There are only a few days left to drive your own vehicle into the interior of Yellowstone before the roads close for the season.

Roads to most of the park’s popular locations close to vehicle travel at 8:00 a.m. Monday, November 3. The exception is the road from the park’s North Entrance at Gardiner, Mont., through Mammoth Hot Springs to the park’s Northeast Entrance and the communities of Cooke City and Silver Gate, Mont., which is open all year, weather permitting. All other park roads close for the season to allow staff members to begin preparing the roads for guided snowmobile and snowcoach travel beginning December 15.

Visitors driving to and in the park during the fall and winter are encouraged to have flexible travel plans and be prepared for changing weather conditions. Temporary travel restrictions or closures like those experienced Sunday and Monday can occur at any time without notice. Mud and snow tires or tire chains may be required. Updated information on road conditions in Yellowstone is available 24-hours a day by calling 307-344-2117.

At Mammoth Hot Springs, the Yellowstone General Store, Post Office, medical clinic, campground, and visitor center remain open all year. Pay-at-the pump fuel is available 24 hours a day all year at all park service stations.

All communities near and on the way to Yellowstone are open all year, with local businesses offering a wide range of fall and winter recreation opportunities.
