Grand Teton National Park Open For Winter Season

Winter season in Jackson Hole means more than just skiing at the resorts. We also have wonderful winter access to public lands, including Grand Teton National Park. Whether you’re interested in peak-bagging and skiing some fantastic alpine lines or just getting out and about for some kicking and gliding or snowshoeing, “the park,” as its known to locals, offers a great variety. As of Wednesday, December 19, Grand Teton National Park is officially open for the winter season. Backcountry skiing and snowboarding are allowed throughout the park, except in winter wildlife closure areas. You can find out about those areas by visiting http://www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/maps.htm.

If so, you’ll need to obtain a non-fee permit at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center.
