When you visit Jackson Wyoming, you should ski Snow King just to complete the Teton Trifecta. Snow King is, after all, the original Jackson Wyoming ski resort, started in 1939 – decades before Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. This humble but steep hill is located right in the town of Jackson, just six blocks from Town Square and the Elk Arches. Skiing down Snow King’s slopes is akin to Aspen or Telluride with the town view at your ski tips.
