SNOWY CONDITIONS PERSIST IN THE HIGH COUNTRY - MAY 25, 2015

With over a week of snowy wet weather the high mountains and backcountry of Grand Teton NP are still in winter conditions through the Memorial Day weekend and into the near future.  Although a low snow year has the Valley Trail and some lower canyons melted out, expect to encounter snow above 8,500 ft (aspect dependent).  Many wet loose avalanches have been observed through the weekend in steep alpine terrain.  Avalanche awareness and caution are advised in the alpine.
