Yellowstone in Winter
Immerse yourself in the beauty and majesty of America’s first national park in winter – the snow-covered landscape, the incredible wildlife and the magnificent thermal features. Yellowstone National Park was set aside as our first national park in 1872 because of its spectacular geological features, including the world’s largest concentration of geysers. Yellowstone remains a refuge for the full complement of large mammals that once roamed the west, including gray wolves, which were reintroduced in 1995. Learn about Yellowstone’s rich history, leading role in conservation, and exceptional ecosystem as we travel through its magical winter landscape.
