Comment on Grand Targhee resort expansion scoping

Grand Targhee ski area is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement governing the expansion of the resort’s permit area into Teton Canyon. TBCA strongly opposes this expansion as it intrudes into important wildlife habitat, it has long been a backcountry ski area, and the area borders the wild winter backcountry resource of Teton Canyon and Jedediah Smith Wilderness.
