The Mammoth General store is open seven days a week and offers food and beverages. Old Faithful Snowlodge Geyser Grill and Mammoth Terrace Grill are open for the winter season.
Camping & Lodging
Mammoth Campground is the only campground open at this time. Snowlodge at Old Faithful is the only lodge open in the park (accessible only by snowcoach or snowmobile). You can find more information about what is open for the winter season on our Winter in Yellowstone page.
Snowfall varies greatly throughout the park. The Natural Resource Conversation Service offers an interactive map that displays current data on snow depth, snow water equivalent, and more from SNOTEL stations in and around Yellowstone. Avalanche forecasts and other winter safety information are available from the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center and the Bridger Teton Avalanche Center.
Groomed Ski Trails
Xanterra Parks and Resorts grooms ski trails in several areas in the park. Find grooming status updates on their website: Yellowstone National Park Lodges.
Rivers & StreamsBoiling River is open. Temporary closures are always possible. Water levels have dropped; always use caution and be safe.
When staff are available, geyser predictions are published via Twitter @GeyserNPS, through our Geyser app (available at iTunes or Google Play), and by recorded message at 307-344-2751 (option 2). Predictions are also available on the GeyserTimes website. Learn more about geyser activity.
Always be cautious around all wildlife. Winter is a stressful time as animals work hard to get enough calories to last through the winter season. If you are making wildlife move, you are too close.
