“I really appreciate the passion, diligence and expertise brought to my first Timberline program!” – first time snowshoe participant
Yellowstone National Park , America’s first National Park, is an exciting summertime destination. But in winter you will be awed by the beauty, surrealism and solitude of the area! We will stay in the exclusive Snow Lodge, accessible only by snowcoach, and dared by only a few. Our experience at Old Faithful will be unhindered by crowds, the wildlife will be unflustered and calm, and the scenery of billowing steam from thermal areas, sparkling sunlight off the snow covered trees, and frozen blue skies will regale us.
No experience is necessary on our Yellowstone Snowshoe tour, and snowshoes will be provided. Our guides will be able to instruct you on the proper techniques of snowshoe use, which is quickly learned. Most of the trails in the area have very little elevation gain, except for the trail up to Mallard Lake where we climb out of the Firehole River valley for about 900 ft. We will visit Old Faithful, Lonestar Geyser, Biscuit Basin and more. Dining is at the Snow Lodge Obsidian Dining Room. Come join us on this amazing new tour.
