Yoho West Gate reopening
Parks Canada will reopen the Yoho West Gate seasonally from June 23, 2014 through to the end of September this year. As the western entrance to Yoho, Jasper, and Banff national parks, the Yoho West Gate will provide a convenient location for east bound motorists to purchase entry passes and receive information about the national parks.
The gate is a “cashless” facility that will operate only during daylight hours. When the gate is closed motorists may continue purchasing park passes at the Yoho National Park Visitor Centre in Field or the British Columbia Visitor Centre in Golden, BC. Unlike the Banff East Gate, the Yoho West Gate is a voluntary gate, located in a pull off adjacent to the Trans-Canada Highway. Eastbound through traffic will continue to enter the park uninhibited.
