While skiing is quite the thrill and one of the biggest reasons for tourism in Jackson Hole in the winter, sometimes it can be nice to switch it up, and what better way to do so than snow tubing! Snow King Mountain is the place to do it, with three smooth groomed lanes and a “magic carpet” to get back to the top of the lanes, you will be hard pressed not to smile. A perfect activity for the whole family to take part in, so long as the kiddos are at least 42” tall. The only things you need are yourself, warm clothes and a ticket to ride.
The Tube Park
The park is located right at the base of the mountain, in the parking lot across the street from Still West, looker’s right. Tickets can either be purchased on location or online on the Snow King Mountain website. Prices are the same for all ages, with a 1 hour pass for $20, and a 2 hour pass for $30. There are also options for bundle passes, one for the Cowboy Coaster and 2 hours of tubing for $45, and the other is the Big King Pass, which includes both of those plus unlimited skiing for the day at a price of $90.
Cowboy Coaster & Skiing
The Cowboy Coaster is located on the other side of the mountain nearest to the Snow King Hotel, and is a thrilling ride through nearly a mile of loops, curves and tight turns. Skiing at “The King”, is also an incredible experience with steep slopes, 32 different runs, and a bunny hill slope equipped with magic carpet for beginner skiers and boarders, not to mention the views from the top overlooking town and across to the Teton Range (on clear days).
So if you are staying in the Town of Jackson just know that you don’t have to go very far to have some unforgettable fun in the winter!
