Two weeks after Yellowstone opened for the winter season, enough snow has fallen to allow snowmobile and snow coach travel.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports ( http://bit.ly/tQ4bi3) that snow vehicles were allowed in the national park starting Saturday.
Only wheeled and rubber-tracked vehicles had been allowed on park roads since the Dec. 15 winter opening, but enough snow fell in the last week of December to allow steel-tracked machines.
The road between Mammoth Hot Springs is still restricted to rubber-tracked snow coaches until more snow falls.
