BAXTER'S PINNACLE OPEN FOR SEASON - June 26, 2015

Effective immediately, the closure on Baxter's Pinnacle has been lifted.  This year's peregrine nest was, apparently, unsuccessful and the adults have left the area.

The avalanche activity in the high country has settled down and conditions are becoming more seasonal.  Climbers and hikers should still be careful on steep snow slopes especially in the afternoon hours on warm sunny days.

Due to the late spring storms there is still a significant amount of snow and ice on the Owen-Spalding Route of the Grand Teton.  An ice axe and crampons are needed for the descent of the Grand.

The Jenny Lake Ranger Station is now open daily for the summer season from 8-5pm.  Stop in and see us to get the latest conditions information before your trip.
