Trip Overview

Yellowstone in Winter is a classic Adventure Travel trip that has been sponsored by the CMC for over 20 years. What attracts club members year after year? Maybe it’s a brisk walk out to the geyser basin to see the Old Faithful geyser erupt in the fading light of late afternoon on the day of arrival. Or the several mile ski to Lone Star geyser with the anticipation of being there at just the right moment to enjoy 15 minutes of spectacular water and steam, perhaps with a bison thrown in for added atmosphere. If you are lucky, you’ll see playful river otters sliding into the Firehole River along the way. Or a starlight walk in an eerie landscape of burbling mudpots and steaming vents, sure to astound the most experienced outdoor traveler.
All these experiences and more await those who join this trip, with its balance of camaraderie for outdoor adventures, happy hours and meals, and opportunities to tailor each day’s snowy outings to individual skills and abilities.

Renee was an instructor in the Wilderness Trekking School, the Basic Mountaineering School, and the Backcountry Ski Touring School.
Hiking and cross-country skiing are her passions, and she has summited all of the Colorado Fourteeners and through-hiked the nearly 500 miles of the Colorado Trail with her husband. She enjoys exploring the historic South Park region of Colorado where she and her husband own a cabin.
