Yellowstone Opens to Winter Travel
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Select roads in Yellowstone National Park have opened to the public for motorized oversnow travel.
Visitors on Saturday morning were able to travel the park's interior roads on commercially-guided snowmobiles and snowcoaches from the West and South Entrances. Visitors who have proper permits can also participate in the non-commercially guided snowmobile trips.
Travel between the North Entrance and Swan Lake Flat is being limited to commercially-guided snowcoaches. This section will remain closed to visitor snowmobile use until more snow accumulates on the road.
Travel from the park's East Entrance over Sylvan Pass is scheduled to begin next Friday if the weather permits.
The road from the park's North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana, through Mammoth Hot Springs to Cooke City, Montana, is open to wheeled vehicle travel all year.
