Weather hampers work to restore power in Teton County

Crews are working day and night to restore power that was knocked out to parts of Teton County by a storm earlier this week.

Tuesday’s storm brought down 17 steel transmission line poles, cutting power to the Teton Village ski town, Jackson Hole Mountain Ski Resort and surrounding residential areas.

Lower Valley Energy spokesman Brian Tanabe tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that temporary wooden poles are being installed until new steel poles can be erected this summer.

The work is being hampered by poor weather conditions and avalanches that have closed roads and prevented hardware from Denver from entering the valley.

Tanabe says Teton Village will be without power for four to six more days. The ski resort is closed at least until Monday.
