Yellowstone Winter Lodging
Yellowstone National Park is mesmerizing during the bright summer days but the national park is also just as breathtaking when wrapped in a winter blanket. Winter in Yellowstone offers a more intimate experience, fascinating snowy landscapes, frosty animals, and two lodging facilities that will keep you plenty warm when it’s time to turn in for the night.

Old Faithful Snow Lodge & Cabins
You can tell by its name; the Snow Lodge was built to be a winter haven that serves as an inviting home base from which to launch adventures deeper into the park’s interior. Nestled in the Upper Geyser Basin, in winter it is magical in itself! Please note: the Snow Lodge is only accessible in winter via over-snow transportation.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel & Cabins – CLOSED for Next Two Winter Season
Limited Services to Remain Available at Mammoth
As part of the ongoing improvements to park facilities, the Mammoth Hotel will be undergoing a two-phase renovation. For more information, click here. While lodging is not available in Mammoth for the next two winters, Gardiner, MT is only 5 miles north of Mammoth, and located at the North Entrance to Yellowstone. Basing in Gardiner, guests still have convenient access to the great wildlife watching and scenery that’s found in Lamar Valley and Yellowstone’s Northern Range. And the road from Gardiner through Lamar Valley is plowed in the winter, making it that much easier to experience this incredible area of the park. For more information on lodging, restaurants and other winter services in Gardiner, please visit yellowstonewinter.org.

What You Can Expect
Yellowstone National Park is an authentic American experience, which should keep every guest and visitor deeply engaged and spending time exploring the park. With this in mind, we do not have televisions or radios in the rooms or cabins, but telephones are available in most hotel and lodge rooms. Cabins do not have telephones. Wheelchair accessible accommodations are available. Please note that all park accommodations are non-smoking.
Severe winter weather can occasionally cause the National Park Service to temporarily close park entrances and/or roads. This may result in delays or cancellations of in-park transportation. While every effort will be made to meet our transportation schedules, there may be times when closures prevent us from doing so.
Guests are responsible for any costs (including but not limited to additional lodging, transportation, meals and airline fees) related to such delays. NPS road information is available online or 307-344-2117.
