Beartooth Pass closes early ahead of holiday season

Beartooth Pass has been closed for the season. The pass between Red Lodge and Vista Point had originally been scheduled to close during the upcoming holiday weekend, but the Montana Department of Transportation announced the seasonal closure Tuesday morning, just ahead of a winter storm calling for significant snowfall across the region, especially at higher elevations during the next few days. The pass is scheduled to reopen next spring on Memorial Day Weekend.
