The only way to visit Yellowstone in the winter is by snowmobile because cars are not allowed. We booked a tour where we rode on a snowmobile for 90 miles through a gorgeous winter wonderland...and to see Old Faithful.
I was so stressed out the whole time riding the darn thing. It wiggles and jiggles like you are riding a motorcycle which I am NOT a fan of. I was so concentrated on making the curves..the whole time worrying that I would flip it and toss Paula and me into the wilderness or over the edge into the freezing water. No seat belts, freezing cold air....for 90 miles....I'm not a thrill-seeker...I work in an office for goodness sakes. To top it off, we had to wear these ridiculously huge snowmobile jumpsuits which makes using the restroom a frustrating task.
You won't find me riding a snowmobile again.
Yellowstone is much prettier in the summer time. The colors of the hot springs were more vibrant in the summer.
