More YNP Winter Plan Discussions

YNP snowmobile

More public hearings are in store for the area as National Park officials continue to work on putting together a final winter use plan for Yellowstone National Park. Among the concerns raised by participants in the last round of hearings were a proposal to limit entry to the park to only prior to 10:30 am, a deadline to outfit all snow coaches being used for tours to be outfitted with new “best available technology,” and a lack of provisions for those wishing to access the park privately.  Spokesman Dan Hottle says while some of the alternatives under consideration have been adjusted in light of the comments, the Park wants to hear public’s ideas for addressing the concerns as they write a supplemental environmental impact Statement.  Hottle says the Park is trying to keep on track to have a final plan in place for the next winter season.  Open houses to receive comments are slated for February 13th in Cody, February 14th in Jackson, February 15th in West Yellowstone, Montana and February 16th in Bozeman, Montana.

And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
