The Beartooth Highway is currently closed to motor vehicle traffic. Each year in early November winter snows close the Beartooth Highway to over the road travel. During winter months the Beartooth Highway and surround area provide spectacular winter sports opportunities including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Highway plowing beings in late spring every year and the Beartooth Highway typically opens to motor vehicle traffic in time for Memorial Day. 2013 road opening information is provided here.
