|Yellowstone in the winter is all
about snow, cold, and survival. Feet of snow blanket the mountains and
sagebrush valleys in the park, making it easier to spot wildlife. Gray Wolves are hunting elk,
bison push the snow aside with their heads, bighorn and deer
paw at the snow to get to the buried grasses, moose are browsing the willows, predators like coyotes and foxes are digging in the snow at carcass
sites or mousing in snow drifts, river otters and eagles are hunting the fish
along the unfrozen sections of river. Eating is survival.
The bottom line is Yellowstone delivers the greatest winter
wildlife photography experiences in North America.
not traveling with me, we meet in Gardiner, MT just outside
the northwest entrance to Yellowstone. I expect snow storms, wind, clouds, and blue sky days.
You can never tell from weather reports exactly what we could see, but its that
type of weather that creates amazing images. It is the winter weather, harsh and cold,
that makes the wildlife encounters spectacular.

I am a licensed guide in Yellowstone.
I've spent a large part of my 40-year wildlife photo career shooting in Yellowstone
- with total days approaching 1800. To be honest, I've
lost track of the number of safaris I've led to just
Yellowstone, but several hundred at least. Experience in the park is vital to a
successful safari, no matter the weather, or situation.
Difficulty Level :
EASY, but cold.
Warm, layered clothing is a must. Waterproof boots,
thermal pants, and multiple layers of top clothing, finished
with a waterproof/windproof jacket with a head covering.
Two levels of gloves - medium-cold and below-zero cold.
