Jackson Hole is one of those destinations that completely transforms from one season to the next. In winter it’s a wonderland of snow, skiing, snowboarding, and traditional seasonal comforts. In the summertime, the snow melts and it becomes an outdoor playground for those who love adrenaline-pumping sports like climbing, biking, zip lining, and hiking. We wanted to give you a glimpse into what a Jackson Hole summer has on tap by putting a spotlight on some of our favorite outdoor adventures on Snow King Mountain.
You may have seen that viral video of people sliding through the Alps surrounded by flowers and greenery. Well, now you can have a similar experience stateside with Wyoming’s Cowboy Coaster! The coaster gives you a thrilling ride through wildflower meadows with views of the Grand Tetons and plenty of loops, curves, and drops to keep your heart pumping. Start by climbing 456 feet up Snow King Mountain and then rush down four stories through beautiful landscape and scenery. This is a top pick for those looking to see the sights with minimal effort.
Jackson Hole is a renowned mountain biking destination, and with miles and miles of trails and bike parks, it’s no wonder. Mountain biking is an exhilarating way to soak in the sights of the surrounding area and get a work out at the same time! At Snow King Mountain, you’ll have plenty of routes to zig-zag up and down the mountain with trails of varying degrees, so everyone from novice to advanced can find their niche.
