I've ridden Yellowstone in the spring - prior to the park opening for automobiles. I was planning to do it again this year, but late snowstorms made it a moot point. Most years the park has about a 10-day period in late April when the roads are plowed but still closed to cars. Now THAT is the time to do it. One trip, I do not believe I saw another person - not even a park vehicle. I road along Yellowstone Lake with giant ice floes smashed up on the shore from a winter's worth of storms - but all under a sapphire sky with pleasant temperatures. (The Lake Road is no longer an option.) Still, if the weather is good next April, it is a chance of a lifetime.

Are facilities like the cabins and restaurants open in the spring? This trip would not be so bad for me in the Spring, if I knew I had a warm place to sleep at night.
