Do you know the whole story of the Jackson Hole Hill Climb? This year's 42nd-annual Jackson Hole Hill Climb is anticipated to be one of the biggest and best yet, taking place from March 23-26, 2017 in Jackson Hole. Approximately 10,000 spectators arrive to get a good view of Snow King mountain: 1,500 vertical feet of snowmobiling bliss.
With food, drinks, snowmobiling excitement, and more, it's an unforgettable time for everyone around. But how did this exciting Jackson Hole vacation tradition begin? It all started in 1964...
The Jackson Hole Snow Devils
Founded by just 14 members in 1964, the Jackson Hole Snow Devils' mission is to educate the public about winter activities and sports and to raise funds for educational and charitable purposes. And since then the volunteers and participants of the Jackson Hole Snow Devils have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars doing just that.
High marking hits the mark
In 1975, the now 20-member club in Jackson Hole had started something new and exciting. When those few local boys began high-marking a ski slope with their snowmobiles, they had no idea that over 40 years later it would become a World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb. One that locals and visitors alike wouldn't dream of missing! And one that you won't want to miss either.
See the Hole Hill Climb for yourself
When 10,000 fans come to see more than 300 snowmobile hill climb racers from all over the United States and Canada, you know it's an event that you won't want to miss. With food, concessions, live bands, vendors, an Official Hill Climb merchandise tent, and two JumboTrons televising all the action, it's sure to be an exciting time for all.
