Yellowstone Opening Delayed, Grand Teton Visitors Centers to Stay Closed

Jump to last reply

For anybody planning on visiting Yellowstone this spring, heads up. The opening will be delayed about 2 weeks, as the snow plows will not start work on clearing the roads due to budget cuts forced by sequestration.

In addition, Grand Teton visitor centers at Flagg Ranch, Jenny Lake and the Laurence S. Rockefeller Preserve will not be able to open at all.

No doubt the cuts will impact all our National Parks, but these are the first two announcements I've seen.

Here are a couple of links for more information about it:
