JACKSON, Wyo. — According to the forecast, winter will make its debut this weekend and fall weather is on its way out.

Fall in the Tetons can often feel like a fleeting time, but this year’s season has felt especially prolonged, with beautiful sunny days, crisp mornings and evenings and bright fall foliage. This is also a reminder that there is only two more weeks to visit Yellowstone National Park, as several roads will close for the season on Nov. 1.

Conditions permitting, roads will open to over-snow travel in Yellowstone by snowmobile and snowcoach at 8 a.m. on Dec. 15. Grand Teton National Park is also winding down its operations in preparation for winter.
