Snow Closes Roads in Yellowstone / Grand Teton
« on: May 26, 2012, 02:18:39 am »
A number of roads in Yellowstone have been closed due to a spring snowstorm.
Up to a foot of snow is expected in higher elevations by Monday - with high winds.
These are, at best, nasty conditions - and can be dangerous for the unprepared.

At present - Old Faithful to West Thumb on the TA is closed.
Also, Canyon to Tower, the East Entrance, and Beartooth Pass.

Further south on the TA - Togwotee Pass is snowpacked and dangerous.

Many other roads at higher elevation in WY, MT, and ID are also impacted.
