Yellowstone In Winter

Season: December - March

"There is nothing so American as our national parks... The fundamental idea behind the parks... is that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of all of us."

– Franklin D Roosevelt

XC Ski & Snowshoe

9 Miles from our farm. 

Yellowstone has miles of trails for the adventurous skier and snowshoer. Though track is set only on a few trails, all unplowed roads and trails are open to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

 

Enjoying the silent trekking into this great wilderness while it slumbers is truly an experience to enjoy. 

 

Snow Coach or Snowmobile

81 Miles from our farm. 

Every year in early November, most park roads close to regular traffic in preparation for the winter season. The only exception is the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and the northeast entrance, which is open to regular traffic all year. Once enough snow accumulates (usually by mid-December), roads open to “oversnow” travel only. This means the only way to visit Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and other popular destinations during winter is by guided snowmobile or snowcoach, or through the non-commercially guided snowmobile program. Winter travel hours are 7 am-9 pm.
