A Winter's Trek to Yellowstone
It could simply be the aura that surrounds Yellowstone, or the remoteness of this rugged park, but a winter’s journey here is like none other in the park system.
Simply watching Old Faithful erupt into the teeth of a snowstorm, strolling the steam-flocked boardwalk through the Upper Geyser Basin, gazing into the azure beauty of Morning Glory Spring, or standing on the lip of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone are sufficient to enjoy a day in Yellowstone.
Yet you also can lash snowshoes or cross-country skis to your feet and venture into the forest, enroll in a “Lodging and Learning” program that features wildlife viewing and guided snowshoe or ski treks to Tower Falls, build a five-day adventure around daily ski excursions to such places as Blacktail Plateau, the Lamar Valley, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, or sign on for the “Family Winter Holiday” package best suited for families with children 8 to 12. This package, new this winter, blends animal tracking and wildlife watching with photography, skiing and snowshoeing plus a snowcoach trip to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
These and other packages, which start as low as $99 per night, can be found at this site or by calling 866-439-7375.
