Christmas in Yellowstone # 21783 Share a ride from Bozeman airport to W. Yellowstone

This is a Bucket List trip for me. I love Yellowstone in the Summer. Now, I will get to see it in the Winter. Want to share a ride? I'm flexible on time.

  • While I am not on this trip I have done Yellowstone in winter and it is fabulous! If you don't get any takers on sharing a ride, Karst Stage ( www.karststage.com ) has a shuttle from Bozeman in winter. I'd also suggest you arrive a day early. A day of flex time will allow for any winter or holiday hiccups in air transportation. You definitely don't want to miss your activities on Day 2. There is plenty to do in West Yellowstone for a day on your own. There may be a snowshoe hike from the YNP Visitor Center in West Yellowstone on a groomed trail, there is a huge Cross Country ski area with groomed trails or you can just walk around town and get acclimated to the cold and the elevation!

    It also looks to me like they have made an error on Day 5. The title says "Early morning Geyser walk then snowcoach to Mammoth Hot Springs". The body of the itinerary says Geyser Hill walk then after lunch "Board snow coaches for our final unforgettable voyage back to our starting point, Yellowstone's Western gateway town." The route back out to West Yellowstone is not going to include going via Mammoth. Even in summer it's a 2.5 hour drive from OF to Mammoth so no way can they add Mammoth in on an afternoon trip to return to West Yellowstone. This is a small point, but just wanted to add it in.

    I love Yellowstone and it is fabulous in winter. I hope you have warm clothes!
