Beartooth Plowing begins

Crews have started clearing the 11.4 miles of snowpacked roadway on Hwy 212. The road, which closes each winter because of excessive snow and adverse winter conditions, typically opens by the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.

Snow drifts are above 30 feet in the higher elevations.

Watch the Beartooth plowing diary and track our progress.
