EXPLORE: Wyoming Is An Untouched Winter Wonderland
Wyoming is a big state with few people.
That's a big plus if you want to get out there and explore an untouched winter wonderland.
There is so much to do no matter what direction you head.
Now that we are heavily into winter, and the weather cycles have shifted again, bringing back the snow, there is something to do in every part of Wyoming's winter wonderland.
The website Travelzoo has featured Wyoming's winter wonderland, region by region.
Dramatic mountain ranges; the world’s highest concentration of geysers; Old West history; and diverse wildlife (like grizzlies, wolves and bison) may be what make Wyoming iconic, but that's merely the start of what you’ll find here. During the winter, this wild western state is blanketed in snow, ushering in a thrilling lineup of activities and events alongside the mild, slow-paced relaxation that’s available along the way.
