Snow King Mountain eyes Memorial Day opening for summer

JACKSON, Wyo. — Snow King Mountain this week announced it will get back to business for the season beginning Saturday, May 23. The reopening will include most of the mountain’s summer amenities with allowances for public health guidelines.

“Our leadership team has been working diligently to develop a summer operations plan that follows state and local health guidelines as well as industry standards,” said GM Ryan Stanley. “We are focused on finding the right balance to recreate safely in this new environment and are planning a phase opening of activities with a wide range of COVID safety precautions.”

Beginning Saturday, May 23, the Cowboy Coaster, Summit Scenic Lift, Mini Golf, and Amaze’n Maze will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Treetop Adventure ropes course and zip-lines will be open weekends only by reservation with limited harnessing times and group sizes. Private harnessing times will be available to small groups for a premium price on weekdays and in addition to set weekend time slots.

The Kings Grill will be open for the purchase of prepackaged snacks and drinks with limited indoor seating. Snow King Mountain Sports in the Snow King Hotel will be open for rentals of a wide variety of bikes, stand-up paddle boards, and kids kayaks.

This summer, Snow King Mountain will also be offering a variety of guided hiking experiences for small groups.

At this time, reopening will not include Alpine Slide and bungee trampoline. They will remain closed until June 13.

To mitigate the risks of exposure to the COVID virus, social distancing measures will be enforced via signage and spacing of participants on attractions. Employees with close proximity to guests will be wearing masks, physical barriers will be in place in high-contact areas such as ticketing.

To further reduce contact, visitors are encouraged to buy tickets and sign waivers in advance online. It is recommended that guests bring their own mask to wear in case social distancing is not possible.

Handwashing and/or hand sanitizer will be available at the entry and exit of each activity, and to start, food and beverage will be limited to pre-packaged snacks and drinks.

Access to indoor spaces will follow local health department guidelines. Frequent sanitization of all high-touch man-made surfaces and safety gear will occur throughout the day.

“We look forward to safely welcoming guests back to Snow King Mountain to play in our beautiful summer playground with family and friends. We ask that all of our guests do their part to recreate responsibility and follow government and health recommendations while visiting Snow King Mountain and Jackson Hole,” Stanley added.
