Roads Opening In Grand Teton

GTNP Entrance

Roads in Grand Teton National Park begin opening tomorrow, but seasonal facilities won’t be open immediately.  Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the Teton Park Road becomes the first seasonal road to open inside the park while snow is rapidly melting off other roads which will soon enable them to be opened as well.  She says roads like the Death Canyon access road, the Signal Mountain summit road, and the Moose Wilson Road will become gradually accessible by vehicle once they have melted out naturally.  Skaggs says, “We did not plow those roads this year as part of our budget reduction that we saw with sequestration.”  Skaggs says funds were allocated in such a way that most visitor centers in the park will be open this summer, albeit for fewer hours each day.  For this year only, Grand Teton Association has agreed to help fund operation of the Jenny Lake Visitor Center through revenue from their book sales; and Jackson Hole Preserve, Inc., which holds an endowment for the LSR Preserve, has established a singular grant to provide funding to operate the LSR Preserve Center in 2013. As an added attraction, Skaggs says a display of artifacts from the David T. Vernon Indian Arts collection will be put on display at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center.  She says there will display cases with pieces that have never been seen before of that collection displayed in Moose. Meanwhile, Skaggs says other facilities begin opening in the days ahead, including the Gros Ventre Campground Friday and two other campgrounds and the Colter Bay Visitor Center next week.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
