Overview by Dina Mishev

If you are looking for a smaller mountain or if, after a full day of skiing at Jackson or Grand Targhee, you still want more, Snow King—Jackson's town hill and the first ski resort in Wyoming—offers day and night skiing within snowball-throw distance of the town itself. Wooden skis and woolen clothes were the standard of the day when Snow King opened in downtown Jackson in 1939. Now, five lifts service 400 acres, a 1,571-foot vertical drop, and nearly 20 runs. At 55 degrees, Upper Exhibition is rumored to be the steepest in-bounds run in North America. Bill Briggs, the man who first skied the Grand Teton, heads Snow King's ski school.

The Love Ridge Resort Lodges are a fairly new entry to Jackson Hole's luxury vacation lodging scene. Offering the only luxury condominium lodging in Jackson, Love Ridge features studio to three-bedroom units. Available for nightly rental, the 2,000-square-foot condominiums boast national forest and Snow King Ski Area at their backdoor, and spectacular views of the Grand Tetons. The Jackson Town Square with all of its shopping, restaurants, and nightlife is only six blocks away.
