Select a Snowmobile
There’s no denying that a snowmobile tour of Yellowstone National Park is one of the most breath-taking winter activities you can take part in when in Wyoming. However as with any cold winter climates, the weather can become a bit unpredictable and it’s not always possible or safe to embark on a snowmobile tour, especially if there are blizzard conditions or worse.
Unfortunately your plans may have to change last minute due to the weather which can be a little frustrating, particularly if you’re here on vacation. Whilst we will always try to accommodate you as best we can and change days where possible, we can only apologise about the conditions, as there isn’t really anything we can do to prevent them.
However to soften the blow, we’ve come up with a list of a few things you could do in your new found free time if you can’t take a tour:
Visit the Devil’s Tower National Monument
Famous for appearing in the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, this monument is a spectacle to behold in North East Wyoming. There’s a 1.3 mile trail up to the monument, which may not be easily accessible in poor conditions, especially on foot in heavy snow, but visitors can be guided up by a ranger. There’s a great indoor visitor’s centre here in which you can learn all about the history behind Devil’s Tower and its surroundings.
Visit Fort Laramie National Historic Site
As the name suggests, this is a must visit for any history buff, or as an educational trip for the family. The national historic site features a number of historic buildings which have been restored and can be viewed and accessed on short tours. There’s also a visitor’s centre here, which will let you enjoy a video of the fort history as well as a historic book store. Inside the centre you’ll also find some interesting museum exhibits, which include various artifacts, weapons and military uniforms from Fort Laramie’s rich past.
Play online games
If you have a mobile or tablet device which has WiFi, you could occupy yourself with some online games. The great thing about this is that you’re sure to find something to suit all tastes in your App store, whether that be a learning game for the kids, a round or two of popular social media games like Angry Birds and Candy Crush, or playing online gambling games like slots or bingo. If you’re not sure about the latter as you’re worried about spending money, you could head to www.bingostrike.com/no-deposit-bingo to find a site that will offer you free funds to try their bingo games out.
Of course these are just a few of the things you can do in Wyoming in winter, and weather permitting there are of course loads of other great snow sports and activities you can take part in while you’re here, including sleigh rides and more.
