Teton Pass Parking RestrictedAt the top of Teton Pass a pull-out (or parking lot, depending on your point of reference) which has historically been used as an access point for backcountry skiing and snowboarding is being restricted. The restrictions are due to infrastructure repairs to a truck arrester on the east side of the pass, which is requiring trucks to use the pull-out to check their brakes at the top of the hill. This all seems well and good, though some backcountry enthusiasts would not agree.
