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

    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
