If you think winter means hibernation from outdoor adventure, think again! Yellowstone is a wonderful national park for cold weather fun and excitement. Here’s how we spend a perfect winter day in Yellowstone!

With our Thermoses full of hot coffee and cocoa, we enter Yellowstone from the north. We bundle up in our winter gear and set off on a morning wildlife tour in the Lamar Valley. We stumble upon some bison, bighorn sheep, moose, and a pack of wolves! We even see a fox and a couple of coyotes hunting for rodents in the snow. 

Next, we stop for a snowy picnic lunch. We pour ourselves hot soup, fresh-baked bread, and cheese. We top it off with some hot apple cider, hot chocolate, and, of course, ample snacks!

Now off to our afternoon adventure! We’ll explore the fascinating features of Mammoth Hot Springs and can choose to hike or snowshoe to overlook Calcite Springs or Beaver Ponds. 

After a fantastic, rosy-cheeked day outdoors, you’ll want to get nice and warm! If you are staying north of the park, we suggest a dip in one of the area’s many natural hot springs! Yellowstone Hot Springs or Chico Hot Springs would be a wonderful way to cap off your winter adventure in Yellowstone.
