So we knew we were going to drive out to Jackson Hole to do some skiing between Christmas and New Years, but we decided to schedule a last minute stay in Yellowstone National Park.

Apparently people book their holidays at Yellowstone out a year before, well, not us! I think we booked about a month ago. And it's not just ensuring there’s availability at the Snow Lodge either, you have to book space in a vintage Bombardier snow coach since the roads are closed to normal traffic once the snow starts falling.

To be perfectly honest … this part of the logistical journey was AWESOME and keeps the crowds out of the park. Anyways, we ended up spending two nights at the Snow Lodge and one full day snowshoeing. We were blessed with some incredible weather too, on the drive into the park, it was sunny blue skies and the day we had in the park it was overcast and didn’t start snowing until that afternoon.

Yellowstone in the winter is a definite must!
