Hill Climbers Arrive

Hill Climb

Over 10,000 fans and more than 300 racers from around the country are converging on Jackson today through Sunday for the 38th annual Snow King Hill Climb. The objective is to raise money for local charities like St. John’s Medical Center, Teton County Youth and Family Services, the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City and the Jackson Hole Shrine Club for their support of the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.  Sponsored and run by the Jackson Hole Snow Devils, the event has steadily grown since the outset of the hill climb in 1975.  The four-day event today pits amateurs, non-professional and semi-professional racers against the hill and each other, followed by non-professional masters tomorrow, modified snow machines Saturday and the championships Sunday. Tickets are available at the gate.  The event not only generates funds for the charities, but pumps untold dollars into the local economy.

    Ruffed grouse hunters in the parts of the country where the birds are hunted heavily might flush 60 birds in one day, see six, get shots at four and come home with two. They consider that an average day. The birds are not easy to see, even when you know where they are. If you […]
