Snow Removal on Grand Teton Park Road Now Underway

Snow Removal on Grand Teton Park Road Now UnderwayRoad crews at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming began their annual spring plowing of the Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain Lodge on April 1, 2013.

"It was a lighter snow year for the valley, and our road crews had to wait about two weeks to begin plowing (because of budget cuts)," said Jackie Skaggs, the park's public information ranger. "But crews got all the way to South Jenny Lake junction yesterday, and that's about five miles in."

Skaggs said warmer weather has been helping with the park's snow clearing efforts.

"We probably got up to about 52 degrees yesterday, and the sun is helping to melt the snow off the road," she said. "There's about two inches of ice and snow today, but it's real slushy. I would think that by Saturday, visitors can use their mountain bikes on the road, or rollerblade, or walk, because the road is not open to vehicles until May 1."

As plowing operations get underway, recreation on this winter trail will end for the season, park rangers said. Visitors may continue to use other winter trails, or areas adjacent to the Teton Park Road, for skate-skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing until conditions are no longer favorable.
