The Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and Cabins—named after nearby springs—offers a warm welcome to winter visitors. The hotel is newly remodeled as of fall 2019, now featuring rooms with private bath. Mammoth is an excellent spot to explore the Northern Range’s amazing winter wildlife watching opportunities and ski the miles of groomed and backcountry ski trails during the day. Stop by the ski shop for trail conditions, ski lessons, and rentals. In the evening, relax with a drink in the newly renovated Map Room which features a full bar and enjoy the musical delights of a live pianist. Winter 2019-2020: Opens - December 15, 2019 Closes - March 2, 2020
In winter, Old Faithful Snow Lodge offers a truly unique experience. Because of its location within the park’s interior, the Snow Lodge, as well as the Old Faithful area, are only accessible by commercially operated oversnow vehicles (snowcoaches). From this snowy haven elevated at approximately 7,300 feet, you can set out on a variety of explorations, either on your own or with one of our knowledgeable guides.
Take one of many different snowcoach tours – like one to the Canyon area, where you will find the famous, frozen Lower Falls. But don’t overlook what’s out the front door….the Upper Geyser Basin can be magical when winter’s colder temperatures mix with the steamy hot springs and geysers. Rent some skis or snowshoes, and explore any number of trails, of all different ability levels – with a guide, or without. Enjoy the fire as you sip a hot beverage in our lounge, while the snow falls lazily outside. No matter what you choose, you will never forget your winter visit to the Old Faithful Snow Lodge.
