Yellowstone Snowmobile Education Certificate

This course will help prepare you for your snowmobiling trip in Yellowstone National Park. In order to snowmobile in Yellowstone National Park on a non-commercial trip, you must first obtain a permit through the lottery. Once you have a permit, you must also complete this course and be operating a Best Available Technology snowmobile to be allowed into the park.



The purpose of this course is to educate visitors who intend to visit Yellowstone in winter via snowmobile and about the rules and regulations governing winter use in the park, as well as to prepare you for the unique environment of Yellowstone National Park.

This course is part of a non-commercially guided snowmobile access program, which allows members of the public to enter Yellowstone without being accompanied by a commercial guide. This does not mean un-guided access; if you follow the guidance in this course, you will have the knowledge you need to act as a guide for your party. The primary goals of the park are to protect Yellowstone's resources and provide for a high quality visitor experience. Whether you are a novice or an experienced snowmobiler, there are several important things you will need to know about snowmobiling in Yellowstone.

The National Park Service is pleased to provide this education course and the Non-commercially Guided Snowmobile Education Program. Both were developed with input from a working group that includes members of the snowmobiling community, environmental organizations, local businesses, and local government. The National Park Service would like to thank specifically Governor Matt Mead of Wyoming and the State of Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources Recreational Trails Program for providing funding.
