Teton Valley is a beautiful mountain community located on the west slope of the Teton Mountain Range and is sometimes refered as 'The quiet side of the Tetons' or 'The Sunny Side of the Tetons.' Teton Valley is composed of the cities of Victor, Idaho, Driggs, Idaho, Tetonia, Idaho, and Alta, Wyoming. Teton Valley is a rural, agriculture and ranching based economy shifting emphasis towards recreational tourism.
Teton Valley has a wide variety of attractions including skiing, groomed nordic trails, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, fishing, hunting, river sports, hiking, horseback riding, and Grand Teton and Yellowstone Parks next-door.
The mountains surrounding Teton Valley boast an average of 500 inches of super-light powder every winter season. Winter sports are fantastic in Teton Valley! Grand Targhee Resort offers terrain for beginner family friendly fun, terrain park features and expert-only big mountain skiing. It also offers 15km of groomed classic cross country trails and skate skiing lanes that wind through wooded glades, aspen groves, and scenic meadows. Tubing, dogsledding and horse drawn sled dinners also complete the experience at 'The Ghee.'
The area is also known for it's endless backcountry skiing and snowboarding terrain. Local backcountry guides are available to introduce those to the beauty of the backcountry while keeping clients safe in the wild terrain.
Teton Valley is a world class nordic destination and can claim 50km of groomed nordic trails in the valley thanks to Teton Valley Trails and Pathways. As mentioned Grand Targhee provides another 15k of groomed nordic trails with outstanding views.
Summer activities are equally abundant in Teton Valley and because of the additional visitors from Jackson, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks it has become increasingly vibrant with the activities and energy of a summer vacation destination.
Summer Festival over the 4th of July is four days of fun. There is a hot air balloon rally, Craft Fair, Antique show, Rodeo, Parade, Community Breakfast and BBQ, and what July 4th wouldn’t be complete without a fabulous Fireworks display! There is something for the whole family to enjoy at Summer Festival.
No one would argue that Teton Valley is becoming a hot spot for biking enthusiasts: road, cross country and downhill. There is access to over 200 miles of open trails for exploring the valley on mountain bikes and endless rolling backroads for road bikers. The trails include a wide range of difficulty levels to suit any riders preference. Grand Targhee resort also offers the thrill chairlift accessed downhill riding and miles of high altitude trails to enjoy the views of the valley.
For those who enjoy water sports the Teton River is the valleys most popular waterway for scenic rafting, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. The river flows through the heart of the valley and is a precious resource to the valley as it feeds the huge expanse of wetlands that support a rich diversity of plant and animal life. Prime wetland bird habitats have been protected in Teton Basin through the local Land Trust ensuring the continued benefits of a healthy riparian community.
Eastern Idaho and the National Parks are well know fly fishing destinations and offer ample opportunities to catch trout in some of the most scenic river corridors available to the public.
We’ve all heard fishermen talk about the good ole days, but on the Teton River it’s time to live in the present. Idaho Department of Fish and Game monitors trout populations in the Teton River by sampling two reaches in Teton Valley every two years. The most recent surveys from September 2013 yielded some astounding findings, namely record trout densities. That’s right; total trout estimates that include Yellowstone cutthroat trout, brook trout, and rainbow trout are at all-time highs for both of the monitoring reaches.
The Nickerson monitoring reach (1/2 mile from house!)is located downstream from Teton Creek had a total trout density of 2,336 trout/mile (more than 450 higher than the previous record set in 2009) while the Breckenridge monitoring reach, located near the Packsaddle bridge, set a record at 2,975 trout/mile (more than 2.5 times higher than the last record set in 1987). All three trout species have had increasing trends in abundance since record lows in 2003, including native Yellowstone cutthroat trout.
A visit to Teton Valley during the warm season wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Grand Teton and/or Yellowstone National parks. It is true that Teton Valley shares most of the natural beauty and wildlife with both parks, but there are many unique aspects of both parks that are definitely worth a visit. Grand Teton National Park is only 45-minutes from Teton Valley. The West Gate of Yellowstone is approximately 1 hr and a beautiful scenic drive through Idaho agricultural areas before climbing onto the Yellowstone Plateau.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Owners have lived in the area for 20 years. They chose the area for it's open space and recreational opportunities and to raise their family close to the some of the wildest places still left in the United States.
Why the Owner Chose Driggs, ID, USA:
This home was originally built in 1999 by the owners parents as a family retreat.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Teton Valley is a special place. There are very few mountain towns that have maintained their rural character and wildness as Teton Valley has. The pristine nature of its proximity to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks and its rich agricultural and ranching history set it apart. At the same time Teton Valley has become a well known ski town and popular summer destination for biking, hiking, flyfishing, music festivals and visiting the Parks. The City of Driggs and Victor offer a wide variety of dinning options from a classic western steak house, The Knotty Pine to the uptown feel of Teton Thai and Forage Lounge and Bistro.
