In winter, the park’s interior is accessible only by commercial over-snow transportation, and Yellowstone’s snowcoaches are essentially the ultimate 21st-century (heated) sleigh. These fascinating vehicles travel over groomed snow-covered roads, the same roads you’d drive yourself in the summer. The snowcoaches are driven by our seasoned guides, so every mile, regardless of destination, is a guided tour of Yellowstone’s extraordinary winter scenery.
Over-snow transportation is required TO AND FROM Old Faithful Snow Lodge during the winter season. Snowcoach transportation is available daily between Mammoth to Old Faithful Snow Lodge and can be reserved online or by calling 307-344-7311 (reservations are required each direction).
Note: Pets (with the exception of service dogs) are not allowed on buses or snowcoaches; this is a federal law.

Be sure to dress in layers and wear appropriate footwear. While the snowcoach is heated, you will be stopping outside and encountering all types of weather along the way.
As space is limited, each guest is allotted two pieces of luggage plus a small carry-on bag and a pair of cross-country skis or a pair of snowshoes. The carry-on bag 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. Luggage, equipment, and other large items will be transported between Mammoth and Old Faithful by a separate luggage vehicle. All luggage should have the ability to be closed securely, preventing any items from falling out of the bag. The bag should be made of a durable material (Plastic garbage bags, grocery bags, paper sacks, and reusable plastic/vinyl/canvas bags are not recommended). Hard-sided luggage is advised. There is a $25 fee for each bag exceeding 50 pounds and for each additional bag beyond two per snowcoach passenger.
