American Airlines to Fly Year-Round to Jackson Hole

 

(September 29, 2017), Jackson Hole, WY –– It is with pleasure that the Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board, JH Air Improvement Resources Board and American Airlines announce the opportunity to provide YEAR ROUND air service to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Beginning Spring 2018, American Airlines will fly a daily CRJ700 from Dallas Fort Worth, TX to Jackson Hole, WY, complementing their A319 service during the summer and winter.

“Commercial air service is a significant factor in expanding and developing Wyoming’s economy,” said Governor Mead. “Entrepreneurs and businesses need quick access to markets and customers. Visitors want convenient access to their destination. Residents want the mobility air service provides. The addition by American Airlines of year-round service is a boon to Jackson and Wyoming. It is good news for our state.”

 

“Adding American Airlines on a year-round basis should allow locals to feel the benefits of more choice when we move into the spring/fall timeframe,” stated Mike Gierau, Chair JH AIR. “The ability to fly the smaller Regional Jet aircraft during our shoulder seasons is the key to matching a strong, but lower capacity demand,” continued Gierau.  “The Spring/Fall service (April/May and October/November/early December) will complete the year-round air service for American Airlines. We know our community has been asking for increased, year-round options, they love to travel for work and pleasure and being able to use a consistent loyalty program year round is a plus”.

 

Keely Herron, speaking on behalf of the JH Travel & Tourism Board, expressed their delight with the opportunity this may provide, for locals and for the folks trying to travel to Jackson during a time of very low air seat capacity. “Daily year-round service on American will be a big benefit to Jackson locals as well as business travelers. The Travel & Tourism Board works to help even out seasonal ebbs and flows, and we look forward to supporting American Airlines, along with each of our airline partners flying service to Jackson during the spring and fall seasons”, concluded Herron.

 

Spring and Fall service will be operated on a CR7.

Spring schedule:

Departure Depart Time        Arrival     Arrival Time
DFW 11:10 JAC 12:58
JAC 13:35 DFW 17:17

Note: Schedules are subject to change.

 

 

Jackson Hole Fly Fishing Fishtober is here!

October is  my favorite time of the years in Jackson Hole to fish.  The rivers are empty and fish are still actively feeding, and just so you don’t think I am telling you a fishing story here is some proof:

For more details on what to fish, check out the latest fishing report from Snake River Anglers.

One of my favorite excerpts from the above fishing report is: Streamer fishing is not producing consistently, and hasn’t for much of the year since runoff subsided in July. This should change in the coming weeks.

There is nothing Barbara and I love more than catching big fish on streamers. It is one of the many reasons why we live here.  Give us a call to talk about the fishing, or talk about the real estate. And check out this listing of ours, one of the premier live water properties in the valley.

Strong Demand Drives Days on Market Down

2017 inventory levels continue to stabilize across market segments.

JACKSON, WY – The past several years have seen a noticeable decline in active listings on the market for properties under $850k in Teton County, Wyoming.<.p>

Properties within this market segment have seen a corresponding decline in absorption rates as buyers looking for single-family homes and condominiums are jumping at the opportunity to own a piece of Jackson Hole. Available listings have continued to correct from a peak established in 2012 (See Figure 2) with levels normalizing within the last two years.

Inventory of listings priced between $850k and $1.5M have seen only a slight decline through seasonal averages during the same period, while listing inventory numbers in the luxury segments of the market at $3M and above have remained essentially constant.

Across the market as a whole, the average number of days-on-market is down as buyers move quickly to secure quality inventory.

With the increased desire for lifestyle-inspired home purchases and a continued need for workforce housing solutions within Teton County, the lower-priced market segment continues to see robust activity amidst tightening inventory levels.

Wyoming still has the best business tax climate in the U.S.

New Yorkers who fall in love with Wyoming’s natural beauty during visits to Jackson Hole have another reason to consider relocating. For the fifth year in a row, the Cowboy State will take the top ranking in the Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index, due out Wednesday.

Wyoming is followed closely by South Dakota and it’s easy to see why. Both states collect neither an individual nor corporate income tax. Rounding out the top five are Alaska, Florida and Nevada, which also have no income tax.

A northeasterner thinking of putting down roots in one of these friendly climes wouldn’t be the first. Providing a powerful incentive to go west, New Jersey once again finished dead last, slightly worse than 49th-ranked New York.
