SPRING UPDATE & TRAIL CLOSURE - MAY 12, 2017

Click Image to Enlarge
Warm temperatures over the past two weeks have had an impact on snow conditions in the Teton Range.  Evidence of point slope releases and "roller balls" is abundant on the high peaks.  Freezing overnight temperatures have been hit or miss, resulting in poor and unsafe travel conditions at times.  Trails in the valley are beginning to melt out, but travel is still cumbersome and difficult due to lingering snow drifts.  The Inspiration Point area is no exception and hikers should be prepared to deal with significant snow travel that is difficult and potentially hazardous at this time.  Hikers should also be aware of several area trail closures, including Hidden Falls, due to ongoing construction work (see above map).
