TRANSPORTATION – We will fly roundtrip from Charlotte to Bozeman, Montana. We will depart Charlotte Wednesday morning, January 25th. After arriving in Bozeman, we will travel 90 miles by Karst Stage Chartered Bus to West Yellowstone, Montana. There is no need to rent a car in West Yellowstone. Your snowmobile will be your transportation. We will arrive back in Charlotte Sunday evening, January 29th.
FOOD – Our lodging does not have kitchen facilities so meals will need to be eaten out. Snowmobile trails have warming huts with sandwiches, sodas and snacks. There are many restaurants within walking distance from our hotel.
SNOWMOBILES – We rent snowmobiles that have features designed for touring. They typically have electric start with reverse; multi-position backrest; cargo rack; heated handgrips; 11-gallon fuel tank with fuel gauge; and “extra suspension” for a smooth ride with a top speed of 70 mph. Our Y package does not include optional insurance for snowmobiles – about $ 15 per day. We will rent our snowmobiles in West Yellowstone.
AGE RESTRICTIONS – In order to drive a snowmobile you must be 16 years of age and have a valid driver license. Any age may ride double with an adult.
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Yellowstone becomes a winter wonderland during the winter. Mountains are snow covered and so are the roads. Snow coaches are used for winter tours. Snow coaches are van like vehicles that have tractor treads for traveling in the snow – our package includes a snow coach tour into the park. Guided snowmobile tours into the park are available for an extra fee. Snow Coach and Snowmobile tours into the park typically see geysers, bison (buffalo), and elk – perhaps a moose or an eagle.
SNOWMOBILE TRAILS – A network of more than 300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and meadows for “free style” riding are available for riding snowmobiles outside the park. West Yellowstone is nicknamed the “Snowmobile Capital of the World.” LEADERSHIP – Nadine will provide registration assistance at the Regional YMCA office, 323 Oakland Avenue in Rock Hill – 803-324-9622 Ext. 21. YMCA staff will attend the trip and group leaders will lead daily snowmobile trips for those interested. A special thanks to several veterans who assist the group in many, many ways – Ron Russell, Darold Ratliff, Bill Mauney, and Ralph Morrison.
LODGING - West Yellowstone – Our lodging will be in at Yellowstone Lodge at West Yellowstone, Montana - just outside the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Our rooms will have 2 queen beds (or 1 king bed), TV, and an indoor hot tub/pool. In addition, West Yellowstone has various shops and restaurants nearby.
