EBS STAFF

Oversnow travel in Yellowstone National Park ended on March 15 and spring plowing was scheduled to begin shortly thereafter.

According to a press release from the park, roads through the park that are closed to vehicle traffic during the winter will likely reopen on Friday, April 15, weather permitting.

Some facilities remain open through the winter. In Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming, the Mammoth Campground, Yellowstone General Store, Post Office, Medical Clinic, Albright Visitor Center and self-serve fuel pumps are available year-round. The road connecting Yellowstone’s north entrance just outside of Gardiner, Montana, to Mammoth Hot Springs and Cooke City, Montana, is open to vehicles year-round and self-serve fuel pumps are available all year at Tower Junction, Wyoming.

The National Park Service advises visitors to keep their spring travel plans flexible and be prepared for changing weather conditions. Temporary travel restrictions or closures can occur at any time.

The most current information on road conditions and closures is available at gp.nps.gov/YellRoads or (307) 344-2117.
