Snow Plowing

Questions or concerns regarding County snow removal should be directed to the Teton County Road and Bridge Department.

Plowing Hours:

In a snow event a check for snow will be conducted at 2:00 AM to allow time to have a majority of the roads open by 7:00 AM. At 2:00 AM if there are three (3) or more inches of snow and the conditions allow, we plow. When blizzard conditions exist, plowing will begin when it subsides (not 2:AM). When plowing is required, the entire route is done in the most efficient order. Operator duty shifts are generally limited to a max of 12 hours per day for safety. 

Operations will be halted when: (a) service levels are reached, (b) coverage time has elapsed, (c) conditions are too hazardous, or (d) reasonable accomplishments cannot be made. During a major storm plows may only open one lane and will return to widen roads as conditions permit. After a major storm, cleanup operations will be on-going for multiple days.

Current Conditions:

The most up to date information for current conditions on Idaho State Highways- 26, 31, 32, and 33 are available from the Idaho Department of Transportation:

 

The Public Works departments in the cities of Driggs, Victor, and Tetonia are responsible for snow removal within their city limits:

Teton County Idaho receives an average annual snowfall total of 65 in. on the valley floor and 160 in. at higher elevations. 

Warnings: Remember to slow down and give plow drivers and other motorists room; allow extra travel time when wintry conditions exist.  Be aware that children and pets should not play in the rights-of-way. Caves built into snow berms could be fatal.
