Cliché as it sounds, it’s true: there is no place on earth like Jackson Hole. At the feet of the inimitable Teton Mountain Range, in a valley carved by the untamed forces of glaciers and rivers, this unique place attracts people from across the planet. Less than 3% of the county’s land is privately owned — the vast majority of the remainder is protected through local conservation and federal protection. Adjacent to over 22 million protected acres of wildlands, and home to a phenomenal array of Western wildlife, Jackson Hole offers life immersed in nature. Add that to one of the lowest tax rates in the nation, world-class culinary and cultural resources, and excellent educational resources — no wonder so many of us are thrilled to call this place home.
