At the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Teton Village is a bustling, intimate community. Beyond the winter and summer adventures offered by the resort are dining, shopping, and endless activities to be had here.
Before Teton Village became the base area of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it was just “Teton,” a dry, rocky area that was among the last parts of the valley to be homesteaded. Ranchers did eventually make a go of it here, raising cattle and welcoming dudes to Crystal Spring Ranch in the 1940s and ’50s. Teton Village found its true calling in the 1960s when Paul McCollister and Alex Morley envisioned the peaks above Teton Village, Apres Vous, and Rendezvous Mountains as a ski resort.
Home of the legendary Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Today the area has several hundred year-round residents (several dozen more if you count the moose and bears that move through here) and draws visitors from around the world. Often rated among the best ski resorts in North America, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has the longest continuous vertical drop in the U.S. at 4,167 feet, with runs for every level of skier and rider. McCollister and Morley’s vision has evolved into a destination resort with activities from downhill skiing to dog sledding, ice skating, mountain biking, via ferrata, hiking, and après (an activity for all seasons). When you want to indulge, there are spas, restaurants, cafes, and concerts. Teton Village is home to the Grand Teton Music Festival, which has an all-star orchestra that plays a 7-week season every summer.
