Victor, the southernmost town in Teton Valley, at the base of Teton Pass, is the largest town in Teton Valley and home to 2,500 year-round residents. The towns’ lively Main Street, dotted with restaurants, hotels and shops, is surrounded by public lands on three sides, providing easy access to world-renowned hiking, camping and backcountry skiing.
Stroll Main Street and hit the shops, grab a milkshake at the Emporium, or stop for a bite to eat at one of several fantastic restaurants.

Tucked away north of town, check out the growing Victor Makers’ District featuring artisan knife creators, local ski and snowboard makers, and a celebrated new cidery, High Point Cider. Victor has ample character and charm packed into this small-town worthy of exploring.
History: Victor was named in honor of George Victor Sherwood, a postal carrier in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, known for delivering mail by ski or horseback over the Teton Pass to Jackson Hole, an arduous journey lasting several days through dangerous stretches of Indian territory.
Local’s Favorite: Tour the fantastic breweries in Victor like long-time favorites Grand Teton Brewing and Wildlife Brewing. Don’t forget the new Highpoint Cider “Tap Room,” north of town.
