Why Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole is a unique resort community with lifestyle, wildlife and real estate unmatched anywhere in the country.

There are few places in the world like Jackson Hole, places where the natural and human worlds mesh into an exceptional lifestyle. Historic national parks, stunning mountain ranges, flourishing wildlife, a lively art and dining scene, inviting tax incentives, and first-class air service are just a few of the reasons that draw visitors and new residents alike to the valley.

For the winter sports enthusiast, Teton County has three ski areas—including Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Forbes Magazine’s #1 Ski Area in North America for the 5th year in a row—as well as multiple Nordic ski complexes and opportunities for snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Grand Teton National Park’s namesake mountain range has long been a standard for professional mountaineers and amateur adventurists alike, and provides the headwaters for an anglers’ ideal network of rivers and streams.

The valley’s surrounding mountain ranges are braided with perfect hiking, biking and horseback riding trails leading to high-mountain lakes and alpine meadows where it’s not uncommon to run across animals one might only see in the far reaches of Canada and Alaska—wolves, mountain lions, bear, elk, deer, and bison.

In addition to the physical world, Jackson Hole’s cultural attractions rival those of a city many times its size.

The Grand Teton Music Festival, Center for the Arts, talented ranks of chefs and restaurateurs, boutiques and art galleries will delight the visitor who is used to finding these wonderful cultural amenities in large cities rather than in a quaint Rocky Mountain valley of 20,000 residents.

Jackson Hole is filled with residents who stopped through as visitors, fell in love, and never left. The town’s history is woven into every person you meet and the homes in which they live. To live in Jackson Hole is to become a part of a rare, one-of-a-kind place.
