See & Ski Winter Expedition
Journey with us to Yellowstone for a truly unique winter experience in America's first national park. This two-day, one-night tour allows you to experience Yellowstone in the solitude and serenity of winter. The expedition includes all transportation and five meals in addition to superior educational interpretation from your guides.
Day 1: On day one, you’ll be picked up by your guides in the early morning at your hotel, condo, or home. With your guides, you’ll eat a hot buffet breakfast at a local cafe in Jackson before beginning your journey north. You’ll spend approximately two hours traveling in a wheeled vehicle through Grand Teton National Park, stopping along the way to observe wildlife and picturesque vistas. Approximately one mile south of the Yellowstone entrance, you will transition from the wheeled vehicle into a custom, luxury Mercedes-Benz snowcoach. Your guides will drive you from the south entrance of Yellowstone along the Lewis River to West Thumb Geyser Basin. From West Thumb Geyser Basin you will travel over the Continental Divide three times before arriving at Old Faithful—your final destination for the day. Depending on what time of day you arrive at Old Faithful, you’ll have the opportunity to go on a short, guided walk, a short snowshoe, or short cross-country ski in the Upper Geyser Basin. Dinner will take place in the Obsidian Dining Room in the Old Faithful Snow Lodge.
