I think the Grand Tetons do have APRS coverage.
Look at W7OID-4.
It is on top of the Tram at Teton Village.  BUT (if I am not mistaken)
they are not on 144.390 witch does someone traveling through the area no
good.
I was up there a couple of weeks ago with our club providing support for
a bike race and forgot to check for sure.
