3. Yellowstone National Park, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming
Yellowstone’s geysers and thermal springs create magical winter scenery that is snowy ... and steamy. Most of the park roads are closed to cars in winter, making way for travel by skis and snowcoaches in the less-crowded off-season. Enjoy a ranger-led tour on snowshoes, or attend an educational program to learn more about the park’s remarkable wildlife and geology. Private concessioners also offer special packages for guided winter tours, including cross-country skiing and wildlife-watching trips. Visitors can even go ice skating at the Mammoth Hot Springs outdoor rink for a fun holiday outing in one of the country’s most spectacular settings.
