Yellowstone National Park - Winter Wonderland I

Castle Geyser sunrise

From mid december to mid march all Yellowstone park roads are closed to cars; except the road between Gardiner and Cooke City in the northern part.

West-Yellowstone, MT is the most important winter gateway to the park. From here You can enter by snow coach or snow mobile. Snow mobiles offer the greatest flexibility for exploration. Be prepared for a chilly experience. Temperatures can easily drop to -20F in the morning. Riding at 35mph on a snow machine will add a lot of extra windchill.
