A taste of winter weather swept into the northern Rockies Sunday into early Monday where snow was reported in parts of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Above 10,000 feet in Yellowstone National Park, there was enough new snow to build a snowman.


Look what we found on top Mt. Washburn (elev. 10,268 ft) in Yellowstone Nat’l Park this morning.

 It was enough to close Beartooth Pass Monday on the Wyoming side, typically open from late May through mid-October, cutting off the most direct route from Red Lodge, Montana, to Yellowstone National Park.


A light coating of snow could be seen on an Idaho DOT webcam at Lost Trail Pass Monday morning.
