January 2018, half-day tour from West Yellowstone?

Post by windsketch » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:14 pm

Hi,

I am planing a trip to Yellowstone on Jan 2018, and because of the schedule of shuttle service I will arrive at West Yellowstone after noon. Is there any tour held for half-day long in the winter season?

Thanks :)

You may be more likely to get advice in the Insider forum. This forum is dedicated to past trip reports.

I have a feeling it's unlikely given the late start. There's limited daylight and the snow coaches are slow, so even just getting to Old Faithful and back with limited stops might take half a day. Unless you charter a private coach, of course. Still, there are plenty of coach operators in West, so maybe something's available.

Thank you for your reply! After contacting snowcoach operators in West Yellowstone, they only offer tours started in early morning. I may be walk around the town and visit Grizzly Wolf and Discovery Center that day :)

p.s. sorry for my misplaced post!

You can always ski/snowshoe into the park on your own - I've skied in many times to photograph bobcats at 7 mile bridge and beyond.
