Group seeks to protect Teton Pass recreation

A Jackson based group has been formed to promote winter recreation on Teton Pass, Grand Teton National Park, and other public lands in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

The Teton Backcountry Alliance said it hopes to find a balance between backcountry access and stewardship.

The group cites community, conservation, and access as top priorities for skiers and snowboarders. It will focus on access and safety issues on Teton Pass, as well as steps backcountry users can take to keep the pass open to recreationists.

One of its first challenges will be that of public parking, which has become an occasional safety issue for the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
