About Snow King Mountain Resort:

Snow King Mountain Resort offers six superb beginner trails and thirteen intermediate ski and snowboard runs which are distinctly separated from the expert trails, providing a secluded area generally free free of expert traffic, making the ideal ski and snowboard learning environment.  Fifteen expert trails coupled with advanced and expert tree skiing make Snow King an excellent place to be on powder days in Jackson Hole.  Snow King Mountain is also home to the steepest North facing FIS race course in the continental United States.

About Trail Creek Nordic Center:

Trail Creek is home to the Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club Nordic program, hugely successful at training Jackson Hole youth and Masters to National championship level.  The 10 mile skate and classic track runs through the Trail Creek Ranch property, and operates under the guidelines of the Betty Woosley estate and generous legacy.  Trail Creek is also home to the Moose Chase, one of the region’s best known nordic races for all ages, and annual event in February.  Trail Creek has one of the Greater Teton region’s best skate tracks, groomed daily.
