Exploring Cody Yellowstone during its quiet season means you have two choices every day of your visit: You can see a lot of a little, or a little of a lot.
With abundant sunshine, surprisingly comfortable temperatures (we love low humidity) and plenty of snow, Cody Yellowstone in winter is an adventurer’s paradise.
Outdoor options include Sleeping Giant Ski Area, with 184 skiable acres and a terrain park constructed of materials found on the hill. In addition to being the only resort in Wyoming with “SNO-GO” bikes, Sleeping Giant has night tubing and skiing, a big New Year’s Eve party with live music, and yurt and tent rentals for groups.
If you prefer non-downhill activities, try ice skating at Homesteader Park in Powell, climbing on one of many frozen waterfalls, cross-country skiing at Wood River Valley Ski Touring Park or riding a snowmobile throughout the world-class trail system in the Beartooth Mountains.
Indoor options include watching the Yellowstone Quake Hockey Team, ice skating at the Victor J. Riley Arena, or checking out various attractions like the world-class Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Heart Mountain WWII Interpretive Center and the Cody Firearms Experience.
