I'll know better when I'll get there this month once I see some answers
What are know the road conditions over the Beartooth pass early Sept?
Got new motorcycle tyres & planning on going East starting from Pacific west coast and should hit Beartooth approx Sept 5th (2016). Enroute to Detroit, solo, on Suzuki 1000Vstrom.
I concur with the two answers that I just read. I was there August 11-14 and conditions were fabulous but things can change there quickly. I would suspect that conditions would be good on September 5 but do dress warmly as it will cool off dramatically when you reach over 10,000 feet. The drive is really amazing! Have fun!
Keep checking road conditions for US-212 at Montana dot.
We were also there in July when it closed due to winter storm conditions. Luckily it cleared the day we planned to drive the pass to Red Lodge. It is amazing and definitely worth seeing. Do dress warmly. Hope you have nice weather.
When traveling over Beartooth Pass you have to be ready for any type of weather. This year the second week of July the pass was closed due to icy conditions. When we traveled over the pass to the rally in red Lodge the third week in July the pass was beautiful. But on the poker run the Saturday of that weekend we got hit with rain, sleet and ice pellets for a few minutes. So you really do have to have clothes and equipment for all conditions. It is worth it though because it is one of the most beautiful passes I have ever seen!
