Snow keeping some BT forest areas closed longer than anticipated
Apr 22, 2014 - The Associated Press
JACKSON -- The plentiful snow that fell in northwestern Wyoming this winter could keep some popular areas of the Bridger-Teton National Forest closed longer than normal.
Snowdrifts are blocking access in some spots while muddy soil prone to erosion is also leading officials to consider keeping other areas closed to vehicles as well as bikers and hikers.
Some of the areas that could have delayed openings are Curtis Canyon and Shadow and Munger mountains. They have been previously slated to open May 1.
Granite Hot Springs is expected to open before Memorial Day if Granite Creek Road is deemed drivable.
