LARAMIE, Wyo. — Wyoming Highway 130 through the high country of the Snowy Range has officially closed for the season.

Due to drifting and blowing snow, Wyoming Department of Transportation crews in Laramie and Saratoga decided current road conditions warranted closing the section of the highway for the season.

Also known as the Snowy Range Scenic Byway, the 12-mile section of WYO 130 tops out at more than 10,800 feet in elevation and closes annually each fall when lack of travel and deep snow accumulations make plowing the highway impractical.

The closure spans mile markers 36–48, from the Green Rock trailhead in the east to just above Ryan Park in the west.
