Spring plowing will begin in Grand Teton National Park next Monday. The plowing operations mark the end of over-snow access on the 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake Trailhead and the Signal Mountain area. For safety reasons, visitors may not access the Teton Park Road once the plowing operations are underway.
Skiers and those on snowshoes using areas adjacent to the roadway are cautioned to avoid the arc of snow blown from the rotary equipment because pieces of ice and gravel can be thrown great distances at a high velocity. Once the road is cleared of snow and ice, it will be opened on April first for activities like cycling, roller skating, skateboarding, roller skiing, walking, jogging and leashed pet walking.
There may be such non-motorized access from Taggart Lake Trailhead to the Jenny Lake parking area earlier, if conditions allow. The Teton Park Road will open to motor vehicles May 1st.
