JACKSON HOLE, WYO – With another winter season of backcountry use on Teton Pass winding down and the Teton Backcountry Alliance is seeking input from users on the future management of the Pass and its surrounding terrain.
“After a winter of historic snowfall and one very serious near-miss, management of Teton Pass backcountry use is in flux and it is important to bring public input into the conversation sooner than later,” explained Teton Backcountry Alliance steering committee chairman, Gary Kofinas.
Survey responses will be used to inform future conversations with the Wyoming Department of Transportation, the US Forest Service, Wyoming Highway Patrol, and other stakeholder agencies. Take a few moments to complete the survey online and share your ideas on solutions to various ‘problem areas’ and possible solutions you may have.
“The survey is our first attempt to bridge the gap between public opinion and agency-level decisions, so we ask that all backcountry users please take fifteen minutes of their day to click through, comment, and weigh in,” urged Teton Pass Ambassador and TBCA steering committee member Jay Pistono.
Results of the survey will be made public and shared with management agencies. Please note that the survey is produced and administered by the Teton Backcountry Alliance, NOT the agencies.
Teton Backcountry Alliance will close the survey to analyze results on April 23.
