Park concessioners operate lodging and provide other services, including evening programs, snow-coach tours, guided ski and snow-shoe tours, guided snowmobile tours, and wildlife bus tours. Detailed information is available at the visitor centers, warming huts, and front desks of hotels or by calling Xanterra Parks & Resorts at (307) 344-7311.
A schedule of winter activities led by concessions staff can be found online on the Concessioner-led Programs page.
For information about activities originating outside the park call the local chambers of commerce.
We also maintain a web page that lists commercial service providers with permits to do business in Yellowstone in the winter.
