​What’s New at Snow King For Winter 2022?

2022 ushered in a new era for our local town hill: Snow King! We’re stoked to see that Jackson’s hidden gem (and Wyoming’s oldest ski resort) got a few upgrades this year, including a shiny new gondola on the front side as well as some serious terrain expansion with a new chairlift on the backside. And you know what the best part is? All these fancy upgrades aren’t killing the laid-back vibe the mountain is known for, and that’s just the way we like it.

Following over five years of public input and review and a comprehensive environmental analysis, this past summer saw some serious construction projects go down to get the mountain ready for the winter. Looking up from Jackson’s Town Square, a new bright blue eight-passenger gondola rises nearly 1600 feet to the summit, replacing the aging and painfully slow Summit chair lift. We’ll miss you, Summit Chair, but have to say the new Gondola is SWEET! The front side features a few new advanced and expert runs – test your skills on the steeps like Upper Exhibition and Yeti, or cruise down the groomed face of Elk. If you’re looking for fresh snow, duck into the trees next to Wolverine or Belly Roll to score some faceshots on a pow day, or drop off the top into Yeti (newly cut for 2022) or the super steep S chutes for some of the steepest skiing in town.

Up top, two new magic carpets provide access to an excellent low angle beginner area complete with stunning views across all of Teton Valley including the Grand Teton, Teton Pass and the Snake River Canyon. We’ll wager that it’s one of the most beautiful places to learn how to ski.

Finally, what you can’t see from town is the resort’s newest terrain addition: an entire south-facing bowl of intermediate groomers and tree runs serviced by the Sunnyside Triple Chair. Lap the groomers in Sun Bowl or duck into the trees above the chairlift for a surefire good time in soft snow on a sunny day.

The Gondola and Sunnyside Lift run until 4 p.m. daily, with night skiing on the lower mountain from 4-6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Tubing and the Cowboy Coaster are also open daily. Tickets are available online or at the base ticket office. Visit snowkingmountain.com for more information!
