Teton Pass

Teton Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.570m (8,431ft) above the sea level, located in Teton County, in Wyoming, near the border with Idaho, in USA.

Located at the southern end of the Teton Range, the road over the pass is asphalted with shapr curves. It’s called Wyoming Highway 22 (Teton Pass Highway). The maximum grade on the road is 10%. Located within the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the pass sits between Wilson (in Teton County, Wyoming) and Victor (in Teton County, Idaho).

This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. Avalanches and heavy snowfalls can sometimes block some sections of the road and can be extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. There are several avalanche slide paths traverse the road along its length, including Glory Bowl slide area. During the winter months, the road is often closed in the early mornings for avalanche control by the Wyoming Department of Transportation.
