GTNP Begins Winter Season

GTNP Winter

Winter season also gets into full swing in Grand Teton National Park beginning this weekend.  As a feature of the season, Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says a special single day pass is available at all three entrance stations allowing visitors to enter the park for $5 per vehicle, rather than the normal $25 seven-day pass.  However, Skaggs says the special pass is park-specific and does not grant admittance to Yellowstone.  Skaggs says ranger-led snowshoe hikes begin December 26th at the Discovery Center. This 2-hour activity is offered every day at 1:30 pm, and previous experience is not necessary. Snowshoes are available for a rental fee of $5 for adults and $2 for children, 8 years or older. This year, Skaggs says there will be some monthly snowshoe hikes at Taggart Lake and also some full-moon hikes.  Information about those special hikes, she says, will be published as the winter goes on. Of course cross-country skiing and snowshoeing continue to be popular winter activities in the park. Skaggs says most trails are skier tracked, but not groomed and the Teton Park Road is intermittently groomed in winter for cross-country and skate skiing from the Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain.  As in the summertime, Skaggs says pets are permitted only along the parks plowed or unplowed roads and parking areas, and must be on a leash.

    The SuperWife and I took the kids fishing on Labor Day. Usually, going fishing on a holiday is a bad idea. There tend to be crowds just about everywhere you go. But even on a national day off, you can avoid having to share space with other anglers if you get well off the beaten […]
  • Don’t let snakes ruin your Labor Day - September 1, 2014
    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]

  • Warmer Temperatures With Isolated Thunderstorms Expected Today - August 29, 2014
