A patchwork of the protected national parks, national forests, and conservation easement land, Jackson Hole is a rare place, indeed. Only 3% of its lands are privately owned and developed. The lucky few who call the valley home find themselves perched directly within the vast Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, which represents one of the last, and largest, intact ecosystems in the temperate zone.
The Tetons’ dramatic and iconic shape is known as a “fault block.” It was created 10 million years ago as igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rock rose upwards while the valley of Jackson Hole sank simultaneously. An early champion of the area, President Theodore Roosevelt, remarked that these are “what mountains are supposed to look like."
Jackson Hole is also a gateway to Yellowstone National Park, the nation’s first National Park. It is surrounded by the Bridger-Teton National Forest as well as other mountain ranges, including the Gros Ventre and Wyoming Ranges. The Snake River, a pristine recreational haven, threads through the valley and is designated as a Wild and Scenic River by Congress. Within a short drive, alpine hiking, skiing, fly fishing, boating, and unlimited wildlife viewing make every day a new opportunity.
In its combination of gentle and sharp, lush and arid, ranchlands and resort sophistication, Jackson Hole is a place that defies words.
The Jackson Hole lifestyle is shaped by the extraordinary landscape. Here, one can truly have it all: boundless outdoor space and views for miles without sacrificing the cosmopolitan culture and aesthetic of urban centers. The valley is more than a resort town. It’s an eclectic place where western culture meets forward-thinking architects, artists, and extreme athletes.
Whether you’re dining out in downtown Jackson or at one of Teton Village’s many award-winning eateries, Jackson Hole chefs are on the vanguard of creative and contemporary mountain cuisine. From sushi to relaxed breweries to five-star dining, every palate is accommodated.
A vibrant community offers a stimulating platform for artistic innovation and creativity. With live music venues and a plethora of touring acts, Jackson Hole offers an event for every day of the year.
