Winter at Yellowstone
What's the deal?: Yellowstone National Park is offering Winter Getaway packages that include wildlife tours, snowmobiling and ice skating. The packages are available Jan. 3 to March 6, a period often ripe with snow-play specials. Particularly appealing: "Trail of the Wolf," a guided snowmobile trip to the interior of the park and wildlife watching by special van in the park's northern range. The package includes three nights of lodging at Old Faithful Snow Lodge or Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, two breakfasts per person, a hot tub rental, unlimited skating and skates.
What's the savings?: Varies depending upon the package. Rates begin at $411 per person double occupancy (two nights at Mammoth Hot Springs and one night at Old Faithful). Two nights at Old Faithful and one night at Mammoth Hot Springs runs $546 per person.
What's the catch?: None that I can find. Airfare is not included.
Information:: The deals are offered through Xanterra Parks & Resorts, which operates lodges and restaurants at state and national parks around the nation. Call 866-439-7375 or go to travelyellowstone.com.
