The abundance of geysers, hot springs and other thermal features contribute to Yellowstone’s unique winter environment. Moisture from those thermal features combined with the cold winter temperatures create some amazing landscapes. Because a blanket of white covers the ground, most of the larger mammals are easier to spot making winter a wildlife watchers’ dream. This educational adventure will include in-depth exploration (sometimes by cross-country skis or snowshoes, professional instruction provided) in a variety of winter habitats, including Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. View the itinerary.
Activity Level – Brisk hiking, snowshoeing, or skiing up to 5 miles per day with climbs up to 500 feet, including some trail-breaking in snow.
Lodging & Learning programs are offered in partnership with the Yellowstone Forever Institute.
