Located at the West Entrance to Yellowstone National Park and sitting within the Gallatin National Forest, meeting planners find this “Hub of Yellowstone Country” excels in exceeding the needs and interests of their conference attendees. Nature at its best provides picture perfect days within Yellowstone National Park. Nearby, day trips include Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, the Visitors Center at Earthquake Lake, which tells the story of the 1959 earthquake that dammed the Madison River; Hebgen Lake Recreation Area, with swimming, boating, and fishing; and the old gold mining towns of Virginia City and Nevada City, which give a glimpse into a bygone era.

WINTER: There’s nothing like a day on our fantastic snowmobile, snowcoach, and cross-country ski trails to put a glow in the eyes and roses on the cheeks of every visitor.

SPRING: What a great time for cycling. Traffic is light, streams are rushing, baby bison and elk are being born and the countryside is greening.

SUMMER: The list is long and the experiences unforgettable. Hike, horseback ride, tour, fish, take pictures, watch wildlife – time is the only thing in short supply.

FALL: Aglow in aspen gold, this is an especially inviting time for fly fishers and mountain bikers. Bright days and crisp nights mark this quieter period in Yellowstone Country.

The Museum of the Yellowstone, open summers, occupies the great old Union Pacific Railroad Depot and features exhibits transportation and visitation to Yellowstone National Park. The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, a year-round educational facility devoted to preserving the grizzly bear and wolf, provides opportunities to see both in their natural habitat. The ultimate motion picture experience can be found at the Yellowstone IMAX Theatre, where the grandeur of Yellowstone erupts year-round on its giant six-story screen. Numerous shops offer gifts and souvenirs, arts and crafts, Western wear, and sporting goods, while day spas provide ample opportunity for special pampering. On summer evenings visitors can also enjoy the lively, acclaimed Playmill Theatre.
