YNP Winter Season Begins

YNP Winter

The winter season begins this weekend in Yellowstone National Park.  Beginning at 7:00 am Saturday morning, visitors will be able to travel to the park’s interior roads on commercially guided snowmobiles or snowcoaches from the North, West and South Entrances.  Travel through the park’s East Entrance over Sylvan Pass is scheduled to begin December 22nd.  The road from the park’s North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana through Mammoth Hot Springs and on to Cooke City outside the park’s Northeast Entrance is open to wheeled vehicle travel all year.  Spokesman Dan Hottle says all-in-all, the road conditions have shaped up well for the season.  Hottle says they were a little worried at the beginning of the week, but through the week, the Park saw a steady amount of snowfall through the interior part of the park – and although there are some bare patches here and there that are marked for snowmobilers to avoid, the conditions are fantastic.  At the Old Faithful area, Hottle says the Geyser Grill, the Bear Den Gift Shop, and the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center open for the season on December 15th. The Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins and the Obsidian Dining Room open on December 18th.  The Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, dining room and gift shop will open for the season on December 20th.   The Yellowstone General Store, the medical clinic, campground, post office and the Albright Visitor Center at Mammoth Hot Springs are open all year, as are the 24-hour gasoline pumps at Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower Junction.

  • Goose hunters will always have a Halloween costume - October 31, 2014
    Thank goodness for non-hunting spouses. If it weren’t for our better halves, most of us who hunt would be completely unprepared for fall holidays. Halloween is certainly one of the days that would be far less exciting if there weren’t people in our households who think about other things besides late-season deer, ducks, geese, pheasants […]

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
