JACKSON, Wyo. — Snow King Mountain will open its Cougar lift this Thursday, Dec. 23, as snow has finally made its way to the valley and more is projected in the forecast.

With the lift spinning, skiers and riders will have access to the mountain’s terrain for the first time this season.

The mountain also announced that tubing is anticipated to open on Christmas Day and additional ski terrain will open lifts for skiing/boarding as soon as conditions permit.
