“Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.” – Andy GoldsworthyWhile many people curse the winter and the snow, here in Montana and Wyoming snow is a reason to celebrate! On our Yellowstone Winter Multisport Adventure we visit two world-class cross-country ski areas – the trails of Lone Mountain Ranch and the trails surrounding the town of West Yellowstone – where we glide along frozen creeks, through groves of Aspen trees, and with a clear blue “Big Sky” above. We also spend two days in Yellowstone, the world’s first national park. This tourist destination has millions of visitors in the summer, but in the winter it is home for only the hearty (like us!) and it is truly magical. The Park’s 2.2 million acres offer some of the best skiing and snowshoeing terrain you’ll find anywhere. Experiencing the steamy geothermal features, the abundant wildlife, and perhaps an eruption of Old Faithful by the light of the stars or moon are all bonuses that you will never forget. Learn more about this tour from a guest’s perspective in our Don’t Ski Too Close to Sleeping Bison blog post, or about the wildlife you can expect to encounter in our Big Animals in Big Sky Country blog post.
DAY 1: Your guides will meet you this morning in Bozeman, Montana, where we begin and end our adventure. We shuttle to Big Sky, 45 minutes away, and will spend the better part of our day at Lone Mountain Ranch, consistently voted one of the top cross-country areas in the entire country! Here we will become acquainted with one another and our cross-country ski equipment. If you like, we can arrange a refresher Nordic skiing lesson for you with Lone Mountain’s top-notch instructors. Otherwise, the miles of trails (ranging from beginner to expert) are yours to explore! When you are ready for…SEE FULL ITINERARY
