On behalf of the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board, Visit Jackson Hole and The Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board (JHTTB) is heartbroken over the recent catastrophic flooding in Yellowstone National Park (YNP). Though portions of the Southern Loop have re-opened, we recognize people and families are displaced, ways of life have been interrupted, infrastructure has been lost or severely damaged, and precious areas of the ecosystem may never be the same.
Since this event began to unfold, JHTTB has taken the position (with consultation from land managers and our advertising and public relations agency of record) that our best opportunity to be helpful in the early stages of this crisis was by serving as an amplifier for updates and information from YNP and responding state agencies. We recognize the flood has a profound impact on our travel and tourism sector, and there will be plenty for us to communicate in the days, weeks and months ahead.
The following strategies and actions are in place, underway or under consideration and our ultimate goal to serve as a resource for response and recovery during this challenging time. Similar to the pandemic response, the JHTTB maintains the agility and funding to support community needs.
Next 2-3 Weeks
Next 1-3 Months (and Beyond)
In closing, we remain in close coordination with a wide range of stakeholders, state agencies, elected officials and communications specialists and we will continue to adapt to this dynamic situation in real-time while always serving the best interests of our community.
