Let us show you the finest way to experience a Yellowstone winter, at a snowshoer's pace from the Yellowstone Expeditions Yurt Camp. We invite you to join our small groups and experienced snowshoe guides to explore the quiet and solitude of the Yellowstone backcountry. Our multiday snowshoe excursions are based from the comfortable Snowshoer's "Yurt Camp" located only one half mile from the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Our two large yurts serve as the social center of the camp, while guests sleep in their own private, heated, tent cabins. Transportation to the camp from West Yellowstone, as well as to trailheads within the park, is by tracked "snow-vans".
Our package excursions include snowshoe guides, all meals, lodging (includes bedding and linens) at the yurt camp, and all snow-van transportation within the park. We also have snow shoe or xc ski rentals available.
From the Snowshoer's Camp, snowshoers can flat track the meadows of Cascade Creek, travel to several backcountry hot spring basins, xc ski the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, or just spend time watching the animals of Yellowstone. Join us this winter for great scenery, abundant wildlife, and some of the best snow that the Northern Rockies has to offer.
Yellowstone Expeditions also offers backcountry cross-country ski excursions and daily scenic snowcoach tours into Yellowstone National Park from West Yellowstone, MT. We also offer single day snowshoe tours within Yellowstone.
