Immerse yourself in Yellowstone’s winter landscape, where hot springs, deep snow, and crisp air combine to create a winter wonderland. This is your opportunity to live in the heart of wolf, bison, and elk country and to either hone or learn new ski or snowshoe skills as you gain a deeper understanding of the wildlife and geology of the park’s northern range. Excursions may include early morning wildlife watching. Each day will include explorations of quiet, snow-laden trails by ski or snowshoe. You’ll return to delicious catered meals and the warm camaraderie of your fellow adventurers. Catering included.
