Join one of the certified guides in the Montana Backcountry Guides team on an exciting snowshoeing day in the famous Yellowstone National Park. It is a great way to explore the park’s backcountry in winter, and anyone can do it!
Whether you are a cross-country enthusiast or you would like to try a fun, new outdoor activity, this snowshoeing tour is for you!
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, and mountain ranges, as well as unique species of plants and wild animals.
Winter is a great time in Yellowstone. The crowds have gone and the snow has covered the park’s vast meadows and the stunning Rocky Mountains (4,401 m) on the north, creating a magical scenery.
This snowshoeing day tour is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the park’s natural beauty completely on your own. Yellowstone offers hundreds of miles of remote backcountry trails, along snowy forests, frozen waterfalls, and steaming geysers and hot springs. We will take several northern tracks 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 the fundamentals of snowshoeing and will explain some interesting aspects of Yellowstone’s winter ecology and rich natural history.
Winter is also the best time to spot gray wolves, when their dark coats stand out against the bright snow. If we are lucky, we might also see buffalos, elks, bison, mule deer, and coyotes!
Snowshoeing provides easy access to remote locations with almost no risk. Therefore, this tour is open to everyone, without any specific fitness level or previous experience requirement.
