Visiting Jackson Hole, Wyoming is an incredible experience for the wilderness alone, but with a stay at Snow King Resort, you’ll also get to interact with the knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Every so often we like to highlight one of our team members and find out what they most enjoy about Jackson. Since she’s only lived in Jackson for one year, we decided to see what Caralyn Ross, the Conference Services Manager at Snow King, enjoys about the summer season. Jackson Hole is transitioning out of winter sports mode and into summer adventure mode!

Caralyn, how long have you lived in Jackson Hole? What are a few aspects of living in Jackson Hole that you enjoy the most?

“I have lived in Jackson Hole for close to a year now. I love being able to bike to work and the abundance of hiking available in the area.”

Which summertime activities are you looking forward to most?

Hiking and Camping! I am an avid backpacker, and I enjoy hiking into the backcountry and exploring the wildlife of Wyoming.”

Aside from hiking, camping, and backpacking, what else do you enjoy doing?

Besides spending my time hiking in the parks, I love to grab some burgers on the deck of The Bird just in time for sunset. Also, the Figure 8 race is so fun and unique.”

Would you recommend these activities to guests at Snow King? What else do you recommend to visitors?

“Yes, I would recommend both the Figure 8 Race and The Bird. I would also suggest going to see Jenny Lake; you can kayak and take the scenic boat ride across the lake.”  

What is your role at Snow King Resort? How long have you been in this role?

“I am the Conference Services Manager at Snow King. I have been in this role for about a year.”

For those visiting Jackson Hole in the summertime, what do you hope they take away from the experience?

“Just to stay wild. Come to Jackson and create one of a kind experiences that only Jackson can offer.”

What advice, if any, do you have for people considering taking a trip to Jackson this summer?

“I would suggest drinking a lot of water. The altitude can affect people in different ways and staying hydrated always helps.”

Thank you, Caralyn, for taking the time to chat with us! It’s been a pleasure getting to know you more, and we’re so glad you’ve chosen Jackson as your home!
