Forty hours after it closed on Thursday, Teton Pass has been reopened after pretty-much round-the-clock work by highway crews. Altogether, a Wyoming Department of Highways spokesman says there were 12 major snow slides over two days, and he estimates there were another 20 minor slides. While crews have conducted considerable avalanche control, the snow on slopes above the road is still unstable. There are concerns that slides could be easily set off by skiers who may enter the area. The avalanche danger in the region continues to be rated “high” and forest and weather officials are discouraging any travel in avalanche-prone areas by back-country travelers. This includes, but is not limited to the Teton Pass area.
