Teton Valley, Idaho, is Jackson Hole’s sister community, located just a scenic drive over Teton Pass in the eastern part of Idaho.
It’s home to stunning natural beauty, world-class outdoor recreation, and a vibrant local community. Teton Valley is the perfect day trip for those looking to dip their toes into Idaho and experience the west side of the Tetons.
Victor and Driggs are renowned for their outdoor access, including hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, and fishing. The Teton Range provides breathtaking scenery for hiking and mountain biking, with trails ranging from beginner to advanced stemming out of Darby Canyon and Teton Canyon.
Grand Targhee Resort is the area’s premier ski and snowboarding destination, with over 2,500 acres of skiable terrain and endless mountain biking options, from grueling uphill climbs to flowy lift-access downhill to flat introductory trails.
A paved bike path connecting the towns of Victor and Driggs provides a leisurely road bike ride; just rent a bike from Fitzgerald’s Bicycles and immediately pop onto the path for a car-free cruise.
The Teton River is an excellent spot for fly fishing, with rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout being the most commonly caught species, and a popular spot to cool off on a hot day with a scenic float.
