Discussion about avalanche hazard mitigation and snowsheds on Teton Pass has a long history. Below, we have collected local news snapshots in the timeline of the issue on Teton Pass:
1970: A story reporting that avalanche control on Teton Pass started that year
1971: A story proclaiming that “sheds are the ultimate answer”
1989: A series of stories…1, 2, 3, 4, 5…about the Teton county commission considering funding Teton Pass snowshed construction and about a feasibility study undertaken that year stating that the cost of the Glory shed would have been about $8m. Another story later reported the Teton County Commission postponed construction till 1993. Of course, construction never happened.
