Snow in Yellowstone

With winter just around the corner, you may be thinking you’ve missed out on your chance to visit Yellowstone National Park this year. Fortunately, we’re happy to tell you that there is still plenty to do in Yellowstone once the temperature drops and snow hits the ground. In fact, there are plenty of unique activities you can take part in throughout the winter that you can’t experience during any other time of the year.


One of the best reasons to visit Yellowstone in the coming months is to go winter camping. Learning how to camp in the snow can be incredibly fun, as long as you have the right gear and clothing! Few places in the world look more beautiful in winter than Yellowstone, and camping in the park is a great way to experience it up close.


Throughout the winter, you will also have the opportunity to go on full-day winter wolf safaris. Available beginning in December, you will be able to watch the wolves of Yellowstone interact in their natural habitat. But wolves aren’t the only animals you’ll see during a winter safari. You might also see coyote, bighorn sheep, bison, elk, and other animals that call Yellowstone home in the winter.


If you prefer venturing out into the snow, you may enjoy a Yellowstone snowshoe safari. Equipped with snowshoes, you will be able to easily traverse areas of the park that are covered in feet of snow. Along the way you will see some amazing sights and sounds, stop for delicious snacks and warm drinks, and overall have a great time.


These are just some of the many things that make Yellowstone a great place to visit each and every winter!
