With more than 150 inches of annual snowfall and nearly as many days of sunshine, West Yellowstone, Montana, has earned its place as one of the “Top 10 Winter Towns” (National Geographic Traveler).
With the entrance to Yellowstone National Park right in town, you can witness the park’s icons such as hot springs, mud pots, geysers such as Old Faithful, and wildlife like bison, elk, and wolves, all with the beauty of a blanket of soft snow.
Yellowstone’s West Entrance is open for oversnow travel through March 15, weather dependent. Daily tours and commercially guided snowcoach and snowmobile trips are available from West Yellowstone to must-see attractions including Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.
