Suggestions for a couple of days of winter Yellowstone activities?

Jump to last reply

I'm making my 1st trip to Yellowstone in late Dec/early Jan. (Yikes, it takes a lot of advance planning!) I have several activities scheduled: 3-day Winter Wildlife Expedition w/ Yellowstone Association; evening Steam, Stars, and Winter Soundscapes tour; 4 snowcoach rides (pseudo-tours, I'd guess).

I do have some more open time: a full day while staying @ Mammoth; a full day, 1, maybe 2 mornings, and an afternoon while staying @ Old Faithful Snow Lodge. I'd like to use this time for exploring on my own. I'm far from skilled, but can get around, on XC skis or snowshoes.

So many trails and thermal features in these 2 areas are listed in the guidebooks, but I'm not sure how much ground I should try to cover in winter, and would love to hear your recommendations for how to put these spots together for great half- or full-day winter outings. Thanks!
