Expedition Risk Statement: Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park are remote locales. Traveling in these National Park's in the winter season is adventure travel at its best. Clients must know that conditions are cold, windy, and snowy. All travel will occur on uneven terrain that will be covered in snow or ice. Visibility may be limited. Teton Science Schools works to minimize the risk of mechanical failures, but they do occur.

Viewing destination locations cannot be guaranteed in the winter environment of Yellowstone.
