Low snowfall and the recession are being blamed for modest gains this winter in visits to Yellowstone National Park.
From December to March, the park saw 93,838 visitors, an 8
percent increase from last year. Those numbers are still down from the 2007-08 season when the park saw 99,975 visitors.
Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash says snowmobile and snow coach
traffic were bright spots in the park's winter visits, especially at the South Entrance, which serves visitors from Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park.
