Staying refreshed year after year is one of the benefits of investing wisely in this rare Wyoming setting. As outdoor aficionados, Spackmans & Associates recognize that each property owner in Jackson Hole finds a distinctive way to feel at home.
A prime piece of Jackson Hole real estate is the first step to ultimate comfort for distinguished homebuyers in this expanse of pristine Grand Teton wilderness. The outdoors is reflected in every aspect of the Jackson Hole lifestyle. Developing a unique passion for this place is what makes Jackson Hole residents experts of their domain. Just as a view of the Tetons from a picture window never grows old, so too trails, fly-fishing streams, and t-times offer year round sources of pleasure and rejuvenation.
With a total of 97% of the valley protected as open space, including Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and the Bridger-Teton, Shoshone, and Caribou National Forests, our Jackson Hole property listings on the MLS imply a full range of opportunities. Envisioning a life here is natural whether that includes a Jackson Hole ski property, golf property, or a well-designed home recreation room. As discerning brokers, we are your guides to Jackson Hole, and as a first step we offer the following taste of this lifestyle to assist our clients.
Jackson Hole real estate is synonymous with skiing for many full-time residents as well as home buyers and sellers who take their ski vacations seriously. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort invites all levels of skiers and snowboarders to partake – along with the Olympic athletes training here – in an average 459 inches of snow each year. Steep glades flank wide open bowls, Nordic tracks wind through the valley, and terrain for all kinds of winter enthusiasts comes with a plethora of mountainside amenities – from world-class spas to down-home après ski cocktails. In addition to the 4,139 vertical feet at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, there is also Snow King Resort just blocks from the town square and Grand Targhee Resort on the west side of the Tetons. With a Jackson Hole ski property the winter lifestyle may include the vertical thrill of helicopter skiing, the enduring rewards of backcountry exploration, and the quiet of a cross-country snowshoe through Grand Teton National Park. No matter the gear, it’s all within reach of home.
Golf is another way Spackmans & Associates distinguish themselves as both realtors and guides, having continually put buyers and sellers on course to the right investment. We realize that golfing is a fundamental way to experience the vast open spaces of Wyoming and even Idaho. Membership at Teton Pines Resort and Country Club means long drives on an Audubon Certified Arnold Palmer course. Multi-million dollar upgrades, including a LEED certified clubhouse and the Robert Trent-Jones II designed course make real estate near Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis a must-have for many of our serious buyers. Jackson Hole properties at 3 Creek Ranch provide golfers with a completely private Rees Jones designed course. Located at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is Shooting Star Jackson Hole—a Tom Fazio designed golf course and private club.
More chances to practice a tennis and golf swing are within easy reach of any Jackson Hole property. Developments such as The Links, Teton Springs Resort, Rim River Ranches, Teton Reserve, and Huntsman Springs offer a diversity of greens just 20 and 30 minutes from a Jackson Hole property.
The Tetons have beckoned to climbers since the late 1800s and this area continues to celebrate the early adventurers who made first ascents of the towering Teton peaks. The climbing culture here distinguishes itself year after year and guides are among the best in the world, making the Grand Teton accessible to novices and enthusiasts alike. Hard core rock climbers have found Jackson Hole as the natural playground to test their skills and their edge on a range of features from Grand Teton National Park down through Snake River Canyon. The culture itself lends a certain enduring reverence toward rock and rugged terrain in this place that some people are fortunate enough to call home.
Boating and Fishing
The Snake River courses through Yellowstone National Park to the Snake River Canyon on its way to the Pacific Ocean, providing residents with all varieties of recreation. In some spots, especially in Grand Teton National Park, the waters meander offering a summer’s worth of canoe and scenic float experiences rife with wildlife spotting. Kayakers and whitewater aficionados put in at the more southern reaches of the river to ride class four rapids along the canyon.
Perhaps the most notable feature of the Snake River and its tributaries, as they twist through some of the premier live water property listings, is the prized Snake River spotted cutthroat trout. Anglers come from far and near to test their fly-fishing skills and discover secret pools of rainbow, golden, and cutthroat. Developing a native understanding of this renowned anglers’ paradise is the optimal way to explore the mountain lakes and rivers which stretch south to the Green River and South Fork, west into Idaho, and east past Flat Creek and even to the Wind River.
