SnowKing Summer

Snow King revealed plans this week to add some new year-round recreation opportunities to the mountain. Manuel Lopez may be trying to sell Snow King’s hotel and conference center but he has no plans to sell the Town Hill. In fact, during a Town and County meeting this week Manuel and his son Sebastian unveiled plans to add several new features to Snow King mountain and its surrounding land with the goal of making Snow King a year-round destination and activities hub. Some of the features that Lopez want to add to the mountain include year-round zip-lines, some extreme and some for all ages, as well as  snow sports and mountain biking terrain parks, an amphitheater at the base of the mountain, a  mid-mountain concession and activity center and a backcountry yurt village. During his presentation Sebastian Lopez Wilson said, “Snow King has been the Town Hill for 73 years and it’s a hallmark of Jackson Hole. We need to move forward to make Snow King sustainable through modernization.” Plans should be on the ground, Manuel Lopez said, by summer 2013. – Robyn Vincent

    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
