Ride a snowcoach to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and encounter eons of geologic processes. Learn to ride a snowmobile on park roads, view diverse habitats and observe bison, waterfowl, bald eagles and coyotes. Experience churning geothermal activity at Old Faithful and Fountain Paint Pots, discover animal tracks and analyze sign and learn winter sports and skills on informative, naturalist-led adventures.


• A snowmobile excursion into sulfur-scented geyser basins showcases Old Faithful's steaming glory, plopping mudpots, fumaroles and sizzling hot springs.
• Ride a snowcoach to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, where you’re met with sheer, painted walls and the ice-columned majesty of Lower Falls.
• Other over-the-snow ventures on cross-country skis and snowshoes reveal a landscape locked in winter's frozen embrace.
