Summer 2018 Feature
A winter adventure in Yellowstone National Park
Cross-country ski in the morning, then soak in a hot pool in the afternoon. See bison and wolves. Avoid the crowds. What’s not to love about Yellowstone’s winters?
On the borders of Yellowstone National Park decades worth of barriers to pronghorn migration are opening one day at a time thanks to the hard work of volunteers and willing private landowners. Together we can make a difference for national parks and wildlife.
Tune in and watch Yellowstone Live on National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, August 5th - 8th

You’ll see herds of bison and elk, watch for wolves, spot foxes pouncing for voles, and discover wing prints in the snow left by hunting raptors. Explore quiet trails and hidden geysers with hot chocolate by the fire waiting for you back at the lodge.
Join our guides as they show you their hidden spots for spotting wildlife including bighorn sheep, elk, grizzly bears, moose, bison, and even a wolf or two. When not behind a spotting scope visit the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and Old Faithful for an unforgettable experience.
