unlimited day passes are available.
Last but certainly not least, the Scenic Chairlift is a great way to start a vacation to Jackson Hole. From the top of Snow King Mountain you can overlook downtown Jackson Hole, the National Elk Refuge, the Snake River Mountain Range, as well as the beautiful Teton Mountain Range and Grand Teton National Park.
