Snow

Winter forecasts call for below-average temperatures but different amounts of snow across the country  – and the Bighorn Basin appears to be caught between two different winters. Fall hasn’t started yet – the season officially ends on Thursday, Sept. 22. But winter is coming . . . The Old Farmer’s Almanac has released its forecast…

Is it ever too early to expect snow in Wyoming? These pictures show that the answer is no! Photos courtesy of WYDOT show the first appreciable snowfall in Powder River Pass in the Big Horn Mountains. This may be the first of many Wyoming snowfalls as some meteorologists predict a colder, snowier winter in the…

With so much wetness in northwest Wyoming, it might not be surprising that the season’s first snowfall has already fallen at the top of the Grand Tetons. The website SnowBrains, which monitors ski conditions and snow forecasts for peaks worldwide, reports the Grand Teton is building up the white stuff. The first snow of the…

The Bureau of Land Management Cody Field Office announced today that it will delay the opening of Carter Mountain until July 1 due to recent heavy precipitation and snowmelt. “With numerous snowdrifts remaining across the road, it’s too early to open the gates,” said B.L.M. Cody Field Manager Cade Powell. “A two-week delay in the…

W.Y.D.O.T. and Yellowstone National Park confirm the Beartooth Highway is entirely open for the first time since its “opening day” in late May, but there are still full nighttime closures all summer. U.S. Highway 212 – the Beartooth Highway – is again open to tourist traffic. But getting to this opening was no small task.…

The Beartooth Highway is a “snow go” for tourists, and W.Y.D.O.T. and M.D.O.T. say it will take until next week to remove four feet of snow dropped on the pass since it opened – and closed – on May 27. Last Friday, the Beartooth Highway opened for Summer 2022 at 8 a.m. By 5 p.m.,…

Adverse weather kept W.Y.D.O.T. busy this weekend, as crews saved stranded drivers while clearing major highways of several feet of snow and falling rocks. Memorial Day 2022 was wet and cold in northwest Wyoming. However, the weather was severe enough that many drivers got caught in the snow at higher elevations, needing help from W.Y.D.O.T.…

Friday, May 27, will be a day of highway openings, as three scenic drives in northwest Wyoming – the Beartooth Highway, U.S. 14A, and the Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone – are opening for Summer 2022. May 27 could be considered the official start of the summer in northwest Wyoming. By that time, all major roads…

It may be Yellowstone’s summer season, but avalanches are causing temporary closures of the East Entrance, stopping the already steady flow of tourists. After multiple temporary closures, officials at Yellowstone National Park are advising tourists passing through the East Entrance to anticipate more closures this week. The reason is an increased avalanche danger in the…

WYDOT and W.H.P. were ready for April 22’s sudden snowstorm, but the biggest issue for troopers and plowers was overly ambitiously, gate-rushing stubborn drivers. Rather than focus on opening the roads, operators had to pull away from plowing and focus on removing vehicles from the road to complete plowing. Troopers responded to stranded motorists who…
