Yellowstone Snow Machines
Yellowstone National Park officials have proposed an earlier opening date and later closure during the winter at an entrance for snow machines and snow coaches. Park officials announced plans to open the East Entrance from Dec. 15 to March 15. The East Entrance is currently allocated two commercially guided snowmobile trips, one non-commercially guided trip and one commercial snow coach on each day of the winter. The updated dates for opening the gate located west of Cody, Wyoming, could add an average of 19 to 25 additional snowmobiles in the park each day during the winter season.
