10 photos to inspire you to go to Yellowstone in the winter

America’s first national park, Yellowstone is truly a winter wonderland. From December to March, Yellowstone opens its doors for the winter season. The crowds are significantly less and the temperatures are cold, but the experience you get is amazing. We had visited Yellowstone many times before, but winter is our favorite time of year. It takes some planning and we recommend staying at Old Faithful Snow Lodges, but the wildlife, thermal features and lack of crowds make it really special. Just keep in mind that you can visit the interior of this place with such natural beauty only by snowmobile or snowmobile. To be honest, however, snowmobiles are not a great option in our opinion and there are many great trails around Yellowstone to travel. Just driving on the roads through the park seems pointless.

However, there are many packages and activities to enjoy during the winter months, when Yellowstone is the most dramatic and, in our opinion, the most beautiful. The snow huts are basic but comfortable and the drive to the snow huts by snow bus was great. We rode snowshoes, went on a photography trip, met bison and wolves after a murder, and enjoyed the cold weather. Here are 10 photos that we hope will inspire you to experience Yellowstone in the winter:

Our last word

We love Yellowstone National Park all year round, but winter is special. At low temperatures, bears hibernate and wolves take over the park. The natural beauty comes out and the crowds stay at home. You feel like you have the whole park to yourself and a few others. Wrap layers and take advantage of what Yellowstone has to offer. This is truly a winter wonderland.
