My partner and I are looking at travelling to Yellowstone in Winter. We are travelling from Australia and will be arriving in the US around 7 December - I was thinking of spending a week in Seattle and then heading across to Yellowstone (around 14 December). We were planning on flying in and out of Bozeman or Billings and driving in and out of the North entrance.
I am concerned that the park might not yet be open for snowmobiles/coachs. The only other option available to us is to back-track from Chicago in mid-January but it is really quite out of the way to do that. So I guess my questions are:
1 - If the park hasn't opened for snowmobiles what will we actually be able to do?
2 - How hard of a drive is it into the park if we have never driven in snow conditions?
