There are still plenty of opportunities for you to get out and enjoy the vast wilderness of Yellowstone National Park, even during the winter and during a pandemic!
Yellowstone Tour Guides is pleased to offer a variety of ski trips for visitors. These trips have been specially tailored to be suitable for COVID-19 safety, including social distancing and trips to highly remote areas.
It’s an especially excellent opportunity to see a different side of the park at a time of year when there are far fewer visitors. Most of Yellowstone is closed during the late fall to allow the snow to accumulate for the snowmobile and snowcoach season, which begins on December 15.
About our ski trips
During the COVID-19 pandemic, people are understandably looking to avoid some of the more crowded areas while they head out for their Yellowstone ski trips. The good news is that Yellowstone Tour Guides offers some great ski trips out to some “mom and pop” ski resorts in more remote areas. We use smaller SUVs to shuttle people out and carry up to four skiers per vehicle with the gear. Only up to 12 people are allowed on every trip, ensuring it’s a small, easily distanced occasion for you to enjoy.
During this ski trip, you will have the opportunity to visit some areas of Yellowstone National Park and Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, without having to worry about any of the crowds you might encounter in normal circumstances or other seasons!
Throughout Montana and Wyoming you’ll encounter a wide range of remote roadways, and some ski areas that may only be accessible via steep mountain passes that may be intimidating for most drivers. Our guides have been highly trained in driving through wintery conditions even on some more precarious roadways to safely bring you to your destination, allowing you to enjoy some wintertime adventures away from the hustle and bustle of the more crowded ski resorts.
Rates for our Yellowstone ski trips include ground transportation, lodging and lift tickets. When planning your excursion, please remember that some of the areas to which we take our guests are only open and available two to four days a week, so you may need a bit of flexibility with your scheduling, especially if you want to hit more than just one of them.
If you love exploring the outdoors, there’s a good chance that this experience will prompt you to reconsider visiting major, often-crowded skiing resorts in the future, even after the pandemic subsides. Remote ski areas mean fewer people to deal with, no lines for lifts and a better overall experience. Plus, there’s something unique and special about being practically alone out in the wilderness.Interested in learning more about our Yellowstone ski trips?
