Join the park and Xanterra Travel Collection in Yellowstone for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours on August 30, 2019, from 10-1 p.m. in front of the hotel to celebrate the reopening of this historic gathering spot.
Event details include:
- 10-10:30 a.m. listen to remarks from Yellowstone National Park’s superintendent, the project manager, and Xanterra’s general manager.
- 11-1 p.m. take a tour of the refurbished hotel led by Xanterra. Tours start in the hotel lobby.
- 11-1 p.m. visit with the NPS in the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel Map Room about the carefully restored Reamer Map.
- 11:30 a.m. meet a park ranger in the hotel lobby for a one-hour Calling in the Cavalry Walk around Fort Yellowstone.
Funded by the NPS, the four-year renovation of the historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel totaled about $30 million. The project is a great example of Yellowstone's ongoing efforts to reduce deferred maintenance and improve the condition of important historic resources. In 2018, Yellowstone reported a deferred maintenance backlog exceeding $586 million. Park managers believe this is a conservative estimate. The park and its partners will continue making significant investments in a wide range of infrastructure projects in upcoming years.
