Play in the Snow

Snow blankets rolling hills while conifer trees grow along the ridge.
Snow blankets the park in winter, making a winter visit far different than visiting in the summer.

Yellowstone National Park is a special place, and winter is a wonderful time to experience just how special it is. When winter snows descend on the park, many of the normal recreational opportunities are no longer available. However, this seasonal change provides new recreational opportunities to emerge: skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and riding a snowcoach.
