Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing
Yellowstone has miles of trails for the adventurous skier and snowshoer.
Yellowstone National Park
Snowmobiles & Snowcoaches
Every winter from mid-December to mid-March, most* of the roads in Yellowstone are buried in snow and can only be navigated by tracked or low pressure tire vehicles capable of traveling through snow. Many authorized companies offer snowmobile and snowcoach tours and shuttles. Individuals can also enter the lottery for our non-commercially guided snowmobile program. The lottery opens in September: remaining dates or cancellations become available in November on a first-come, first-served basis.
