Today December 15th, the west entrance of Yellowstone re-opens to a truly unique experience. Winter visitors enter the park only by over-the-snow means, either people-powered (snowshoe or cross country ski) or via snowcoach or snowmobile. Daily tours are available from West Yellowstone through businesses with Yellowstone Park permits, called ‘concessionaires’.

Commercially guided snowmobile trips travel over snow covered, groomed roads to popular destinations including Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. These vehicles travel on the same roads that you do in the summer over snow prepared by groomers. Read about it here!
