Yellowstone Cycle Days

Spring is in the air and the snow is slowly melting away. Pretty soon Yellowstone National Park will be welcoming the summer crowds, but not before welcoming a special spring event known as the Cycle Days. From April 1 - 20 Yellowstone opens its roads to cyclists, while cars and buses are not permitted. You can bike around the park with the roads all to yourself! From the West Yellowstone entrance, take your bike to Madison Junction and then you can continue to the Canyon or to Mammoth Hot Springs. Make it a real adventure and bring the whole family!

Not sure where to rent bicycles or need more information about the Park roads? Let us know at Faithful Street Inn and we will help you plan your biking adventure, along with providing a relaxing western cabin for your daily rest!

Learn the area...on Snowshoes!

Winter in West Yellowstone brings with it a plethora of great outdoor activities. Many are familiar with snowmobiling, cross country skiing and wildlife viewing, but have you ever explored the area on snowshoes?

Snowshoeing around West Yellowstone is a great way to view the landscape and wildlife of Montana. It's cheap, family friendly and easy to learn! Gallatin National Forest employees even offer weekly snowshoe walks targeted for beginners of the sport.

There are many spots in West Yellowstone that offer snowshoe rentals and can get you moving on the best trails. Take a day to explore on snowshoes, you may love what you find!

If you need any other information about the area trails or snowshoe rentals, don't hesitate to contact us at Faithful Street Inn. We can make sure you are outfitted for a great day out in the snow!

Cubs make their West Yellowstone Debut!

Grant and Roosevelt, two orphaned grizzly bear cubs made their debut this past week at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone. Though the cubs have been reluctant to leave their dens, they are starting to explore around the Discovery Center.

The cubs have been doing very well, in part due to the fact that they have remained together. Losing a mother can be quite stressful on grizzly cubs and the Discovery Center is doing everything possible to keep these boys feeling secure and safe.

The cubs were named after US Presidents whose policies greatly influenced Yellowstone National Park. You can go by and visit them at the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center!

Where's the Snow?

October seemed to come and go quickly in West Yellowstone, dusting the valley with gold and gray tones and leaving a bit of the white stuff on its way out. Now that November is here and winter is closely calling we can't help but wonder, "Where's the snow?" We know it's on its way and we are anxious for all the winter activities awaiting us.

Have you spent time in West Yellowstone in the winter? It's a great time of year to visit our friendly community and the outdoor events are plentiful. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, Ranger lead walks, wildlife viewing, snowmobiling and tons of special events sprinkled across the season make for a wonderful winter in West Yellowstone. Won't you join us?

Faithful Street Inn still has cabins available for winter guests, but we encourage you to book fast as winter is a very popular time here. Just one visit will show you why!

Do you have a great Winter West Yellowstone story? We would love to hear it and add it to ours - post in the comments below!
