Take A Ride On a Yellowstone Snowcoach This Winter
What is the Yellowstone Snowcoach?
So, what is a snowcoach? A snowcoach is a special vehicle that is used to transport visitors to and from the park when the roads close in the winter season. These heated vehicles will get you to and from your destination safely while you are able to sit back and take in all of the scenic views.
The roads are usually closed from December to April. When the roads become too snow covered, they are open to oversnow traffic only. These road closures are with the exception of the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and the northeast entrance which is open year-round. One of the best ways to maneuver your way through the park is by a Yellowstone snowcoach.
