Please note that both National parks are closed to vehicular traffic in the winter. Therefore, the only way to experience either park is via a snowcoach or snowmobile tour.
Beginning Monday, November 5th, Yellowstone National Park is closed to vehicle travel so preparations can be made to make the roads ready for the winter season and snowmobile/snowcoach travel. The winter season gets underway December 15, 2019.
The West, South, and East entrances and all roads will close to vehicle travel at 8am Monday, November 5. The one exception is the park’s North entrance located in Gardiner, Montana, through Mammoth Hot Springs to the park’s Northeast entrance and the communities of Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana. This road is open all year, weather permitting. Travel east of Cooke City (via the Beartooth Highway) is not possible from late fall to late spring.
Anyone with plans to drive to and in the park during the fall and winter, please remember to have flexible travel plans and prepare for changing weather conditions. Winter in Yellowstone is like few places most have ever experienced. Temperatures can get extremely cold and snow can make travel virtually impossible at times.
Temporary travel restrictions or closures can occur at any time without notice. Visit Park Roads for the status of Yellowstone roads. Receive Yellowstone road alerts on your mobile phone, text “82190” to 888-777. An automatic text reply will confirm receipt and provide instructions. Yellowstone closes for the winter season on March 15, 2020 and you will not be able to enter the park until May, 2020.
All tours have a 48 hour cancellation policy (unless otherwise noted) and are subject to a 20% cancellation fee.
