How do you guys feel about a trip to Yellowstone, Glacier, and Jackson Hole during the last two weeks of September?? What's the chance of having snow?? Thanks for your help.

Not sure, but coincidentally we are also trying to plan a trip from MS to Yellowstone in that same timeframe.

Best we can determine it should be a good time before the snow hits.

Glacier I'd think twice about but we do Yellowstone all the time. Sometimes you get a surprise snow but it doesn't last. One year we were in Red Lodge preparing to take the Beartooth Highway into the park but it got 12" of snow overnight so we had to go the long way around (320 mile detour). A given pass may be closed for a day if a normal snowfall occurs but generally, you'll be okay. The key is too leave a loose schedule and be prepared to improvise should the weather mess you up for a day or two. The odds are only 1 out of 5 that you'll need that but it's good to have a "plan B" laid out ahead of time so you're not stuck wondering what to do if it does happen.

The wildlife in Yellowstone and Jackson Hole are excellent beginning mid September so it's the best time for that. If the snow holds off my favorite entrance is over the Beartooth Highway (Chief Joseph = alternate backup route) with the exit from the park over the east entrance of Yellowstone or leave Grand Teton via Moran and head through the Wind River Range on the way out, either way crossing the Bighorns via US-16. For some Yellowstone/Grand Teton pictures check out my Yellowstone photo tour at www.RVcruzer.com if you'd like. That'll show you what you'll be missing if you don't go.

Mark, I just looked at your pictures. AWESOME!! I think we will probably go. We have been to Yellowstone a couple of times and I wanted to see Glacier but my wife's sister and her husband are going with us and can't get away until the middle of Sept. We may have to postpone Glacier. Thanks for your reply. Lon

We've been in Glacier in mid-late Sept. Weather was beautiful, except for snowing on going to the sun road near the summit. Next day it was pretty much gone.
