Snow King rises 1,500 vertical feet above the town of Jackson. The hill climb course follows a route that, near the summit, steepens to a nearly 45-degree angle. Hill climbers who lose it on the upper reaches of the course often tumble hundreds of feet back downhill.

  • Happens at the end of march every year.
  • One of the towns busiest events all year.
  • You can either watch from the base of Snow King or ride up the lifts for a slopeside view of the course.
