What is a snow coach?
A snowcoach is a snow friendly vehicle that can easily travel along groomed winter roads. Vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, from vans to open sleds, but the key similarity is that the wheels have been replaced with tracks similar to a snowmobile.
Where can I go on a snowcoach tour?
Snowcoach tours are available from the West, South, and North entrances to the park. Snowcoach tours offer a variety of destinations within the park, including Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Old Faithful. Tours often highlight wildlife, scenic viewpoints, and sometimes offer an activity like cross country skiing or snowshoeing.
One of the best ways to experience Yellowstone in the winter is to take a snowcoach or snowmobile tour into Old Faithful Snow Lodge and spend the night. While you are there, you can take a snowcoach ride to various park destinations, to go cross country skiing, or just explore the area on snowshoes.
When are tours available?
Snowcoach tours are available within Yellowstone National Park between mid December and mid April.
