PassWords: Control Your Dogs

It’s been a pretty incredible winter up on the pass.  We’ve enjoyed Endless Powder and a parking lot full of friends.  Jay Pistono, Friends of Pathways Pass Ambassador, has been impressed with the incredible cooperation on Teton Pass this year.  People are carpooling, ride sharing, parking close together, and choosing their lines wisely.

As the season comes to an end, we ask you to remember one more important thing: keep those dogs under control.  We suggest you bring a leash for controlling your dog when unloading.  When you’re ready to depart, you can let your dog off the leash.  Then, you’ll be sure to scoop that inevitable poop.  Also, bring your leash in case you encounter wildlife.  Please don’t let your dogs chase moose or any other animals.  It’s very stressful for them and winter is challenging enough.

The Pass Ambassador is a community-driven program with partner support from Friends of PathwaysBridger-Teton National Forest, Teton County Search and Rescue Foundation, and Wyoming Department of Transportation. The AmPassador program is also sponsored with generous direct support from Outdoor Research. Please remember to thank these great community-minded organizations!
