A few words on the Snow at Snow King Resort

Snow King has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 150 inches snowfall, due to its location in the town of Jackson leeward of the much higher Tetons. Snow King is best known for race training.

Accumulation and Preservation

Snow King’s early season openings are above average due to extensive snowmaking. Exposure is north, so the fairly steep manmade snow can be firm. Snow King like many resorts has its most reliable snow conditions from mid-January to mid-March.
