The way it was: Snowmobile trail talk -- 1988Aug 11, 2013 Staff
In August 1988, representatives from the five counties -- Fremont, Sublette, Sweetwater, Teton and Park -- were making the rounds to local governments seeking financial commitments to establish the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail. The Lander City Council was in for $10,000, and Fremont County had pledged $13,867. Teton and Sublette counties made pledges in the $5,000 range.
Coming up in August was a trip to see the Jackson Town Council, with a $5,000 request on the table. Planners also were working to get a go-head from Grand Teton National Park for permission to loop some of the trail through park land.
