Blowing and drifting snow has forced transportation officials to close Beartooth Pass near the Wyoming-Montana border. Ginny Bingaman, a receptionist with the Montana Department of Transportation, says U.S. Highway 212 between the Vista Point rest area in Montana and Long Lake in Wyoming was closed just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. She says it's not uncommon for wintry storms to blow through higher elevations in the area this time of year. Crews were plowing the snow Tuesday, but the highway is not expected to open until at least Wednesday morning.
