Teton Pass update: Progress on detour, mudslide containment

What seemed like a rude awakening to the start of summer in Teton Valley is now looking up. After the Teton Pass suffered a catastrophic failure, we heard rumors of a long-term closure. To our surprise, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has announced that they will construct a temporary road alongside the shoulder where the road failure occurred to restore traffic flow. They have provided information suggesting that this process may only take 3-5 weeks. We are thrilled by the recent news, as it gives us the confidence that travelers can still visit Teton Valley and enjoy the best of both worlds.


If the pass happens to be closed for construction during your stay, an alternative route is to opt for a less-traveled path. Consider driving through Pine Creek Pass (US26 through Swan Valley) to Jackson Hole, Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Teton National Park. Although this route adds a few extra miles, the picturesque views make it worthwhile. Passing through Swan Valley allows you to make a stop for square-shaped ice cream cones, drive by the stunning Palisade Lakes in Alpine, and marvel at the breathtaking scenery, adding a touch of magic to your trip. When visiting Teton Valley, the key is to relax and absorb everything around you. Don’t allow a minor detour to deter you from your journey.

While the closure of the Pass may have seemed like a setback, we want to assure travelers that Teton Valley, Idaho has plenty more to offer than they may realize. Here are some must-see/do attractions to make sure you have a wonderful trip, perhaps even better than planned.
