Most of the roads inside Yellowstone National Park will soon be no longer accessible to motor vehicle traffic.

The West, South and East entrances to the park, are scheduled to close to motor vehicle traffic at 12:01am on Monday, November 8th, for the 2021-22 winter season.

Only the North and Northeast entrances will remain open to motor vehicle traffic, weather permitting, so that motorists can travel between Gardiner and Cooke City, Montana.

If there’s enough snowfall, the park is scheduled to reopen the West, South, and East entrances to snowmobile and snow coach traffic on December 15th.

Snowplow crews won’t start clearing the closed snow covered highways until around middle-March of 2022, and motor vehicle traffic won’t be allowed back into the park, until sometime between middle April and middle May, depending on which entrance to the park is used.

Nearby, the main road in Grand Teton National Park was recently closed for the season and won’t reopen until May.
