Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Backcountry Gates Closed Til Friday

by Jackson Hole Radio News

After review of the winter storm situation, a collaborative decision has been made to keep the backcountry gates at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) closed for one more day. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR), Grand Teton National Park (GTNP), Bridger Teton National Forest (BTNF) and Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) have determined that the backcountry gates will remain closed tomorrow, with the goal to re-open them on Friday, March 1.  This closure includes all gates that provide access to the Granite Canyon drainage and all gates to the south of the resort’s boundaries. Road closures, elevated avalanche danger, potential risk to rescuers, and continued weather events are all factors in this decision to close the resort exit points.
