On the west side of Teton Pass, a mere 30 miles from Jackson, WY, you will find the quiet Teton Valley of Idaho.
Teton Valley lies along the eastern border of Idaho snug against the 13,000' peaks of the Grand Teton range. The communities of Driggs, Victor, Tetonia and others share the Teton Mountain Range with the neighboring valley to the east, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Folks describe Teton Valley as "the quiet side of the Tetons."
The jagged, snow-capped Tetons to the east and the rolling Big Hole Mountains to the west cradle the gentle, flat course of the Teton River. Old farmsteads scattered across the valley floor contradict beautiful new homes along the foothills. Our population is a diverse mix of pioneer families and recently arrived residents from around the country, and world.
Take Wyoming Highway 22 west toward Teton Pass. After you go over the pass and approach the western side of the mountain range, the road designation turns to Idaho Highway 33.
