New to Jackson? “Frequently Asked Questions”

As an ongoing effort to show I know Jackson like I know where to find the best unpacked powder, the most risky vertical drops and most inspiring back country terrain, I’ve begun to provide resources on area neighborhoods, subdivisions and most recently–Jackson Area FAQs.

If you’re new to Jackson, it may seem that the area is just a quaint valley surrounded my mountains, scattered with open farmland and known for also being rated as THE top ski resort destinations in the US.  While all of that is true, there’s a lot one wouldn’t know without either knowing a local, or picking through a Teton-sized pile of various Jackson Hole Google search results.

Like any real estate website, you can search all active properties for sale.  Now, you can get even more of the intelligence you’re looking for and search for homes right here on my website.    Here’s a sample of some of the new FAQ’s:

  • Where and what is Teton Village?
  • How far is the nearest airport from town?
  • Where is the nearest hospital?
  • What museums are there in Jackson?

Now I’m not one to gloat, but my about me page can say I was nominated by the Teton Board as Realtor of the Year, that a local newspaper recognized me as one of the Best Realtors, or even that I’m the owner and Associate Broker for a firm affiliated with Christie’s International Real Estate that also controls a significant portion of Jackson’s marketplace but that doesn’t prove I’m an area expert.   Although my resume for real estate may be like the “staple” reputation of Atomic Skis or the popularity of the largest ski manufacturer–Rossignol, you’re going to want to learn the slopes by someone like Tommie Moe, Bodie Miller or Erik Roner.

Where’s the best skiing in the US?

Jackson Ski Lift

Author of a New York Times Bestseller and columnist for Forbes, Christopher Steiner not only ends his Forbes profile page with “I’m a skier,” but also compiled an impressive list of The Top 5 Ski Resorts in the United States.

What’s most exciting about his PAF rating of 99 (Pure Awesomeness Factor):

But the thing that separates Jackson Hole from the rest of North America’s grade-A mountains is that it has, rather impossibly, managed to retain all of its soul. This is still a place where the best skiers in the world, before skiing off of 50-foot cliffs, gulp down waffles and Budweisers inside a mountaintop shanty called Corbet’s Cabin.

Certainly one of the best reads which notes many of Jackson’s bests, such; The Tram, Steep and Deep Camp, Corbet’s Couloir, The Bridger Gondola (.jpg) and even family friendly ski training for the tots–Kids Ranch.

Here’s some good video of some daring skiers taking on Corbet’s Couloir (explicit language).

Obviously Jackson has the best skiing otherwise you wouldn’t be here, but if you’d like to challenge Christopher’s PAF score, read about the other four contenders on Forbes.
