This weekend marks the official beginning of Jackson Hole’s summer tourist season.  As such, life will change slightly for local residents with the influx of hundreds of thousands of visitors.  Sergeant Cole Nethercott of the Jackson Police Department saysthe watch word needs to be patience.  He says there will be an increase in traffic, and with that, an increase in drivers who have never been here before and don’t always know where they’re going.  Those of who live here, he says, sometimes get in a hurry to be places sometimes.  Says Nethercott:  “The best prevention of accidents often times at this time of year is to just slow down.”  This year, even more patience and vigilance will be needed along Broadway near the intersection with Flat Creek due to traffic being limited to a single lane each direction which is causing a significant bottleneck through that area.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
