Additional Information Neil Rafferty (1909-1995) arrived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and founded the Snow King ski area at Jackson, Wyoming, in 1939. Neil also was a pioneer in the field of Ski Patrol, and patrolled at Snow King for many years. With Neil's support, the Jackson Hole Ski Club was able to host numerous important ski races during the 1940's, 50's and 60's. He established Snow King as a reliable venue for ski racing... During the 1950's and early 60's Neil also ran early season ski operations on Teton Pass and Togwotee Pass.
