Teton’s Plows Are Coming
Written by Kaitlyn on March 17, 2021
March 22 Spring plowing starts in Grand Teton National Park!
You know when the plows start their snow removal mission that marks the end of over-snow access on the 14 mile stretch of the park between Taggert Lake Trailhead and the Signal Mountain area. Once the plowing begins we may not enter the park for safety reasons.
Plus we do not want to get in their way. Let them get the road done so we can get away from the stress of everyday life an enjoy some well spent time with mother nature.
They will be using rotary snow removal equipment, and the they could be working during anytime of the day. As for those who ski and snow shoe in the park that use areas that are adjacent to the roadway are cautioned to avoid the arc of snow blown from the equipment. The rotary equipment can throw gravel and ice incredible distances.
According to Grand Teton National Park’s facebook.com/GrandTetonNPS they are anticipating the road to be accessible for activities such as cycling, roller skating, skateboarding, roller skiing, walking, jogging and leashed pet walking within the next few weeks.
