Yellowstone Snowmobile Lottery Begins Tomorrow
Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 31, 2017
People who want to snowmobile in Yellowstone National Park next winter without a guide can enter a lottery starting this Friday.
The park requires all non-commercially guided snowmobile groups that enter the park to have a permit, so beginning tomorrow, Yellowstone will accept applications to the 2017-2018 winter season lottery for permits to snowmobile in the park without the presence of a commercial guide.
Anyone interested in this winter recreation opportunity is invited to apply through www.recreation.gov from September 1 to September 30, and successful lottery applicants will be notified in mid-October. Trips can be for a maximum of three days in length, and permits cost $40 per day with a $6 application fee. All snowmobiles must meet the park’s New Best Available Technology (BAT) standard which is explained on our website.
The park will make any remaining or cancelled permits available on a first-come, first-served basis through the same webpage beginning November 3.
