Winter Sports in and around Yellowstone


Winter is "high season" for Yellowstone recreation

Winter transforms the Yellowstone region into a crystal wonderland where the geologic "fire" that simmers just below the surface reacts with the ice and snow of the season. The juxtaposition is downright "steamy" at Yellowstone’s thermal basins and hot springs, which become dramatic magnets for wildlife seeking warmth and food.

Yellowstone area winter activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snow coach and snowmobile tours – and all of them offer great ways to get deep into the park. Take a scenic snow coach tour to Old Faithful, ski with winter wildlife, snowshoe around boiling mud pots, or spend an afternoon skiing the Rendezvous Ski Trails system. Winter is "high season" for Yellowstone recreation.
