Yellowstone’s east entrance is set to open Friday morning, but travel over it may be limited due to potential wet snow slides. Al Nash and Yellowstone avalanche forecasters are closely monitoring the weather, snowpack, moisture, and all of the complex factors that go into determining the safety of travel:

“We’ve had a really significant snowfall over the course of this winter,” Nash said. “But as things start to get warm and melt, we’ve got a really deep snowpack that presents the potential for wet snowslides over to and across Sylvan Pass.”

Nash said the potential for temporary closures of the east entrance road could exist for several weeks until more snow melts and the snowpack stabilizes.

Travelers are encouraged to check the park’s 24 hour road report hotline at (307) 344-2117 for the latest updates before planning to travel between Cody and the Fishing Bridge Area.
