The snowcoach tours offer great elk and bison habitat, however the north side offers excellent elk, bison, wolf, coyote, pronghorn, mule deer, whitetail deer and bighorn sheep habitat. Many visitors in the late March and early April will be treated with some of the first grizzly and black bear sightings of the year. This trip travel by van via Bozeman and the North Entrance through the spectacular Paradise Valley. In addition to viewing thousands of animals, this tour will also see one of Yellowstone’s most unique and beautiful thermal features, Mammoth Hot Springs.
