YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -- About four miles of roadway have been cleared by snow plows on the east side of Yellowstone National Park. The Wyoming Department of Transportation says crews are getting close to the avalanche zone near Sylvan Pass. They may need to temporarily stop plowing Wednesday afternoon when the weather warms and the risk of avalanches rises. Department spokesman Cody Beers says crews have been encountering snow between 3 to 4 feet deep. The town of Jackson and the Cody Chamber of Commerce are paying for park roads to be cleared this month because of federal budget cuts.
