National Park Winter Serenity from Bozeman to Jackson

Of course there's value in sharing. But having Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks all to ourselves seems pretty sweet. The sight of bison lumbering across the icy landscape. Otters fishing in semi-frozen streams. Maybe even a glimpse of a cautious gray wolf. A winter wonderland of epic proportions. We can't wait to share it with you.

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations & Service Standards

On this trip we stay at Old Faithful Snow Lodge. While this accommodation reflects the natural surroundings of the national parks and provides unparalleled access to the best activities in the area, it is simpler than is typical of Backroads lodging. The lodge has basic guest rooms that are not equipped with televisions. Please note that internet and cell phone service are extremely limited throughout the parks.

Hiking in Small Groups
The National Park Service limits the size of all groups in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Accordingly, you'll hike and snowshoe in small groups with Backroads leaders and local guides. We appreciate your cooperation with the parks' regulations.
Cold-Weather Attire
Winter weather in Yellowstone and Tetons can be among the coldest in the United States, but you can comfortably enjoy the outdoors if you're properly dressed. In order to snowshoe or hike in the snow, you must wear waterproof snow boots or hiking boots and waterproof breathable pants, jacket and gloves. Your clothing should be warm enough to allow you to comfortably remain outside in below-freezing conditions for 2–4 hours at a time. Layers are encouraged for when we snowshoe.
Severe Weather
You can't have a winter wonderland without some winter weather. During December, January and February—when our trips run—snow and below-freezing temperatures are likely, and even rain is possible. Please know that if, during the trip, we encounter severe weather that affects our planned activities, your Trip Leaders will find alternate activities that you're sure to enjoy.
