A spectacular winter visit to Yellowstone National Park delivers memories to last a lifetime! Visits to this prestigious park are restricted during this magical time of year by the National Park Service, resulting in a uniquely exclusive experience. You’ll travel to the park via snowcoach - an over-snow vehicle that’s thrilling in itself! With wheels that are replaced by tracks and skis, you’ll travel in heated comfort to see a world that’s normally hidden from view. In fact, snowcoaches and snowmobiles are the only way you can explore Yellowstone in Winter, making it all the more unforgettable! From snowy landscapes and steaming geyser basins to amazing wildlife, this is the very best time to visit. Just be prepared for crowds! No, not the two legged kind you find during the summer season, but the four legged ones that emerge en-masse during the quiet of winter! You’ll encounter throngs of bison, elk, pronghorn antelope and deer gathering near geysers and geothermal areas where the snow is melted and there’s ample grazing. Imagine encountering herds of bison as they ‘travel’ along unplowed roads in search of food and water. Keep your camera handy as you’ll be just yards from these massive creatures! Your Yellowstone in Winter tour continues with a two night stay at Jackson Hole and a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Elk Reserve. Surrounded by the spectacularly rugged Tetons, you’ll love your time in lively Jackson Hole! You’ll continue to travel through the Tetons on your way to Salt Lake City, stopping near Park City where you’ll see some venues utilized during the 2002 Winter Olympics. Your tour concludes as you attend a weekly radio broadcast performance by the famed Mormon Tabernacle Choir! What a delightful way to wrap up your Yellowstone in Winter adventure!
