Jackson Hole Skiing
Jackson Hole Skiing Has Come a Long Way, Baby
Starting in the 1930s, skiing in Jackson Hole became more of a recreational sport instead of the essential mode of transportation that skiing and snowshoeing once was. Skiing in Jackson Hole has come a long way since the days when skiers wearing 10-foot long skis would grab hold of a stick on a rope tow to get to the top of Ruth Hannah Simms Ski Hill, now known around the world as Snow King.
Though Snow King was the first ski resort in the Jackson Hole area and continues today to be an instant sensation with the locals and tourists for winter amusement, today’s Jackson Hole residents and tourists have world-class skiing in their own backyards at Jackson Hole’s famous ski resorts- Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Grand Targhee Ski Resort. And if you tire of shredding or swooshing down the slopes then give snowshoeing, backcountry hiking, snowmobiling, dog sledding or sleigh rides a go.
