While you may want to put on your best clothes to go party at Continuum Bar and Grill or The Deck, Teton Village was not always the hip enclave that it is today. Teton Village area was one of the last areas to be developed in the Jackson Hole area because of its rocky soil and tendency to get swampy. The area was known as the Crystal Springs Ranch in the early 1900s. Ken and Shirley Clatterbaugh purchased the property in 1947 and ran the Crystal Springs Girls Ranch for many years. The ranch catered to girls from Eastern states who wanted a horse-related experience in America’s West.
At the same time that John D. Rockefeller was collecting nearby land that he would later donate to Grand Teton National Park, advertising executive and San Francisco resident Paul McCollister was looking for a place to retire. After seeing it from the air, he first took a plane ride to explore the area before using special equipment to climb Rendezvous Mountain. He fell in love with skiing and purchased Crystal Spring Ranch in 1961 for $1,355 per acre. In 1976, the Jackson Hole Ski Corporation was formed, and Anneliese and Dietrich Oberrei arrived from New England and constructed the first ski lodge. McCollister and his business partner Alex Morley created the first lift and cut the ski trails. The business partners divided the former Crystal Springs Ranch into 35 commercial lots that they sold for $50,000 apiece and 123 residential lots that they sold for $10,000 apiece.
The championship races of the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup were held at this location in 1967. Many international skiers came to the event and fell in love with the skiing terrain.
