Grand Teton National Park is an excellent weekend excursion for those coming from the Bozeman area.

  • Grand Teton National Park is open year-round. However, several entrances can be closed during winter weather as well as many of the visitor facilities.

Overview
Today, Grand Teton National Park covers a distance of over 300,000 acres and hosts about 2.5 million visitors a year. Visitors are attracted to the dramatic landscape of mountains that abruptly rise 7,000 feet above the valley floor. There are no foothills to ease the transition from valley to mountain, making the view of the Tetons all the more intense.

The summit of the Grand Teton rises to 13,770 feet, while the valley floor sits at 6,400 feet. Between the sagebrush valley floor and rocky mountain summits, grow dense forests. In the summers, wildflowers abound and glacial lakes are full. The winter months are harsh with whipping winds, snowstorms, and temperatures that often drop below zero degrees.
