Skiing the Lamar Valley: a Wildlife Safari
They call it the Serengeti of North America. And for good reason. The Lamar Valley is incredibly rich in wildlife. Imagine x-country skiing around a heard of bison, and having a coyote trot by. You might hear wolves howling and/or see them on the hillside above. Elk, fox, marten, moose, ermine, eagles, you name it, they are all here, and many in abundance.
Join Yellowstone Ski Tours for a guided backcountry ski trip to into the heart of this wild place. Options include valley routes using x-country skis, to adventure lines utilizing skins and alpine touring equipment to access the mountains above. Ski touring around the Lamar is truly a unique and memorable experience.
Backcountry skiing is a way to become immersed in the landscape in an authentic and genuine way, and the Lamar region is about as interesting as it gets from a wildlife and ecological standpoint.
