Jackson Hole Weekly Roundup and Winter Stoke!

Posted on Jan. 9, 2019


Happy New Year Jackson Hole!

We hope you’re as excited as we are to get into 2019 and embrace the long winter we have ahead of us. As always, we want to make sure you’re in the know when it comes to all of the kid friendly activities coming up this week. We also want to congratulate Snow King Mountain Resort for making it to 80 years of age come Friday. They've decided to celebrate with the entire town by hosting a Local's Appreciation day! There will be free skiing and snowboarding along with discounts across the mountain. We hope you'll look for us around noon at the Magic Carpet where we'll be soaking it all in. Feel free to reach out to us if there’s an event you’d like to see us feature in the future!*
