MARCH 2014
Spring is Here!

With the snow starting to melt and the Teton Park Road open to non-motorized traffic, it's starting to feel like spring in Grand Teton. Signs of new life are occurring: willows are blooming orange along creeks, songbirds are starting to be heard again, and tracks appearing in the snow suggest that animals are emerging from their winter slumbers.

Spring in Grand Teton has begun! On Monday, March 24, Grand Teton National Park road crews began plowing the Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake to Signal Mountain Lodge. Winter trails adjacent to the road may still be used for Nordic skiing until the snow melts. While the roadway is closed to all traffic at this time, it's expected to re-open to non-motorized traffic in mid-April.
