The illuminated northern face of the Snow King Mountain Resort in midwinter is often one of the first views greeting visitors to the Jackson Hole valley. The view of the illuminated slopes of the beloved “town hill” rising above Jackson serves as an inviting focal point as one drives south from the Jackson Hole Airport or northern parts of the valley.
Viewed from the south, the residential flanks of Snow King provide elevated and iconic views across the town of Jackson, the National Elk Refuge and to the Tetons beyond. With more than just great access to Snow King Mountain Resort, the adjoining hillsides provide an ideal balance of accessibility, views and a sense of privacy.
240 Pine Glades, located just off the western edge of the resort’s boundary, backs up to National Forest land and provides nearly unlimited opportunity for year-round adventure, regardless of the season. The Snow King bootpack and the iconic Exhibition ski run are merely steps away, as are the powder stashes of the Bear Cat Glades. Come summer, the hiking and mountain biking trail network surrounding Snow King and Josie’s Ridge traverse the wooded slopes just above the townhome.
Completed in 2010, this end-unit offers a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom floor plan encompassing 2,674 square feet. The open floor plan includes a chef’s kitchen and features double ovens, an 8-burner gas range and a dedicated wine refrigerator—making it ideally suited to entertaining. A north-facing wall of glass takes full advantage of the views, while stands of mature trees ensure a feeling of privacy.
The generous upstairs master suite features accordion doors overlooking the cathedral-ceilinged living space and out to the Tetons in the distance. A hillside deck extends off the master suite and is sheltered by the treed slope of Snow King above Pine Glades common space. Contemporary design accents inside balance rustic elements to create a home with a refined personality all its own. An attached two-car garage and the convenient Pine Glades Drive tunnel yields quick access to town, and ensures that the best of Jackson Hole is never more than a few moments away.
A building site currently available on the market at 845 Snow King Drive offers the ability to design your ideal home in Jackson Hole to take advantage of, “the best views found in the town of Jackson—from Crystal Butte to the Tetons,” according to Bill Van Gelder, Associate Broker at Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty. The .59-acre wooded and sloped parcel provides elevated privacy and views, coupled with close proximity to the amenities of town, as well as deeded access to nearby National Forest trail systems.
Those seeking turn-key ease of ownership need look no further than the Love Ridge Condominiums along the eastern edge of the Snow King Resort District. The resort zoning offers the rare opportunity to take advantage of an in-town, luxury investment property with a strong, short-term rental income history. Unit 361 is a bright, updated condo featuring stainless steel appliances, new furniture and impressive views characteristic of the slopeside development. It is just steps away from the resort’s Rafferty Lift, uphill travel lanes, and multi-season activities. The unit’s lock-off floor plan allows for the utmost flexibility in rental configurations, and is being offered furnished.
