The enjoyment of Yellowstone and its unique resources during the wintertime has drawn deep and passionate interest in the park for nearly 80 years. The following pages and links within them have been assembled in sequence to help those interested better understand the past, present and possible future of winter operations in America's first national park. This virtual "toolbox" of information contains glimpses of the various visions - ours as well as yours - that are continually influenced and informed by the vast amounts of history, science, legislation, legal decisions and other winter-use related information that planning efforts throughout the past two decades have generated. This library begins with an overview of Yellowstone in winter, followed by a comprehensive history and background of winter use and the current status of operations and planning.
