Only one game in town: Chabad of Jackson Hole. Rabbi Mendelsohn is extremely warm and visitor friendly and will definitely have a Shabbos minyan in August, possibly even weekday if there are enough tourists. But lodging in town is VERY expensive, so book ASAP.

Also know that Yellowstone is currently closed due to flooding, and even though parts of it will almost definitely be reopened by then, the northern part probably won't be, which will mean even more crazy traffic and possibly even timed entry to keep crowds under control.

A shame about the crowding that will cause. The north part of the park is great for distracting tourists away from the best parts of the park

Thank you! I'm keeping an eye on the plan for Yellowstone to reopen. Seems like a large possiblity the northern loop will open in a few weeks. Also a way to avoid ALPS is to stay in the park (yeh I know it's hard to find an open room  :) ).

Right I forgot to mention if you have hotel or campground reservations you aren't subject to Alps
