In keeping with a trend seen at other major ski resorts, the Grand Teton National Park was packed this summer.  August saw 568,000 people visit the park.  That is 8% greater than last years number in August where the Grand Teton National Park had 527,000 visitors.  The month of July also experienced a big increase in traffic.

In other Jackson Hole news, one of its many thespian residents, Harrison Ford recently got to sail an America’s Cup boat.  The trimaran, BMW Oracle with Larry Ellison and crew handed Harrison Ford the wheel and got to watch the famed thespian slash airplane pilot slash rocking skier strut his stuff aqua style. 

Is there anything this Jackson Hole resident can’t do?
