GTNP Inks Agreement With Teton County Parks

Park Road Skiing

Grand Teton National Park has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Teton County to provide regular grooming for Nordic and skate skiing along the Teton Park Road in partnership with the Grand Teton National Park Foundation. As an extension of community grooming activities outside the park, Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says Teton County has agreed to pilot a program to groom 15 miles of the snow-covered Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge.  Skaggs says the arrangement is just one more example of the spirit of cooperation the park and the local community enjoy. She says this area is held up as a prime example, or elevated example  nationally of inter-agency cooperation.  She points to the inter-agency dispatch center and intera-gency fire-fighting arrangements with Bridger-Teton National Forest and Teton County as two examples.  Consequently, she says, “We are held to kind of a high example of what can be done.” Skaggs says since 2002, park staff has periodically groomed the snow-covered Teton Park Road whenever time and funding allowed. However, financial and staffing constraints have increasingly constrained the grooming from dependably occurring.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
