Relics of bygone era: Snow planes rally in Tetonia

A snow plane stands ready to accommodate passengers Saturday in Tetonia. The vehicle basically is a wingless airplane mounted on skis, what some would consider an early version of a snowmobile. Back in the day, “It was about the only means of transportation in the winter,” snow plane owner Clark Lenz said. Pat Sutphin /

TETONIA — Daryl Zohner got his first look at a snow plane back in the late 1960s.

At the time, he was fishing at Jackson Lake in the dead of winter.
