Visibility on the highway dropped to 100 feet on Tuesday due to blowing snow above timberline, and the storm left drifts of 6 to 8 feet in places. The road is now clear, according to a news release issued by the park’s public information officer, Kyle Patterson.

Reservations are not required to enter the park between 5 p.m. and 6 a.m. Entry reservations are now being taken for dates through July 31. Reservations for August will be accepted starting July 1.
