It’s also a short distance to restaurants, stores and services in Island Park if you want to sneak away for an espresso or some extra groceries.
Looking for a unique vacation adventure? From December 15th through March 15th, you can access the wintry wonderland of Yellowstone's interior through oversnow tours leaving West Yellowstone daily. Snowmobile or snowcoach tours offer a rare glimpse into Yellowstone's quiet season. The snow covered landscape, frozen waterfalls and frosted trees when, contrasted with geysers and other geothermal features, creates a surreal winterscape. Frosty bison and elk are often seen along the roads, while snowy fields make it easier to spot coyotes, foxes, and wolves.
Outside Yellowstone Park there are millions of acres of public lands for snowmobilers to explore. Explore over 600 hundred miles of groomed snowmobile trails in the surrounding National Forests. Snowmobile right from Grandma's Cabin onto the well-marked trail system which leads to spectacular scenery and exhilarating back country powder. With all the new snow, we will soon be grooming snowmobile trails.
Winter brings its own wintry wonderland magic to Grandma’s Cabin. Ski or snowmobile right from your door. Snowmobilers love the 500 miles of inter-connected groomed snowmobile trails in Idaho and Montana. Check out the snowmobile trail map and trail descriptions. Don’t miss the “Snow Ghosts” trees on Two Top Mountain. Or, sled to Big Springs to look for moose and feed the fish.
Cross-country skiers can enjoy nearby Harriman State Park of Idaho and Targhee National Forest trails or take on the renowned Rendezvous Ski Trail system in West Yellowstone just a short drive away. You can also ski into Yellowstone Park on the Riverside Trail starting right in West Yellowstone.
