Join one of the certified guides in the Montana Backcountry Guides team on a cross-country ski day in the famous Yellowstone National Park. This program can be tailored to skiers’ skill level and background.


1 Day

Jan - Mar, Dec



Whether you are an advanced backcountry skier or a first-timer, this trip is for you! Its wildness and remoteness make Yellowstone National Park one of the most unique winter backcountry sites in the world.

Yellowstone is the first national park in the U.S. and in the whole world, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It extends over 8,983 km² (3,468.4 sq mi) in the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Known for its wildlife and geothermal features, Yellowstone contains beautiful lakes, canyons, rivers, waterfalls, and mountain ranges, as well as unique species of plants and wild animals.

Cross-country skiing is a classic winter activity in the park. Yellowstone features hundreds of miles of outstanding backcountry terrain for all levels. Therefore, this outing can be tailored to fit participants’ skill level and previous experience.

During the day, we will try several northern trails between the Mammoth Hot Springs area and the park’s northeast entrance near Cooke City, Montana. Along the way, the guide will provide participants with basic cross-country skiing skills and will share some curious facts of Yellowstone’s winter ecology and rich natural history.

The park’s elevations range from 2,100 to 3,000 meters (7,000-10,000 ft). Hill slopes offer deep snowpack tracks between snowy forests and frozen waterfalls, among free-roaming foxes, elk, American bison and gray wolves.

If you are looking for other winter activities in the park, I recommend the snowshoeing day in Yellowstone National Park.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
