The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Escape the Crowds in Teton Valley


4. Insider’s Tip

The peak of Teton Pass is a prime spot for viewing summer thunderstorms.  

Teton Valley, set at the eastern edge of a vast high plain just west of the Teton Mountains, is home to some of the most dramatic thunderstorms you’ll ever see. In the summer, they typically happen several times a week, usually in the late afternoon or early evening. Locals head for 8,432-foot Teton Pass, a twenty-minute drive from Victor, to take in the views from the safety of their car.
