In Wyoming, and especially its principal tourist town Jackson, a decades-long quest to bring in more tourists in the fall to even out a roller-coaster economy is bearing fruit. But sources say the roller-coaster is starting to show signs of peaking.

In the early 1980s and earlier, Jackson business owners say that as soon as school was back in session, it was like the tourist flow valve turned off. Business transactions went from hopping to halting in a New York minute. Businesses hobbled through fall, winter and spring with revenues and a hangover from the hard-work summers.
