With the passage of the law legalizing hitchhiking in Wyoming now, a popular mechanism for controlling the amount of parking needed on the top of Teton Pass is now more feasible. Pass Ambassador Jay Pistono says, however, common sense still needs to be exercised by those seeking a ride to the top. Among the familiar cautions are to be sure you are as visible as possible to traffic and the car picking you up is as far to the side as possible, and also to observe the ban on hitchhiking in an avalanche zone. Pistono says additionally, those who are along the road should seek ways to make themselves more visible – especially to highway maintenance crews – when weather or light conditions aren’t the best. He suggests using bright colored clothing and possibly attaching a light like you would have on a bicycle at the top of the skis you are carrying. Pistono also reminds those walking along the road to always walk facing traffic, and stand up on the berm and out of traffic when waiting for a ride.
