The National Park Service has issued a prospectus to solicit proposals for providing guided cross-country ski touring services, including guided snowshoe tours and associated transportation and food service in Grand Teton National Park. Those tours are to be conducted on approved routes within the park. The new contracts will be valid for 10 years. Guided cross-country ski touring services are currently provided by Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Corporation, Powder Hounds, Inc. (doing business as Rendezvous Ski Tours), and The Hole Hiking Experience, Inc. These concession contracts became effective on November 1, 2003 and will expire on October 31, 2013. The Park Service considers the existing concessioners preferred offerors for the new contracts pursuant, but entertains other providers to apply none-the-less. Application packages are available from the Chief of Concessions in Grand Teton National Park.
