Poll: Winter Use in Yellowstone
What's the best solution for managing over-the-snow vehicles in Yellowstone?
According to my latest poll, nearly 41 percent of the 69 viewers who took the poll say snowcoaches are the only way to go, while 36 percent say there should be no over-the-snow vehicles in the park, period.
Interesting results, especially when you consider just 10 percent favored the park's preferred solution: as many as 720 snowmobiles per day, along with 78 snowcoaches. Thirteen percent favored 250 snowmobiles and 78 snowcoaches per day.
Of course, one option I overlooked but probably should have been included would be to plow the park's roads in the winter to allow wheeled traffic.
