Strange tree. Looking at the picture right side up, it almost looks like a snowmobile trail heading off into the distance through one heck of a huge snowdrift!

Thanks for sharing!!! Headed out in less then 4 weeks now. Can't wait! How was the snow? Assuming being a family trip you didn't do much off trail? Hear of any local reports of back country conditions while you were there? Thanks for any input!!! Glad you had a great time with the family!!!

Did the same trip between Xmas and New Years in 06. It is beautiful out there in the winter. I have a lot of those same pictures, just different people in them. We had 12 in the group and stayed at the 3 Bears. Even got to see moose at the Springs on our way down to Island Park. Nice pictures.

It was really cool to have those buffalo walk by so close. Our guide had us leave the sleds running and just stay on the opposite side from the buffalo. We have them on video walking by. Unbelievable how many hot springs there are in the park.

did you rent out there or reclutch your machines? do you have to run 4 strokes in yellowstone? That looks like a real nice fam vaca

They call the snow packed trees 'snow ghosts'... was that on Two Top?

Hard to imagine 8-10 feet of snowpack and 4 feet of powder. You have to see it to believe it.

Great pics....wife and I took our sleds out 5yrs ago. We went with a group and our guide was from Idaho. On our extra day, he took us into Idaho to where he likes to ride. He was an awesome guide. Great snow, great pics of wildlife...moose, elk, eagles.

We had rentals through the 3 Bear Lodge where we stayed. Did days 1 & 3 in the park and days 2 & 4 outside. Morning 2 was to Two Top on fresh snow. Half the group were new to snowmobiles. Now imagine the stucks, but it was fun digging them out. Toughest part was driving an AC, while sporting my Polaris gear. That M8 had no problem in the snow. The trees are much taller than they appear.
