Want To Know How To Go Snowmobiling In Yellowstone This Winter?
Some people think that when the snow falls your chance to visit America's First National Park ends until spring, NOPE! As a matter of fact, the views and fun is enhanced during the winter.
If you're looking to take out on the roads of Yellowstone when they're covered in snow, there are a couple ways it can happen. To go by yourself, you have to apply for the Non-Commercially Guided Snowmobile Access Program permits during the month of August. A little pre-planning is needed here. If you're looking to have a guided snowmobile experience or if you're you want to see the park in the winter but stay warm while riding in a Snowcoach, both of those are possible.
There are about a dozen companies that specialize in your winter time Yellowstone motorized enjoyment. After checking out the list of Yellowstone National Park approved snowmobile and snowcoach companies, there are day tours, multi-day tours and even overnight tours to choose from with price points a few hundred dollars up to a few thousand dollars.
Obviously, you have to have snow on the ground to be able to take one of these incredibly adventurous tours, so most don't start running until mid to late December or January. One thing I noticed is they seem to book up quickly, so you may want to look into booking yours.
If snowmobiling isn't your thing but you still want to visit the park with the snow falling, you can always go cross country skiing or snowshoeing or even just go for a day trip to play in the snow.
