Trail Conditions for 6-19-20

Teton Pass got some fresh snow this week so the trails up high will likely be a bit muddy in spots and there are definitely drifts lingering on ridges and in north facing tree cover.  The crew cleaned drainage and added fill to bridge approaches and turnpikes up Black Canyon and saw some bikers coming […]
