GTNP Pumps Capital Into County

GTNP Entrance

A recent National Park Service report shows that nearly 2.7 million visitors spent over $424-million in 2010 at Grand Teton National Park and gateway communities located within 60 miles of the park. That spending, in turn, supported more than 6,300 jobs in northwestern Wyoming communities such as Jackson, Teton Village and Dubois.  According to the study, conducted by Michigan State University, most of the spending/jobs are related to lodging, and food and beverage service followed by other retail, entertainment/amusements, gas and local transportation and groceries.  The figures are based on $12-billion of direct spending by 281 million visitors in 394 national parks and nearby communities.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
