Skin the King to win

JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson locals know that “skinning the King” is an amazing way to ski and stay fit. But what many don’t know, is endorphins aren’t the only prize for your hard work. Scan your Uphill Pass at the base and the scanning stations on mountain to accumulate points for vertical, frequency, and time. Each month, winners and one lucky participant will be awarded special prizes from Stio and Snow King.

This Friday, January 3, join Stio, Roadhouse Brewery, and Snow King for a group skin followed by Loose Boots Apres beverages and an award ceremony for prizes from December. Meet at the bottom of the Summit Lift at 4:30 p.m. to join in the fun.

How it works: 

Uphill pass and season pass holders are able to scan their passes at the base of the Summit Lift or Rafferty Lift and then scan them at the top point they reach on the mountain. Scan stations are indicated with the red stars on the uphill map and the vertical feet and times from your climb can be seen here.

As skiers or boot packers climb the mountain they can scan their passes at either the mid-mountain pump house, the saddle or the panorama house. Their times and vertical feet climbed are logged on each journey.
