Jackson Hole Fire Restrictions Coming

Interagency Fire

Teton Interagency Fire Mangers became the latest in Wyoming to announce fire restrictions due to the continued drying conditions on the forest, in Grand Teton National Park and around the county.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the images we have seen from elsewhere in the Rocky Mountain Region speak for themselves.   She points out that the vegetation is so dry that any spark from a catalytic converter or a match or cigarette can quickly start a fire. Skaggs says while there is nothing that we can do about natural starts, like fires from lightning strikes, we can be more deliberate about our own human activities. Consequently, partial fire restrictions will be implemented here beginning Sunday. Those limited restrictions include lighting, building or using a campfire, barbecue or grill only in designated sites with established fire rings, smoking only in enclosed vehicles, buildings or designated parking areas and campsites, and not using a chainsaw or other equipment that might generate a spark.  Of course fireworks are never permitted on the forest, in the park or in the county.  Use of gas powered portable stoves or lanterns are still permitted when used with caution. Currently, the fire danger here is considered “high” while the danger in neighboring Yellowstone has been determined to be “very high.”

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out.
