JACKSON, Wyo. — The owner of a Jackson Hole wildlife safari company remains disgruntled that he's not able to give cross-country ski tours in Grand Teton National Park despite winning a judgment against the National Park Service.
Last year, a U.S. Court of Federal Claims judge found that the National Park Service broke the law by not awarding Eco Tour Adventures a 10-year contract to guide cross-country ski and snowshoe tours in Grand Teton park.
The judge ordered the Park Service to reimburse Eco Tour owner Taylor Phillips $50,000 but did not require a reassignment of the contract
Phillips said he would have preferred the contract over the money.
Park Service spokesman James Doyle says the agency is working on a written explanation to Phillips.
