Snow King Mountain and Town of Jackson

The Jackson Town Council postponed a final decision on the Snow King master plan update until its meeting Monday.

The Jackson Town Council approved a long list of amendments to Snow King’s master plan on Monday night.

But the elected officials declined to send a letter to the U.S. Forest Service expressing support for the resort’s proposals on national forest land.

Jeff Golightly, a Snow King representative, said resort officials would still talk the situation over with the Snow King Resort Master Association, an umbrella organization composed of property owners within the resort district. But the likely outcome is that SKRMA will now wait for the Bridger-Teton National Forest to move further along with its environmental impact statement before resuming negotiations with the town.

Until then, plans for Snow King’s future remain limbo. Read in-depth coverage of negotiations between the town and Snow King in Wednesday's News&Guide.
