Snowstorm shuts down roads to Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National Parks on first day of summer

A snowstorm has temporarily shut down a popular mountain roadway leading to Yellowstone National Park as well as the scenic road through Rocky Mountain National Park on the first day of summer.

Beartooth Pass has been closed at the Montana-Wyoming state line since Thursday night. The winding Beartooth Highway reaches nearly 11,000 feet (3,350 meters) in elevation as it runs from the town of Red Lodge to the northeast entrance of Yellowstone, which is entering its busy season. 

Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park closed Friday, just over two weeks after it opened late for the season because of heavy snow this winter.The Denver Channel

25cm of snow in the Rockies and parts of British Columbia

Instead of abundant sunshine and pleasant temperatures, snowfall warnings have stretched across the higher elevations of the Rockies and into parts of the B.C. Interior this week.

While this early summer snow isn’t completely unheard of for the region, more than 20 cm this late in June seems to be pretty excessive even by the heartiest of standards.

Up to 25 cm had already fallen over higher terrain near Banff and Jasper by early Friday morning with another 10 cm expected before all’s said and done for the Icefield Parkway Highway 93.The weather channel
