Yellowstone Spring Snow Plowing Ending Over-snow Travel
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 28, 2020
Yellowstone will be closing roads to begin the mammoth task of plowing
Roads throughout the park will be shut down to begin spring plowing. All over-snow travel will end for the season on the night March 15th, but some roads will close a but earlier. The East Entrance to Lake Butte Overlook at Sylvan Pass and Mammoth Hot Springs to Norris will close entirely in March 1st. The roads from Norris to Madison and Canyon Village will close by March 3rd. All remaining groomed roads will close by the season’s end on March 15th.
Even year-round attractions will see temporary closures. The road from the park’s North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana, through Mammoth Hot Springs to Cooke City, Montana, is open to automobiles all year, but the Gift Shop, Ski Shop, and food services at Mammoth Hot Springs will all close March 2. At Old Faithful, Old Faithful Snow Lodge & Cabins close March 1. The Bear Den Gift Shop, the Geyser Grill, and the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center will close March 15.
Weather permitting, some park roads will reopen to automobile travel on April 17, at 8 a.m. Again, weather permitting.
