We are two families (4 kids [4,5,7,8], and 4 adults) that are planning to visit Yellowstone for 3-4 days the week of February 11th, 2007. We have read many posts about great places to stay and things to do. We have some questions that we would like some advice on.
We will be traveling in from Salt Lake City after skiing there for a few days. We have rented a 4x4 truck.
Should we stay in West Yellowstone or Gardiner, MT area? Our goal is to explore via snowcoach with the family and to have a snowmobile rides for the adults on another day. I hear that the wildlife is beautiful in both areas. We want to see Old Faithful and take in the winter sights. Thoughts?
What is a great place to stay for young families that include an inside swimming pool (heated would be great?), hot tubs and access to shopping/restaurants. Thank you!
