Jackson Hole Land and Cattle

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

There are few places in North America that have all Jackson Hole has to offer. Remarkable scenery, abundant wildlife, a plethora of recreational opportunities, a lively arts scene, unmatched tax advantages, and a convenient airport are the most apparent reasons.

Within its boundaries, Teton County is home to Grand Teton National Park, three ski resorts, museums, a multitude of art galleries, and four exquisite golf courses. Lakes, rivers and streams offer opportunities for rafting, fly-fishing, kayaking and paddle surfing. The National Forest and other public lands cater to every level of hiking and mountain biking ability through its vast system of trails. Parasailers soar through the air from the surrounding mountain tops as climbers summit their peaks.

Culture

In more recent years, Jackson Hole has become increasingly known for its happening nightlife, cultural activities and metropolitan amenities. Now, after a day of skiing or a hike in the mountains, you can grab a burger at the Brew Pub or a filet mignon at the Snake River Grill. Or you can unwind with a calming treatment at one of the many luxurious spas. Some may find two-steppin’ at the Cowboy Bar or gettin’ down with a reggae band at the Mangy Moose the best way to spend the evenings. And, the Grand Teton Music Festival at Teton Village features a summer full of symphonies, lectures and children’s events.

In addition to attracting more visitors, Jackson Hole is attracting more new residents. People are migrating to this community because of our serene Rocky Mountain location and the daily commercial airline services, and also because Wyoming has been rated the most tax-friendly state in the nation. But, being a resident of the Cowboy State offers more than just monetary advantages. Wyoming also has one of the lowest unemployment rates, is rich in agriculture and natural resources, and is one of the least populated states making the crime rate extremely low. These attributes have helped shape our community and our growing real estate values.

Land Conservation

More than 97 percent of Teton County is permanently protected from development in national parks, forest and public lands. Much of the private acreage is also protected in conservation programs through organizations such as the Jackson Hole Land Trust. These efforts ensure that the stunning scenic corridors, open space and wildlife migration patterns will remain protected for generations to come.

Because only 3 percent of the county’s land can be privately owned and interest in owning property in Jackson Hole has heightened, real estate has become scarcer while the demand has become greater. No one can predict the future, but it seems almost certain that Jackson Hole will continue to retain the character that has attracted settlers since the early 1900s.
