Snow Slows Campground Openings In Grand Teton

Jackson, Wy – Lingering deep snow has delayed the opening of facilities at the south end of Jenny Lake in Grand Teton
National Park.
Those facilities include the Jenny Lake Visitor Center, which
originally was scheduled to open this coming Saturday and now won't
open until May 22.
Opening of the campground at Jenny Lake also has been pushed
back about 10 days to May 22.
Grand Teton spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says there's still three
to four feet of snow on the ground in many areas. The park got
heavy snow all winter and temperatures have been chilly this
spring.
Skaggs says the deep snow is an eye-opener for visitors from
down South.
