Yellowstone’s new winter use rule appeases sportsmen and conservationists alike
Warm weather tourist traffic is winding down in Yellowstone National Park, and they’re getting ready for winter tourists. The National Park Services bans over-snow vehicles in all national parks, unless individual parks pass rules permitting and regulating them.
Yellowstone has been refining its rules regulating snowmobile and snow coach traffic for about 15 years, and released the final rule this week, which will kick in NEXT winter. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez spoke with Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk, who says many parks see the winter as a time to “rest” after busy summer visitation.
