Yellowstone Winter Questions

Jump to last reply

I am in the thinking stages of a winter trip to Yellowstone for next winter (2012/2013). I am presuming that the park will continue with the same practices for snowcoaches an snowmobiles.
I am thinking of doing "Trail of the Wolf" package offered by xanterra. I would do this from
Mammoth.
I have two concerns with this plan.

#1 My biggest concern

is about driving from Bozeman airport to Mammoth. Does the road close often?

#2 This package allows very little time to visit the Old Faithful area. Is it easy to walk to all the geysers in the winter, like it is in the summer or should i just be content with watching Old Faithful errupt and not worry with the others?

I could totally book all of this seperate and not worry with the package and this would allow me to spend an extra day at Old Faithful, but it would be a lot more money.

It just looks a lot easier to fly into Bozeman than Jackson. It looks like getting to the lodge from Jackson is a bit of a trick.

I want to do this trip with my daughter. She would be off of college from about Mid-Dec thru Jan 10. Is this a better trip in say Feb or Mar? or is the last week of Dec/1st week of Jan OK? Enough snow then? Perhaps a better risk at that time for the roads being easier to navigate?
