Pass Parking Perturbing

December 7, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
teton pass parking

The popularity of skiing Teton Pass has spawned problems that could lead to the curtailment of parking at the top of the pass.  Lieutenant Tom Kelly of the Wyoming Highway Patrol says alternatives are urged for skiers who wish to frequent the summit for skiing.  He points out that there are places on either side of the pass for parking from where skiers can share rides – which he encourages since parking at the top is very limited.  Furthermore, he says the area at the top is actually intended for snow removal equipment to have a place to turn around rather than a place to park.  Consequently, if problems of overcrowding continue up there, Kelly says there is a possibility that all parking there will be prohibited, which he says the department would like to avoid if possible.  Kelly urges those parking on top to park only in the designated areas. Kelly reminds those accessing the area for skiing need to also be watchful of traffic – especially at those times when visibility is reduced.  Pedestrians should keep as far to the right as possible, and Kelly adds that pets should be leashed so that they do not wander out into traffic.
