Sylvan Pass Closed for Spring
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 2, 2018
Despite the forecast for snow this weekend, a sure sign of spring happened yesterday, when Yellowstone National Park officials announced the spring closure of Sylvan Pass.
Each year the Park Service closes the roads within the park to prepare for spring plowing, to prepare the interior of the Park for visitors in May. The road from East Entrance to Lake Butte Overlook closed yesterday at 9:00 p.m.
All oversnow travel within the park will end for the season Thursday, March 15, at 9:00 p.m., when spring plowing will begin.
However, because springtime in Wyoming often brings snow, officials warn travelers to obtain the latest forecast before traveling, to plan ahead, and to heed road closures.
