Beartooth Highway Projected to Open

Weather-permitting, Beartooth Highway (US-212) from Red Lodge to Cooke City, Montana, projected to open June 1
Highway currently open for 19 miles from Red Lodge, Montana to Vista Point
Weather-permitting, the Beartooth Highway (US-212), located east of the park’s Northeast Entrance between Red Lodge, Montana, and Cooke City, Montana, is projected to open in its entirety Saturday, June 1.
Currently, the highway is partially open for 19 miles from Red Lodge, Montana, to Vista Point.
Crews are working hard to plow through wet, heavy snow that is approximately 6 feet deep on the highway.
The highway was originally scheduled to open May 24 but has remained closed due to a significant storm that brought winter weather conditions, significant snowfall and hazardous driving conditions.
Once the highway opens, temporary travel restrictions or closures can occur at any time without notice. Have flexible travel plans and watch for quickly changing weather conditions.
Check for road status and updates on the Montana and Wyoming departments of transportation websites.
