The NPS hut at the Lower Saddle was successfully set up over the past two days signaling the start of the peak climbing season on the Grand Teton.  Rangers will conduct regular climbing patrols from it during the next two and a half months.  

Remote weather station data from the Lower Saddle is now also available by clicking on the link on the right.

 Things have been heating up in the Park with multiple search and rescue operations over the last two days in both the North and South Districts. Check out the links to peaks in Garnet Canyon, Teton Crest Trail and the North Fork Cascade for updated photos taken from the air. They'll give you a good sense of snow coverage in the Range.

Although the snow is melting fast, conditions still warrant an ice axe and crampons and good snow travel skills on steep slopes.

JUNE 4, 2013 - photo above of Teton Glacier, the North Face of the Grand, and the aprons of Mt Owen, taken while descending Teewinot's southwest couloirs.  Warm temps and last night's cloud cover made for a poor refreeze and we kicked boot-top to shin deep steps up the east face of Teewinot.  For more info, check the Teewinot page.
