Buck the trend and come to Yellowstone this winter! Not only are the cold months beautiful and laden with opportunities for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, it’s a wonderful time for wildlife watching as the ever-present snow drives large mammals into the valleys and thermal areas to search for food. You may see North America’s largest herd of free-roaming bison, as well as upwards of 20,000 elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, moose, deer, and possibly gray wolves. Otters can be seen frolicking in the snow banks and swans drift lazily across misty pools. You will also be greeted by steaming hot pools, spectacular geysers and bubbling mud pots. It’s a unique perspective on America’s first National Park.

Degree of Difficulty –    

Upon arrival at Bozeman Airport, you will be met and begin your 85 mile drive to the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park in Gardner, Montana. Continue five miles south into Wyoming and your accommodation. In the early days, Yellowstone’s visitors began their park explorations at Mammoth Hot Springs where the thermal waters, shimmering with a rainbow of colors, were believed to have curative powers. Now, the main attraction is the upper and lower terraces created by on-going deposits of travertine in the form of white rocks, creating a constantly changing living sculpture where each photograph captures a new image time and again. Situated at the base of Mt. Everts, the Hotel was built in the early 1900s and includes a spacious art deco lobby. After this evening’s welcome dinner, you may want to relax in the Map Room – named for a wall covered by a massive inlaid map of the United States. MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS HOTEL.
