Snowmobile Yellowstone, looking for/need group for March to do Loop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My buddy and I will be in Big Sky skiing from March 5 through March 8, but wish to go snowmobiling in Yellowstone Park for a day to do the Loop (Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and Old Faithful). Looking anyone who would like to join us to reduce cost. I'd like to rent snowmobiles in West Yellowstone, but understand that to go into the Park, you need a guide. Most tours go to either Old Faithful, or the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, but not both. To do both, this can only be accomplished by having a guide. Guide cost $400 alone, plus rental cost of sleds and cloting. Looking for anyone who may be interested in joining us to form a group to do the Yellowstone Loop which includes the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and Old Faithful, and reduce the cost per person for the gudie. Back in the 80's I was able to simply rent a sled and was free to ride where I wanted in the Park. These days, laws have changed and you need a guide. If interested, please let me know and we'll see what we can work out.

Well, ignore the post above, it seems the road to the Canyon is closed after March 3rd.

Any idea if it's better to snowmobile outside the park vs. in the Park?

Snowmobiling in the park requires a guide and a clean snowmobile. You need to go in with a group. There are speed limits and you have to stick to designated roads.

Snowmobiling outside the park is fairly unrestricted except for some speed traps coming back into town (where they will ticket you for excessive speed.) There are miles & miles of trails plus many open areas to snowmobile in. The scenary is great but you won't see the wildlife or geothermal features you see in the park. If you are looking for speed and a challenge then stay outside the park. If you are looking for wildlife and scenary go into the park.

Thanks for the information. Can you recommend a company in West Yellowstone to rent with? Thank you.
