The West Bank area of Jackson Hole encompasses some of the finest Real Estate in the region of Teton County and Jackson Hole. The prices range from anywhere between 500,000 to $20,000,000 million dollars for single-family homes home sites and exclusive tracts of land. Many of the luxury properties in Jackson Hole are found on the West Bank side, named for being West of the Snake River across the bridge on the way to Wilson Wyoming.
The area has many regional nodes and subdivisions that are in a 2-mile wide path along the Front Range of the Grand Teton Mountains. The length of this strip of land is about 25 miles and follows the spontaneous path of the Snake River. The properties in many of the exclusive subdivisions are priced according to the view of the Grand Teton and any water features that may exist on the property. The West Bank runs from Red Top Meadows Subdivision on the south end to Teton Village on the North end of the strip. There is also more moderately priced Real Estate in the Aspens Racquet Club Resort ranging from 200,000 and up.
The West Bank of Jackson also features incredible wildlife corridors. It is common to see moose, elk, deer, coyotes, and foxes throughout this environmentally sensitive area. The fishing is also outstanding at the base of the front-range on the West Bank, as the insect feed for the trout is abundant in sections of these rivers and tributaries running through this area. Among the more popular streams is Fish Creek Meadows which flows from Teton Village for about 15 miles south and exits at the Crescent H Ranch. The climate and snowfall are actually a bit different on the West Bank as it tends to snow more and have milder temperatures.
The Teton Range actually shelters many of these areas from high wind which can keep the temperatures a bit more moderate. Being closer to the Teton also allows more snow to fall on this area first and then dissipate as it moves eastward. The trees are generally larger due to the high moisture content of this area. On the lowlands of the West Bank the floodplain is rated at 100 years or less. The water tables are as high as 3 feet below the surface on the valley floor and only crawl spaces can be built in these low areas. Wilson and regions south have the highest potential of flooding as they are lower than the north area of the West Bank. The dikes on the Snake River have significantly reduced flood potential over the years and many homes in low lying areas are equipped with sump pumps when water tables are high. In recent years the high country was traditionally thought of as safer, but the fire danger in heavily wooded areas have proven to be as great a challenge in this region.
Nestled at the base of the Teton Mountain Range, is the Racquet Club at the Aspens. This quiet resort community offers moderate to deluxe condominium rentals in a contemporary western fashion. These fully furnished condos include a fireplace, private deck, cable television and washer/dryer.

The RedTop Meadows is an older subdivision is in the south corridor of the West Bank Region and as of recent has received a paved county road to the town of Wilson. It is a twenty-minute scenic drive that leads back to this older remote region that was carved out in a beautiful meadow area. A few of the homes adjoin National Forest and have great access to the Bridger Teton Wilderness area. It is a favorite spot for locals as the prices are under a million dollars for homes on a bigger tract of land. The county road leads to a dirt road that meanders back to Hoback Junction but is not considered a connector road to that area and used mainly by hikers and hunters.
The Hidden Hills Ranch subdivision is a bit larger in acreage than the Red Top Meadows to the south.

Many locals bought when the price was right and the area is home to many locals. Prices here will also run between 700,000 and up for homes and occasionally a few lots that have not been developed will come on the Real Estate Market from around $400,000 and up.

The Cresent H Ranch Subdivision is an old Guest Ranch 5 miles south of Wilson has continued to be one of the most popular high-end Subdivisions in Jackson Hole. The original Ranch was set up with a Lodge, with a few log guest cabins. The first filings were similar to River Meadows and placed on the base of the Front Range in a heavily forested area consisting of smaller tracts and more modest houses for the most part. All homes must be log and western in style in this area, which is pleasantly unique. Many of these exclusive one-acre lots have filtered views at best but include the famous fishing amenities of the Snake River Tributaries below. These waters provide extremely popular fisheries in a pristine setting for the homeowners only. The old Ranch amenities have been in dispute since a bankruptcy in the late 90′s occurred. The new owner developer bought the ranch out of foreclosure and finished subdividing the exclusive larger tracts due south and east of the Lodge area. It has since turned over yet again and the newest owner may open the old Lodge and cabin facilities up again to the owners.
The larger tracts on the River are the most sought after Luxury Real Estate in the United States with prices starting at 7 million and up for property in this exclusive area. Water and Teton Views are the secret to the high pricing here. This is the ultimate sportsman property and will continue to hold strong value. The last of the lots are being developed with magnificent homes of the Rich and Famous.
