Holiday in Yellowstone

Looking for a different holiday outing? How about snowmobiling, snowshoeing, or nordic skiing in Yellowstone National Park or along the Continental Divide Trail System? At Wyoming’s Turpin Meadow Ranch, winter play options abound.

You can tramp about endlessly on snowshoes (it’s fun and easy, even for beginners) or strap on skinny skis and glide onto a trail right outside your cabin door. Turpin Ranch is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, so Grand Teton National Park is handy (just 15 miles away) and so is the southern border of Yellowstone National Park. The ranch offers snowmobile tours into Yellowstone park, where you can gawk over abundant wildlife (bison, elk, tundra swans, even wolves) along with hissing mud pots, frothy fumaroles, and steamy geysers. Or let them show you a section of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT); the little-known CDT traverses some of Wyoming’s most diverse landscapes, from the craggy Teton Wilderness to the lake-strewn Wind River Range.
