Moving to Jackson Hole

Hey all, I just accepted a position in Jackson Hole and was able to secure a house in Colter Bay (I know, just about as far north as one can live in the valley). I am interested to know if anyone on here is up in that area.

I probably will be moving up there middle to end of next month.

oddly enough it was still the latest post in the Wyoming section before I replied to it.

Yep, I have been here a year now, long enough to get hunt tags as a resident, it is absolutely gorgeous here. I fear I may have made a mistake as my wife probably won't want to move again...

Haha I know I wouldn't want to living out there. Love the price of resident hunting tags. I do a lot of elk hunting in that part of the state. Just east of yellowstone.

Yeah, 1/10th the price of non resident is nice. I actually put in for Elk, Deer, and Antelope, but my 1 year of residency was not until after the cutoff for Bison. here's hoping I get drawn for something.

Where I live there is a weird mix of having 500+ people living almost right next door all summer to about 10 families within 5 miles in the winter. Extremes for sure, but atleast the summer temps aren't 105+ and the winter temps down to -30 is doable, just plan ahead.

biggest thing i remember about how damn cold it gets there is durring a real cold snap by local standards we were sjiing and i had to get a face gator to keep my face from freezing and when i stopped to pee in the woods....it froze into little rods before hitting the ground!
that and almost hitting a moose that charged out of the woods as i was flying by at about 45 mph on skis. seriously my legs were under its head as i turned! scared the hell outta me

oh and there is a burger place in town that cuts off ties if you wear one. ( always looked for a cheap wacky tie to wear in there, and serves great burgers.
after skipping breakfast and skiing all day me and a buddy were the first to eat two of the things ... serious gluttony involved there.

I have not found that burger place yet, but the moose do love to run out of the woods at the most in-opportune time.

As for cold, yeah... I was actually concerned about if my truck would like to start at -45, but plugged in with a winter front on it was just fine. I may look to put a heating pad on the trans to help reduce the wonky shifts for the first few miles at that temp too.

I was amazed that where I am living for months i am not driving on asphalt, but rather on packed snow, so that was a learning experience.

yea I moved to squaw from the beach and driving on snow and not seeing dirt or asphault for months at a time took some getting used to.
best advice. always leave WAY more room between you and anyone who gets in front of you and when it gets icy never drive faster than you are willing to crash
