Dear Athletes and Fall visitors to West Yellowstone,
We are saddened to say that after looking at the weather models over the next 10 days we believe we will be unable to provide groomed skiing in West Yellowstone or on the South Plateau. Currently we have no snow and less than one inch is forecasted for the upcoming week.
For those of you still planning or considering being here next week, please bring your roller skis and bicycles. There will be no shortage of dry land fun. You can bike or roller ski into Yellowstone Park and on the new Yellowstone Shortline Trail. This trail is paved and clear for almost 8 miles. There are also a variety of hikes in Yellowstone and surrounding National Forest.
In regards to the Ski Festival Clinics, they are also cancelled this year. Refunds will be processed to registered clinic participants in the next few weeks.
This is only the second time in our 30 years of working and hosting this event that we have had to cancel. We hope to have some scheduled events as we meet and discuss options. Let’s make the best of the week and we look forward to seeing those of you who come to West Yellowstone this Thanksgiving.
Yellowstone Ski Festival Committee
