JACKSON, Wyo. — Officials at Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming are unsure if a recently damaged roof will delay a preserve center's spring reopening.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports ( ) that an unusual amount of snow water, rain and warm temperatures at Grand Teton may have crushed the roof of the Laurance S. Rockfeller Preserve Center. The center is a popular attraction at the park and was opened in 2007.

Park officials say maintenance workers spotted the damage Thursday. They say no one was in the building when the damage occurred.

Before crews can work on the roof, they must clear the snow on roads that lead to the building.

The crews will also be checking to see if the building suffered any other damages.


This story has been corrected to show that the park is in northwest Wyoming.
