West Yellowstone:
If you’d like to venture farther from Big Sky, check out the Refuge Point Snowshoe and Ski Trail, a 2.3 mile loop with an overlook above Quake Lake, an hour and 20 minute drive South of Big Sky, or over 20 miles of groomed ski and snowshoe trails at Rendezvous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone.

Local's Tip

For additional ski terrain and even more natural beauty, talk to your favorite outfitter about skiing in Yellowstone National Park. Visiting Yellowstone during the winter months will offer you a glimpse into an ecosystem that has to be experienced to believe.

When at higher elevations, keep an eye out for pine martens, weasels, coyotes and elk.
