Need to Know: Hotel Deadline & Ski Experience/Equipment
New reservations on this trip within 45 days of trip start date are highly unlikely due to Yellowstone National Park’s lodging cancellation policies. It’s highly recommended to book at least 46 days in advance!
We recommend bringing your own cross-country ski equipment (boots, skis, and poles) however we will rent you a set if you do not have – or would rather not travel with – ski equipment. Boot sizes are not always guaranteed but usually available. If you do bring your own equipment, make sure they are waxless cross-country touring/backcountry skis with a metal edge and not skinny skis or skate skis.
Also, previous xc ski experience is required for this trip. Or if you have never cross-country skied before we ask that you practice prior to your trip. Ideally you are able to ski short downhill slopes on groomed and ungroomed terrain, be able to turn, and control speed in groomed and ungroomed terrain.
