Yellowstone National Park is known around the world as a unique destination where geysers, lakes, waterfalls, and wildlife can be viewed in a setting unlike any other on Earth. While millions of people trip to Yellowstone National Park each year during the warm, sunny months of summer, the park also offers travelers a spectacular destination during the snowy winter season.

Summer months are usually crowded and busy with automobiles everywhere. Sometimes, traffic jams even occur in the park during summer when wildlife ventures onto the roadway.

 

In Yellowstone Park, the winter season is a completely different experience from the busy, chaotic summers. In winter, there is simply no place on Earth quite like Yellowstone Park.

Inside the park, visitors travel on the roads with snow coaches or snowmobiles to see geysers, wildlife, and spectacular ice formations created around waterfalls and various bodies of water. Snowmobiling inside the park is primarily a form of transportation. Outside the park in West Yellowstone, backcountry snowmobiling is a major source of fun and adventure.

Most winter visitors stay for several days, and they design their trip to include a combination of tours inside the park as well as backcountry snowmobiling out of West Yellowstone. A Yellowstone winter vacation is unlike anything you have ever experienced before, and it will leave you with special memories that you will hold dearly for the rest of your life.
