Snow King Resort

Located in the town of Jackson Hole, Snow King was the first ski resort in the state of Wyoming. The design team was challenged to reenergize the tired 200,000-square-foot hotel built in 1976. An American story, the renovation was guided by western hospitality with a strong cowboy industrial influence through blackened mill steel, hammered leather, and equine-inspired upholstery. Artisan involvement was paramount, with metal work, antler chandeliers and enlarged murals. Custom printed lobby carpet draws inspiration from old sepia toned maps, showing topographic relief of Wyoming. Guestroom carpet brings quiet warmth of a cable knit ski sweater in soft color and thick texture. Corridor carpet is a play on the elk reserve and western wilderness, tying in colors of the property and incorporating Faux Bois into the pattern to create a holistic approach to the entire site traveling from one area to the other. The customization of the project was essential to cultivate the western theme, and make guests want to kick their boots off and stay a spell.
