Posting the latest information from both the Montana Department of Transportation & Yellowstone Park Service:
MTDOT Update – Red Lodge
US-212; South of Red Lodge – The Beartooth Pass has been re-opened only as far as the Vista Point Rest Area. It remains closed beyond Vista Point due to blowing and drifting snow. Travelers will have to find an alternate route to reach Cooke City and Yellowstone Park.
Additional information for US 212 Beartooth Pass south of Red Lodge.
The Beartooth Pass is open to Vista Point. The road conditions are scattered wet. Travelers should be advised that wet areas may turn icy if temperatures drop. As always, conditions on the Pass are subject to change quickly depending on the weather.
Yellowstone National Park Update
Snow has let up some this morning, so a crew is headed up that way to try to start on reopening. We received around 12″ on the Wyoming side over the past couple of days. Weather forecast is not good at this point in time with showers and possible winds over the next couple of days.
Will continue to update here as I receive additional information.
