Yellowstone, GTNP, GNP - Can We Avoid Crowds, Mosquitos, and Snow?

Jump to last reply

DH and I are planning a trip to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Glacier for next year and I'm trying to decide when to go. We are retired so aren't bound by school schedules or anything like that. We do want to drive the Going To The Sun road, though, so want to avoid snow if we can. We also want to avoid mosquitos and (as much as possible) crowds.

I'm think that avoiding snow means going between mid-June and mid-September. How are the biting bugs then? Is any time better for avoiding crowds, or is that just not possible?

If it matters, I'm thinking of taking 2 to 2.5 weeks for this trip. No real time constraints, it's just a matter of $$ and how long it will take us to OD on gorgeous scenery. ;-)

Thanks for any advice!
