Anyone going on the 2/1 program who will be spending the 6th in Bozeman? Where are you going to stay?

James Graves Oct 27, 2014 at 04:45 PM

It looks like my flight from LAX will not arrive in Bozeman early enough to get the shuttle to W. Yellowstone.
I will arrive BZN on the 7th and take the shuttle to W. Yellowstone on the 8th.
Anybody in the same situation and have advice? with advice. Jim Graves

I am flying into BZN on Saturday, Feb 8 @ ~1:30pm via Delta from ATL. I will probably stay at the Quality Inn/Belgrade & take Greater Valley taxi to West Yellowstone on Sunday. I have requested a roommate--anyone else??

Welcome to one of the several UM Western Road Scholar programs. Now in our 35th year, UM Western is proud to offer a wide variety of Road Scholar programs that inspire lifelong learning. This program along with several of our other programs will offer experiential learning and exploration of the magnificent Yellowstone ecosystem. Enjoy winter's sparkling whiteness, steaming thermals and ice-rimmed rivers as you venture into Yellowstone on snowcoach and snowmobile. Continue your discovery as you snow shoe and cross country ski in this winter wonderland. If you have any questions, please contact us by calling 406-683-7302 or email roadscholar@umwestern.edu.
