Yellowstone offers miles of groomed and skier tracked trails that lead past frosty woods, steaming hot springs, and snow-covered meadows for all levels. Go gliding or snowshoeing within sight of a bison herd of striding near elk tracks. Whether you’re a beginner or been skiing or snowshoeing for years, it will be an adventure you’ll never forget. Rent items a la carte or consider a package. Rentals for three or more days will receive a 20% discount. Sorry, we do not take advanced reservations for gear.
