In NW states, federal campgrounds start closing in late sept, you will find few if any open. Same with many RV parks, and county campgrounds. In Oregon the majority of state parks campgrounds have at least some of the sites open year round. A few are closed in the winter. But given your route, you won't be in Oregon. Washington has at least some of the statepark campgrounds open in the winter. I think there are some RV parks open year round in the Spokane/western Idaho area in the winter. There are few if any between missoula and spokane open in the winter.

Going north from yellowstone there may be RV spots open in Bozeman and/or Missoula. More than likely in the larger (for the area) cities are a combo RVparks/mobile home parks, sometimes of pretty questionable reputation. Open year round because 1/2 or more of the "park" is permanent mobile homes.

Drove from Ft Worth to Jackson WY couple years back in January. I-80 was closed a couple of times because of high winds blowing semis' over. It was completely shut down about 10PM and didn't reopen till 3PM the next day. Not sure if they have the same problem farther north.

I believe the road condition map that I used on that trip was wyoroad.info.

If you decide to visit Mammoth in January-February you can count on night time temps below 0 degrees. Last year there were quite a few nights with temps of minus 20 and even lower than minus 30. Think twice about what this means for RV camping without an hook ups.
