Yellowstone in Winter

Explore by Snowmobile or Snowcoach


February 18-22, 2018

Sun / Thu – 5 Days

From the wide roads winding through Yellowstone National Park to the hushed trails that snake through nearby Caribou-Targhee National Forest, the vast number of routes available in southwest Montana makes it the Snowmobile Capital of the World. The variety of marked trails attracts all levels and types – beginners, thrill-seekers and casual sightseers. Spend one day in Yellowstone National Park, motoring along the same roads that are packed with cars in the summer. Only now, no wheeled vehicles are allowed in the park and the crowds are minimal, allowing for optimum viewing of the grandeur of the snow-covered landscape. The other day of snowmobiling puts the focus on action on trails outside the park.

Want to see Yellowstone in winter but prefer to sightsee in heated, comfortable transportation? Go by snowcoach – a specially adapted vehicle designed to travel throughout Yellowstone Park’s winter wonderland. Spend one day touring to Old Faithful and one day to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. An experienced Yellowstone guide will enrich your knowledge of the animals, geysers and geological formations.

No matter which way you choose to view the park, watch for the Yellowstone wolves, bison, nesting bald eagles and the famous Yellowstone elk herds that make this Ambassadair trip popular year after year.

Tue, Feb 20: Another full day of guided snowmobiling or touring by snowcoach to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Snowmobilers hit the trails outside the park and spend the day zooming through tall pine trees and playing in open fields. Or you may go on your own for the day, taking to one of the trails outside the park safe to navigate without a guide. (B)

Wed, Feb 21: An extra day to this favorite trip allows for independent exploration of the area. Visit the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, see a wilderness film at the IMAX Theatre, shop the quaint stores, try cross-country skiing or, if two days of snowmobiling wasn’t enough, consider adding an optional excursion. This evening, share your escapades with your fellow travelers at a Farewell Party at the hotel. (B,D)
