Yellowstone's west entrance opens for the spring season on Friday, April 26th, 2013 and it's a fee free day! Combine Earth Day Weekend fun with a trip into Yellowstone to see the first baby bison.
Through Kids’N’Snow, we want to offer an opportunity for all kids, both from our community and winter visitors, the chance to try new things in a safe and fun hands-on learning environment. And, hopefully, to develop lifelong healthy habits along the way.

The Kids’N’Snow started with a “test” weekend in December 2010 to see whether we could work with strategic partners to create a new program. The weekend was so successful, we expanded into to a full program featuring one Kids’ weekend each month during the 2011/2012winter season. The result? Over 500 participants spanning eight states and two countries, and almost 80% from outside our community. Families even traveled to West Yellowstone for a second, or a third, Kids’N’Snow weekend.
The long-term goal of the Kids’N’Snow is to offer this program on a regular basis throughout the winter months. We are working with our strategic partners and funding organizations to develop a full schedule of Kids’N’Snow future events. If you have questions, or would like to be included in information about future programs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the programs offered by our strategic learning partners kids can get outdoors in the winter and try a new activity, like ice skating, cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Kids’N’Snow wants to take the fear out of first-ever winter experiences. Trying out cross country skiing is easier and fun when doing it through Ski Games. Or, learning to snow shoe with an interpretive ranger.
Imagine being able to take a snowcoach ride into Yellowstone National Park to glimpse winter wildlife available through the “Snowcoach Sampler” meet a real raptor, or learn about search-and-rescue dogs and winter snow safety? All at a very minimal cost.
