Visiting Yellowstone in Winter
A winter visit to Yellowstone National Park will give you lasting memories of snowy landscapes, steaming geyser basins, and incomparable wildlife viewing.
Take a look here for cross country skiing trail information, Winter Ranger-Led Programs and other favorite winter activities available in the park.
If you are looking for some place to stay, eat, fuel up, get help or camp during the winter, give our Winter Services page a look. One popular destination is watching Old Faithful during a tour of the park. Our park Rangers also offer programs during the winter season.
