Visitor Center Closed For Winter

Craig Thomas CenterEven though Grand Teton National Park has begun its winter season this week, the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center will not be open once again this winter. The center closed during the winter season for the first time last year as a cost-saving measure.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says, “One of the things we looked at among many things was the cost of running the Discovery Center during a time when we have the least amount of visitors.”  She says the winter months are the lowest visitation time and it is a very costly building to run when you consider heating and plowing the roads and walkways around it. Then, she says there is the consideration of staffing the building with NPS personnel.  Skaggs says a cost/benefit analysis done at the conclusion of this winter closure indicated the action was in the park’s best interest.
