Just how many people have been visiting Grand Teton National Park this spring? This year, that is not particularly clear as old, malfunctioning equipment has recently been replaced with new, state-of-the-art counting systems and the numbers are rather skewed. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says a drop of over 33% in overall visitation is not likely to be even close. Skaggs says many of the traffic counters were replaced in November, and they are providing more accurate counts than the old ones did. Skaggs says it will be several months when the park will be able to see comparable numbers to compare. Skaggs says anyone wanting a feel of how visitation in the park fared in March, they should look at statistics from the airport and the chamber of commerce sales tax statistics. The report from the National Park Service Public Use Statistics Office reported the number of recreational visits for March down 18% from the same month in 2011.
