Yellowstone National Park has finished preparing for winter and is ready to invite the public back in this weekend, Park public information officer Linda Veress explains.

“Yellowstone’s winter season starts on Saturday, December 15,” Veress said. “The roads will open at 8 a.m., except there is going to be a delayed opening between the north entrance and Swan Lake Flats for snow mobiles. The road from the north entrance of the park to the northeast entrance out to Cooke City, that is open year round to automobile traffic. All other roads in the park, there is limited access to commercially guided snow mobile tours, snow coaches.”

More than four million people have visited Yellowstone already this year, and at times there was bumper to bumper traffic… but not anymore. Veress says one of the many great reasons to visit Yellowstone in Winter is there are a lot fewer people
