Winter Season Begins In GTNP

GTNP Winter

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s winter in Jackson Hole.  As such, winter season activities are slated to get under way in Grand Teton National park beginning Sunday.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says as a cost saving measure this year, the Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center will be closed until April 7th.  An alternative for winter visitor information about the greater Jackson Hole area is the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center on North Cache Street in Jackson, which is open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Teton Park Road becomes a designated trail in winter and is intermittently groomed for cross-country and skate skiing from the Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain. Dog sleds or snow machines are not allowed on the Teton Park Road and dog sleds are not permitted on Grassy Lake Road on the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway. Snowmobilers may use the Grassy Lake Road and may be on the frozen surface of Jackson Lake only for the purposes of ice fishing if they have a best available technology machine.  Backcountry users and mountaineers planning to stay overnight in the backcountry must get a camping permit before their trip at the front desk of the park’s headquarters building in Moose which is open between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate. There were rumors last year that Enzi would retire at the end of his current term and he admits it is something he thought about. “Anytime anybody’s getting ready to go […]
  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
