The National Park Service has decided to close the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park during the winter.
The center is located in Moose and typically serves as a hub for visitors to Grand Teton during wintertime, when the vast majority of the park's services are closed for the season.
The closure means that Grand Teton will have no buildings other than bathrooms open to the public this winter.
Grand Teton chief of interpretation Vickie Mates says the decision for the winter closure was based purely on economics.
Mates tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that the park will save about $100,000.
She says the center has few visitors in the winter.
The center is scheduled to close for the season Nov. 4.
