When it comes to being a snob, you’ve got all types. You’ve got your wine snobs, beer snobs, and food snobs. There are book snobs, movie snobs, and theatre (yes, with an re) snobs. These days, you’ve probably even got snob snobs—people who think their type of snob is better than yours.

Up in Wyoming, you might not think of folks as ‘snobby’ as some of the people in America’s northeast. But, they’re out there, for sure. Especially in certain areas of Wyoming, where you can call these true mountain lovers snooty – or even just plain loaded if you will, when compared to their Wyoming peers.

In fact, in these 10 places, it’s downright snobby:

  1. South Park
  2. Rafter J Ranch
  3. Hoback
  4. Wilson
  5. Ranchettes
  6. Moose Wilson Road
  7. Vista West
  8. Green River
  9. Kemmerer
  10. Jackson

Now we’re not so full of ourselves as to just come up with this list from nowhere. We actually analyzed every single place in the state. And we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with these cities.

Actually, if we had their wealth and lifestyle, we’d probably be a little snobby, too.

How we determined the snobbiest places in Wyoming

You think we’d just come up with this list willy nilly? Not a chance.

  These Are The 10 Most Ghetto Cities In Wyoming

What we did is, we gathered up all of the places in Wyoming with more than 1,000 people. This left us with a total of 58 places. Then, we looked at each place in terms of these snoot-er-iffic criteria: (And no, it’s not a word. English snob.)

  • Median home price (Higher is snobbier)
  • Median household income (Higher is snobbier)
  • Percent of population with a college degree (Higher is snobbier)
  • Private schools per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Theaters per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Art galleries per capita (Higher is snobbier)

From there, we ranked each of our 58 places in each category with scores from one to 58. We then averaged each place’s ranking into one overall score, where the lowest score went to the snobbiest place in Wyoming. So let’s all flip a table in honor of South Park (with our pinkies up, of course.)

Now before you get upset and ruin your blowout or something drastic here, let’s remember that this is all in good fun. Would we live in one of these 10 places if we had the chance? Of course we would!

Now, let’s put on your monocle and take a look at what make these places so snobby; for a more complete list, just hop down to the end of the post.

One thought on “These Are The 10 Snobbiest Places In Wyoming

  1. Something funky’s going on here. How do towns with median salaries in the five figures afford houses in the $500,000+ range? I’m wondering if the numbers are being thrown off by just a few snobs with huge salaries and outlandish homes. Does anyone know what the median salary and home price was in the town where Scrooge McDuck had his Money Bin?
