    That sounds like exactly the kind of road segment where a driver would fall asleep from fatigue, boredom, or both. And additional rumble strips don’t seem to make much difference, either. Sometimes there’s only so much the state can do...

    Beartooth Pass opened for a brief time but is now closed again due to snow.

    From MTDOT:

    BEARTOOTH PASS IS COMPLETELY CLOSED ON MT-WY SIDES DUE TO VERY ADVERSE WINTER WEATHER OCCURRING ON THE PASS. THE PASS WILL BE CHECKED AGAIN SUN.MORN TO SEE IF IT CAN REOPEN AT LEAST PARTIALLY ON THE MT.SIDE. THIS STORM IS SUPPOSED TO LAST UNTIL MID-DAY SUNDAY. UPDATES WILL AGAIN BE ISSUED AS THEY OCCUR.

    Snow, in Red Lodge in May? No big surprise! The pass is generally not open until late June, I think they shoot for the 3rd week in June, but it has been earlier and later. One year the pass was cleared out, then socked in again for weeks and open for traffic the first part of July.

    A bunch of us go out there every year and have seen snow in Red Lodge in July. Another year we were riding up Beartoooth Pass and it started snowing pretty hard. The forecast on the pass said possible snow, but warmer and nice by noon. Many of us kept on going, riding in car tire tracks. 2-3 inches of snow in places. We got to the summit, the sun came out and it was a beautiful day.

    If you ride in that area be prepared for temps into the 20's, to over 100F. We have seen all temps, sometimes on the same trip!

    With an elevation of 5,500 ft, the weather is bound to be interesting.
