Summer in Jackson Hole
Summer is green hills, blue skies, long days spent on rugged trails, and longer evenings spent laughing with the ones you love. Though Jackson Hole welcomes the snowy season the way only a mountain town can, there’s something uniquely sweet about spending summer at high elevation.
Snow King Hotel is your personal gateway to the great outdoors and hot spots around town. During your stay, be sure to ask our concierge for directions to local favorites and off-the-beaten path experiences.
Grand Teton National Park sits in Jackson's backyard. Discover the park's spectacular wilderness studded with lakes, trails, and wildlife. Venture a little further into expansive Yellowstone, which coveres 3,500 square miles of one of the nation's most alive lands.
JACKSON HOLE WITH KIDS
There’s something uniquely sweet about the first few flowers that peek through the melting snow. Summer is at its best in Jackson Hole and there’s no shortage of things to do with kids in Jackson Hole.
Jackson Hole is at the heart of national park country. The Grand Tetons rise just north of the resort, while Yellowstone unravels across nearly 3,500-square miles of our corner of northwestern Wyoming. Views of the Tetons and scenic drives through national parks and forests are all part of a typical day during a Jackson Hole summer.
But the parks are just the beginning. Test your fly fishing skills. Bike down mountainsides. Raft local rivers. Hike through national parks. Or sit in the stands for the Jackson Hole Rodeo. It's all in a summer at Snow King.
Snow King Mountain
No matter how you define “play,” Snow King Mountain has you covered. Snow King Mountain offers exciting activities such as the Treetop Adventure Park, Cowboy Coaster, Alpine Slide, and Scenic Chairlift.
Fish on your own or join our award-winning fly fishing instructor for fishing classes, held every Monday and Thursday on the Casting Lawn. Take your newfound skills to the local lakes and rivers.
Summer is a season to explore. With snow off the trails and the sun high in the sky, there's nothing between you and your soon-to-be favorite trail. In Jackson Hole, you can head off to a nearby national park or choose a trail close to the lodge.
The waterways of the West offer a full menu of choices from a guided wildlife-viewing raft trip at sunset in Grand Teton National Park to whitewater thrills on the twists and turns of the Snake River.
No vacation to Jackson would be complete without experiencing the rodeo firsthand. Jackson’s rodeo grounds are a ten-minute walk from Snow King, and the lassos fly every Wednesday and Saturday.
A few running steps and you are airborne, free to enjoy the awesome scenery and refreshing mountain air under the expert guidance of Jackson Hole Paragliding Tandem Instructors.
