In the Grand Tetons are there any earth avalanches set off by tremors. It seems to me that there may have been one on Mount St. John

Hi, 

Thank you for your question! Grand Teton National Park does contain active faults, and is at pretty high risk for earthquakes. The Teton Fault stretches to about forty four miles across. An earthquake occurs there around every two hundred years. You can read more specifics on the subject at these links: https://www.nps.gov/grte/learn/nature/geology.htm
