Beartooth Highway Update – 6/1/13 – 12:30 pm

US 212 So of Red Lodge>>> BEARTOOTH PASS IS NOW REOPENED ON THE MT SIDE ONLY FROM RED LODGE TO THE STATE LINE.

When at the Stateline Travelers will need to turn around and go back down to Red Lodge. Travelers will still need to find an alternate route to Cooke City. The PASS is Bare & Dry to Vista Pt. and WET from Vista Point to the MT/WY Stateline. Watch for the potential of Icy Spots or Drifting on the top. Watch for rapidly changing conditions on the PASS which could create Icy/Blizzard like conditions without forewarning.

The WY side of Beartooth Pass is still CLOSED. The National Park Service is working on their side of the PASS but do not expect to get it open today.

Travelers can access Cooke City, Montana and the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone National Park via the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway (WY 296).

Fishing Beartooth Highway

The cutthroat is the only true western native trout. Originally wide spread throughout the state, it is now relegated to the higher, cooler, more inaccessible back country lakes and streams. Cutthroats are easily identified by the bright red “cut” on the lower jaw.
