Hike Up Snow King

Hiking Snow King is a daily event for many locals here in Jackson. The views from the top are spectacular and the hike invigorating. The climb is roughly 1500 vertical feet and the trail length is roughly 1.8 miles depending upon the route. Maps are available at the base. You will primarily follow the service road, mixed with single and double track, to the summit.

We currently are receiving new footwear for the Summer season. Come by the shop and see our selections before you hit the trail. We have an excellent selection of “light hikers” that will comfortable get you around the Tetons and your local trail systems back at home.

Upon reaching the top you can walk back to the valley floor or, as most folks do, ride the scenic chair back down for $2. On the ride down you will be seated facing the Tetons, the ride is roughly 15 minutes long. You can always take the chair to the top and scout out the short nature trail at the top if you are not looking for such a workout.

Patagonia

Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.

Teva

It's been 25 years since we took our first step into the Grand Canyon, and not a moment has gone by that Teva® (that's "teh'-vah," not "tee-vah") hasn't been hard at work developing products that enable and encourage your adventure. Of course, given our heritage, we have an obsession with water, and our passion lies in identifying and enhancing the areas in which water effects an adventure. To us, water presents a paradox. It is the source of a year-round playground, but it simultaneously poses a year-round problem. Anyone who has ever slipped on a patch of ice or been forced to deal with soaking wet socks can attest to this duality.

Vasque

In 1965 Vasque founder William D. Sweasy traveled to Europe and found our future. Outdoor recreation and mountaineering were sweeping the continent, and Sweasy knew it was a matter of time until the craze found its way stateside. He began preparing his high quality mountaineering and hiking boots so he’d be ready when the time came. After a brief run under the brand name “Voyageur,” Sweasy changed the name to Vasque in 1971 (for Fort Vasquez in the mountain mecca of Colorado). And no, the rest is not history. The Vasque trail continues today, breaking new ground toward what’s next. That’s what happens when you keep your eyes firmly focused on the trail ahead.
