DEEP SNOW LINGERS IN THE HIGH COUNTRY - June 26, 2014

The high country above 9,000 feet is still under deep snow.  A recent patrol to Marion Lake revealed campsites still under over 10 FEET of snow!  Hikers, backpackers, and climbers should be prepared to deal with these conditions during their travels and plan on crossing extensive snow slopes, camping on snow, and approaching and descending steep snow when climbing alpine rock routes.  Please stop in and see us at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station to get the latest information on conditions in the Teton Range.
