The Teton Pass summit parking lot is closing, with strict enforcement starting Friday.
Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. Matt Brackin said Thursday that backcountry use from the pass is not being discouraged, only that skiers and snowboarders will have to find another means of access.
"If people want to get dropped off on top that's fine," he said. "You just won't be able to have cars parking there."
The overflow parking lot a quarter-mile east will be open. Brackin emphasized that the no-parking rule will be enforced beginning Friday.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation is closing the parking area to use it as a mandatory brake check area for vehicles.
