East Entrance Closed Due to Snow

Written by on September 20, 2017

Although the calendar says we are still in summer, fall officially begins on Friday – and road conditions in Yellowstone National Park are getting a jump start on the season.
The East Entrance to Yellowstone was closed yesterday due to winter conditions – and although the Park Service sent out an update yesterday evening saying that the road had re-opened, as of this morning the live map on the Park’s website shows that the roads between the East Entrance and Tower Falls to the north, and all the way to Old Faithful and the South Entrance are only open to over-snow vehicles.
Roads in the park continue to get snow with brief periods of relief. The forecast for the rest of this week shows snow is expected in the Park, with a winter weather advisory in place from tonight through Friday.
The Park Service advises that it’s always a good idea to check online for the current road status.
