Crews Encounter Little Snow Plowing Beartooth Pass This Year
By Matt Schauer


Here is a short preview for tomorrow’s The Montana Outdoor Radio Show from Brett French, Outdoors Editor for the Billings Gazette:

If the snow sitting atop the Beartooth Pass is any indication, this could be a sad water year for anglers and boaters. I visited the pass just south of Red Lodge on Wednesday and according to Steve Reed, who has been plowing the route for 13 years, the snowpack is the worst he’s ever seen. The view up there is really stark compared to last year when the snow stood more than 10 feet deep near the state line. This year, there were maybe a couple of feet in the ditches, many of the surrounding mountain meadows were bare. The photo above is from last year.
