Description

There are many reasons that Yellowstone National Park is an alpine wonderland for backcountry skiers, including 2 million acres of diverse terrain, deep snowpack, hot springs, gushing geysers, and fantastic wildlife situated in the Rocky Mountains.

It's relatively easy to access, and being so enormous, there are five entrances, so it’s good to decide which area of the park you want to focus on before you get there. The sheer scale of the park and magnitude of the landscape makes it hard to know where to begin, so we have curated a list of 9 great ski tours to point you in the right direction.
