Snowcoach Transportation

Round-trip snowcoach transportation is available daily from Mammoth to Old Faithful Snow Lodge and can be reserved through the reservation office by calling 307-344-7311. As space is limited on snowcoaches and the luggage coach, each guest going to Old Faithful Snow Lodge to stay overnight is limited to two pieces of luggage plus a small carry-on and cross-country ski/snowshoe equipment for each guest. The carry-on should be small enough to travel on the passenger’s lap (camera bag, purse, diaper bag, small daypack) as interior storage is not available on most snowcoaches. Hard-sided luggage is advised.

Per federal law, pets (with the exception of service dogs) are not allowed on buses or snowcoaches.

There will be a $25 fee for each bag exceeding 50 pounds and for each additional bag beyond two per snowcoach traveler.

While the snowcoaches are heated, sightseeing stops, where passengers leave the coach, necessitate warm footwear and warm layered clothing.

Skiing & Snowshoeing

Get out in the fresh air and explore Yellowstone. Winter provides an entirely different experience in the park and it is not to be missed. Whether you’re practicing your triple axle on the Mammoth skating rink, or observing the Mammoth Terraces on skis, Yellowstone can help create a winter adventure for you to create a truly memorable vacation.

The Bear Den Ski Shop
If you are planning a winter visit be sure to visit the Bear Den Gift Shop for ski and snowshoe rental and instruction, clothing, sundries and information. The expert staff can help you plan your day on the trails with information on snow conditions, ski shuttles, and tours.

Winter Weather

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.
