JACKSON HOLE, WYO – US Highway 26/89/191 between Moose Junction and Moran Junction has reopened but it wasn’t easy.

End of the line for this trucker. (NPS)

Road crews’ efforts were complicated by a semi-trailer truck that violated the closure last night and became stuck in the drifted snow.

The highway was closed yesterday afternoon due to high winds. The winds reduced visibility to zero along the highway between Teton Point Turnout and Snake River Overlook and also caused significant drifting in this area.? The pictures tell the story of drifting snow well.

Get going while you can. A significant snow event is hitting Jackson Hole again tomorrow morning through most of Thursday.
