There are more than two million acres of wilderness for visitors to explore. The iconic spots – Old Faithful, Lower Falls and Yellowstone Lake may be familiar from paintings and photographs, but seeing them in person is a humbling, enthralling experience that visitors can enjoy year-round

Winter in Yellowstone is truly a unique and intimate experience. Although most roads in the park are closed to vehicles, visitors can travel through the park in snow coaches or on snowmobiles with an authorized guide.
Visitors may cross country ski or snowshoe in the park on miles of groomed trails, partake in wildlife watching, or simply escape for a quiet and majestic retreat. In the winter, guests can stay inside the park at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Cabins or Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel. Both locations have casual dining facilities, and visitor centers that are open year-round.
The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 designated Yellowstone and Grand Teton among the 156 national parks and wilderness areas that are Class I airsheds, requiring the most stringent air quality protection within and around their boundaries. Yellowstone and Grand Teton are in compliance with federal air quality standards for human health
