Gros Ventre Mountain Range:
The Gros Ventre Mountain Range (pronounced groh-vahnt) is part of the Central Rocky Mountains and is located west of the Continental Divide in Wyoming. The highest summit in the range is Doubletop Peak at 11,720 feet. The Gros Ventre Mountain Range is mostly within the Gros Ventre Wilderness of Bridger-Teton National Forest. To the northwest of the range lies the valley known as Jackson Hole. The Gros Ventre name is French, which means "big belly", and originated from Indian sign language meant to convey the idea of "always hungry". The area is home to elk, moose, deer, black grizzly bear, and many other species. The United States Congress designated the Gros Ventre Wilderness in 1984 and it now has a total of 317,874 acres. Gros Ventre is a popular destination for snowmobiling for novices, as well as seasoned riders.
See where the landslide that took out the town of Kelly (and formed Slide Lake) occurred. The Gros Ventre Valley is considered a critical winter game range so no off-trail snowmobile riding is permitted.
