Jackson Hole is an exceptionally unique place in many ways. As part of the largest intact ecosystem in the lower 48 states, our valley offers nearly 1.2M acres of designated wilderness, over 30,000 miles of roads and trails and thousands of miles of unspoiled rivers and streams. Our scenery is spectacular and destined to stay that way. Less than 3% of the land in Jackson Hole is privately owned. The remaining 97% is protected, for we are surrounded by National Forest lands, Jackson Hole Land Trust holdings and two National Parks.
These parks are home to a large variety of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, moose, bison & elk. Our scenic corridors, trail systems, bike paths into National Forest lands, abundant streams, and rivers will remain protected. They are available for our use for downhill/cross country skiing, hiking, biking, white-water rafting, boating & fly fishing.
Another important aspect which is quite compelling, is that we have no state income tax, no state capital gains tax, no inheritance tax, no estate tax, no gift tax or intangibles tax and very beneficial state laws regarding the creation of trusts, including dynasty trusts. Therefore, many people designate their Jackson Hole home, at some time during ownership, as their primary residence for very significant tax savings on the state tax level.
Culturally, Jackson Hole boasts a multitude of artistic organizations. The Center for the Arts is a 41,000 sq. ft. center with a theatre, music classes and rehearsal space.

The Grand Teton Music Festival has just celebrated its 60th year and has inspired countless audiences with world class concerts by the nation's finest orchestra players. The National Museum of Wildlife Art is especially unique, distinguished by its mission and location. Situated just outside of the town of Jackson, the museum overlooks the 20,000 acre National Elk Refuge and is en-route to Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks. There are also approximately 40 art galleries in Jackson Hole, featuring the best of Western & Contemporary Art.
The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is legendary with 2,500 acres of inbound terrain and an average of 459 inches of snowfall each winter. Forbes Magazine has ranked the ski resort #1 in North America for the seventh year running, which is a great honor, as Forbes takes into consideration the entire resort experience from terrain and snowfall to lifts and ease of access.
