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.

I was a little fella once, and I remember counting down the days until December 25th. There were no visions of sugarplums, but pocket knives, snowshoes, shotguns […]
  • Happy Thanksgiving, Wyoming! - November 27, 2014
    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
  • Very Windy in Many Areas, Developing Light to Moderate Snow - November 25, 2014

Light to moderate snow shower activity will also be increasing […]
