WILSON, Wyo. — As of 7:08 a.m., Teton Pass is closed due to avalanche activity.
According to the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) there is no anticipated time for reopening.
“Numerous small bank slides have come down on the roadway and have rendered it unpassable,” said WYDOT. “Crews are actively working to clear traffic so they can clean up the debris.”
Highway travelers and backcountry users are advised to plan accordingly.
