YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - Yellowstone National Park’s winter season begins on Thursday, December 15.

With conditions permitting, most park roads will be open to over-snow travel by snowmobile and snowcoach.

Between mid-December to mid-March, most park visitors use commercially guided snowmobiles, snow coaches, and the non-commercially guided snowmobile access program.

YNP shares a list of top things to know in the winter:

Winter travel ends mid-March as plowing crews begin to clear snow. Roads will begin to re-open to automobiles in mid-April.
