A harsh winter has resulted in a decline in winter visitation to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone National Park indicated that heavy early season snowfall that continued through the season is believed to be responsible for the drop in winter visitation in the park.

Overall visitor numbers for December 2010 through March 2011 were down just over 5% from last winter.

The decline came in the number of visitors who came by automobile, bus and RV through the park's north entrance which was off nearly 12% compared to the same period last year.
