The Kids ‘N’ Snow Program offers sustainable, repeatable weekends throughout the winter, raising the awareness of West Yellowstone as a family-friendly destination. It brings families to West Yellowstone, creating a memorable experience, while encouraging those visitors to return again.
The goals of Kids’N’Snow is to take the fear out of first-ever winter experiences. Through the programs offered by our strategic learning partners, kids and their families can get outdoors in the winter and try a new activity, like ice skating, cross country skiing or snowshoeing in a safe environment.
After seven years, the program has expanded to 1,000+ participants, spanning more than ten states and several countries over the four weekends each winter. In 2012, the program received the “Tourism Event of the Year” from the Montana Office of Tourism, and in 2014, we were awarded an AZA Nature Grant, recognizing us as an AZA Nature Play Site.
