Winter never wears out its welcome in Montana’s Yellowstone Country. The pursuit of powder ends here—it’s everywhere and then some. We pile up over 400 inches of the fluffy white stuff every year in our alpine mecca of diverse terrain, both wild and tamed. It’s the land of big sky and big skiing. It’s the season of snow seekers and wonderland dreamers. And it’s where winter is yours for the taking. So get out, feel the crunch of snow underfoot, breathe in the cool, crisp air and leave your tracks on as many mountains as you can. Hibernation is for the bears.
Whether by ski, snowmobile, snowshoe or sleigh, there’s a winter getaway in this powder paradise and a park that’s altogether surreal—steaming geyser basins and thermal pools juxtaposed with pure white snow. West Yellowstone and Cooke City offer some of the world’s best snowmobiling and our small towns offer warm welcomes and friendly lodging.
