Weekend storm may cause unsafe travel, unstable snowpack

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Teton County is currently under a Winter Storm Warning , so local authorities want to remind the community to stay safe when traveling and recreating. "This new snow may make vehicular travel dangerous or impossible. Please plan appropriately, leave earlier than normal to arrive at your destination safely. Slow down and give extra spacing to the vehicles in front of you," said the Teton County Sheriff's Office in a release issued today. Authorities also warn that this new snow may load and add instability to an already fragile snowpack. "We would like to remind backcountry travelers to show restraint when considering travel in and around avalanche terrain over the next few days.
