TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — A mother and daughter moose made a public appearance Sunday morning at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) as they strutted their way across Lower Teewinot below the Bronco terrain park amidst crowds of skiers and snowboarders.
Skiers and riders stopped to take photos and gave the moose space as they safely returned to the trees. Moose can often be found on the outskirts of JHMR, in neighborhoods like Granite Ridge and can make their way into the resort.
Moose are relatively common throughout the Jackson Hole valley, but especially along the Snake River corridor and slopes of the Teton Range, including residential areas associated with the towns of Wilson, Teton Village and Jackson. While human injuries from moose are not common, Wyoming Game and Fish reminds the public to use caution and give the large ungulates plenty of space.
