Many groomed trails are ready for use after the first heavy snowfall. The trails start from Sleeping Giant Ski Area and Pahaska Tepee Resort near the East Entrance to Yellowstone Park. This area offers over 25k of groomed tracks and over 24 miles of challenging forest service trails through the native wilderness. Cross country equipment can be rented at Pahaska Tepee and most sporting goods stores in Cody.
The Wood River Valley Ski Touring Park is 22 miles southwest of Meeteetse and offers 25k of groomed trails, back country trails, a warming hut at the trailhead, and an overnight tent available by reservation. Other trails are groomed in the Crandall / Sunlight Basin area. A more remote, secluded adventure awaits the winter pioneer there. - content from Cody Wyoming Chamber of Commerce
