Highway Crews Continue Avalanche Work

TP Avalanche

Jackson Hole is still going through the aftermath from this week’s winter storm.  Teton Pass remains closed after highway crews were forced to close it at 9:15 Thursday night.  Wyoming Department of Transportation officials report there were numerous avalanches, many which reached the road.  At least one of those avalanche paths had not run for 20 years. As yet, there is no estimate of when it will be. WYDOT closed highway 89 south of Jackson about 10:30 am to shoot an avalanche path just south of High School Road.  Fortunately, what ran there did not reach the road and the highway was quickly reopened.  Lower Valley Energy Crews spent several hours this morning restoring power to the northern end of Teton County in Grand Teton National Park.

    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.
