Spring is a time of change and renewal in West Yellowstone, bringing wildlife newborns, bear sightings, and beautiful scenery to photograph. Summer days provide visitors unlimited access to explore and play in the splendor of the high country. You can fish blue-ribbon trout streams, hike in pristine wilderness, experience real western horseback riding, go whitewater rafting, or mountain bike on hundreds of miles of singletrack and forest service roads. Fall brings spectacular scenery and the annual elk mating season where huge bull elk battle for their harems with eerie, echoing bugles. Winter brings an average annual snowfall of 143 inches, which means endless adventures in cross-country skiing, ice fishing, sled dog tours, and much more. Enjoy snowcoach or snowmobile tours into Yellowstone National Park from West Yellowstone—the only daily winter entrance into the park. West Yellowstone, your outdoor playground for every season.
