Winter is just around the corner! If you’re planning on taking your snowmobile for a ride this winter to Yellowstone National Park, there are a few key things you need to know in order to make your next trip, and winter adventure as smooth as possible! In this article we will break down the exact and proper way to plan ahead, so you can arrive at Yellowstone National Park with ease, and be ready to ride the day away. 

To go on an unguided snowmobile tour of Yellowstone National Park, it is not as simple as showing up at the park entrance with your snowmobile. Instead, you need to apply for a permit through a park lottery system, which may come as a surprise to some. The permit application process takes place in August, and only four non-commercially guided snowmobile groups are allowed into Yellowstone per day, with one group permitted per park entrance.

To obtain a permit, you need to apply for a group permit that covers up to five snowmobiles. The cost of the permit is $40 per day, and there is also a $6 application fee. The permits are awarded in September, and if there are any cancellations or unclaimed permits, they are given out on a first-come, first-served basis starting in mid-October.

However, if you are going on a guided snowmobile tour of Yellowstone, you do not need to worry about obtaining permits yourself. The guide service you choose will take care of all the necessary permits needed for the tour. It is worth noting that there are snowmobile tour operators available at each of Yellowstone’s entrances, including the North, West, South, and East entrances.

In summary, if you plan to embark on an unguided snowmobile tour of Yellowstone National Park, it is essential to apply for a permit through the park’s lottery system in August. Only four non-commercially guided snowmobile groups are allowed per day, with one group permitted per park entrance. However, if you opt for a guided snowmobile tour, the guide service will handle all the necessary permits for you.
So this winter, make sure to take your snowmobile for a ride to Yellowstone National Park. By using these steps in prepping early, you will be amazed at how easy it is to embark on a winter adventure by yourself, with family or with friends!
