Snowmobiling in Yellowstone Park

A valid state motor vehicle driver’s license in possession is required. A learner’s permit does not qualify.

Maximum speed to Old Faithful is 35 mph except where posted. Speed is checked by radar.

Obey all speed limits and stop signs.

Use hand signals when turning or stopping. Allow enough distance between snowmobiles when traveling. Pass only when safe.

Helmets are required.

Approaching, chasing, molesting, or feeding animals is prohibited. Winter is a time of great stress for wildlife.

Drive on the right side of the road. Drive in single file. Do not idle your machine more than one minute. If you turn around, stay within the road width. When stopping, pull to the far right and park in single file.

Stay on designated roads. Side hilling, any off-road travel is prohibited.
