GRTE Winter

While recreational visitations to Grand Teton National Park were down last month from what they were in 2012, total visitations for the year were up by five percent despite the 2 ½ weeks lost in October.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says altogether, more than 4-million-117-thousand people passed through Grand Teton’s gates in 2013.  Skaggs points out thatthe park attendance is “riding on the coattails” of the summer visitation, because October was substantially down due to the government shutdown and now December is slightly down. Skaggs says the visitation totals for the past decade have been very similar, and within the National Park System Grand Teton continues to rank among the top ten of the most visited national parks.
