Explore Yellowstone on Skis!
Experience “Wonderland” with the park’s premier tour company
What better way can you imagine to enjoy Yellowstone National Park in winter than on cross-country skis? Yellowstone Vacations offers a variety of ski and snowshoe programs for our winter visitors. Whether a ski drop or a full day custom ski tour, we are here to cater to your needs.
Yellowstone has hundreds of miles of machine groomed and skier groomed trails offering a terrific variety of scenery for all skill levels. The Park sets a ski track on each side of the groomed snowcoach/snowmobile trails offering us interesting opportunities for ski drops and long distance touring. Your custom tour can include segments of our regular interpretive snowcoach tours with guided walks to geysers, mud pots and hot springs. Wildlife...of course!
You can also enjoy the world class Rendezvous ski trails (30K+) at West Yellowstone, or spend a couple of days exploring the many trails in Yellowstone’s quiet northwest corner.
Our Brandin’ Iron Inn (across the street from Yellowstone Park) offers easy access to both Yellowstone and the local trails. Enjoy the convenience of our Nordic ski waxing room and relax in our hot tubs after your day of skiing. Perfect for a long weekend or full week of skiing exploration!
Our coaches feature coolers and ski racks to carry your lunches and skis. We offer coaches from 6 passengers up to 30 passengers to accomodate small to large groups.
Let us drop you (and pick you up) any time during our daily tours on specific routes designed to maximize your ski time. Your guest service representative and/or your tour guide can help you plan the ski portion of your tour
Private Ski Tours
Schedule a custom tour on one of our warm and toasty snowcoaches for a full day of skiing with one of our Park ski guides. Or, we can transport you to and from the trailhead where you can ski on your own. We'll assist you in planning your trip to match your skill level and interests.
Yellowstone in winter is amazing. We look forward to the chance to share the experience with you.
