Climbing Gym Survey Published To Collect Community Input

—Spanish version developed to engage Latino Community—

In the November 2019 election, Teton County voters approved $22 million, via the SPET initiative’s Proposition #9, for “Teton County/Jackson Recreation Center Expansion and Renovation, Community Climbing Gym, King Street Extension, and Stormwater Treatment.”

To assist with the climbing gym’s development, The Teton Climbers’ Coalition, which has been designated as the climbing gym advisory council by Teton County Parks and Recreation, has developed a survey to help collect information that will inform the gym’s development.

The survey includes demographical questions to identify the gym’s user base, as well as questions related to the types of climbing the community would like to see. 

Other questions are designed to help identify which times of the day and days of the week would see the most usage, which in turn could be used to develop operational plans for the gym.

One of the Teton Climbers’ Coalition’s objectives is to help change the cultural narrative of outdoor recreation in Jackson Hole to better serve the Latino population. Accordingly, a Spanish version of the survey is available, and efforts to engage the Latino population in completing it are underway.
