As of 10: am this morning the higher elevations of the Beartooth Highway including Beartooth Pass remain closed with high elevation snow being reported. We will continue to update here and on the Beartooth Highway website as conditions change.
Travelers are reminded that the “switchback” section of the Beartooth Highway to Vista Point and the Montana/Wyoming state line are open and the community of Red Lodge, Montana welcomes you to travel that beautiful section of the Highway, and visit their great community for shopping, lunch or dinner, and sightseeing.
The western 17 miles of the Beartooth Highway from its intersection with the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway (WY 296) is also open for travel and will take visitors into Cooke City, Montana and the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
Safe travels everyone! Watch for updates both here on the website and on Facebook: http://facebook.com/BeartoothHighway.
