You cannot drive into Yellowstone National Park through the west entrance in your own vehicle at this time.

The only Yellowstone National Park road that is open to regular vehicle traffic year-round is the road from the north entrance at Gardiner to the northeast entrance at Cooke City. These are the only entrances open to regular vehicles at this time.

The west entrance to Yellowstone and select roads within the park opened to guided snowcoach and snowmobile tours on December 15th. Winter access through the west entrance of Yellowstone and into the interior of the park is via these guided trips only. This winter season is from December 15 to March 15.

The west gate to Yellowstone will reopen to regular vehicle traffic again on April 19.
