Looking forward to springtime of 2016, we anticipate continued growth in the market with an increase in construction. Demands for housing have driven the pricing for rentals and purchases higher than past years. Both spec building and owner building will once again command our market, but in the meantime, we continue to see steady, incremental price increases throughout the Valley.
Spring and summer in Teton Valley has always been attractive for the local and the tourist alike. The snow begins to recede and Grand Targhee closes winter operations in preparation for an expansive mountain biking, hiking, and recreational summer. The rivers and creeks begin to fill, and the birds chirping seems to breathe life back into the entire ecosystem.
As summer progresses the warm temperatures and green luscious vegetation invite the locals and visitors outdoors. Whether it be fishing or floating the Teton River, mountain biking in the Tetons or Big Holes, bird watching over the wetland areas, or hiking around our numerous trails and pathways, there’s no limit to the activities that drive you.
True to form, July is always a busy month in the Valley. Kicking off the Independence Day Celebrations with Hot Air Balloon rides, parades, fireworks and a plethora of activities, the community is buzzing from the beginning to the end of the month. The Teton Valley Tin Cup Challenge has grown in popularity every year. The 9th annual Tin Cup Challenge occurs on July 16, 2016. With a fun run and matched giving period non-profit organizations raise awareness and funds to support vital services for locals in Teton Valley. The Music on Main free weekly concerts are well underway, and a great time to socialize with friends in the lawn of the Victor City Park. Speaking of Music, the Targhee Fest in July (and Bluegrass Festival in August) at Grand Targhee are always a blast.
Capping Summer off in grand style, is not difficult in Teton Valley. There are mountain bike races, an ultra marathon in September. Yellowstone is always popular and only a short drive away. As always, plan ahead and make the most of your time in the mountains!
