Crews Begin Clearing Teton Park Road

GTNP Plow

Crews from Grand Teton National Park begin clearing the Teton Park Road from the Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain Lodge today.  Park crews anticipate that with the low snowpack on the road, they will be able to have the road opened by its traditional opening date despite beginning the plowing operation two weeks later.  Meanwhile, winter recreation along the road is done for the season. Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs also points out that as plowing operations are underway, park visitors should not access the Teton Park Road as the output of the rotary plows can be dangerous.  Other roads in the park will NOT be plowed, but allowed to melt out naturally.  Those roads include the Moose/Wilson Road, Antelope Flats Road, Death Canyon access, and Signal Mountain Summit Road.  As usual, the Grassy Lake Road will open for the season when it melts out naturally.  Park entrance stations are also open for the season and will be checking for park passes and selling 7-day permits for those who do not have passes.

    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 […]
