East Gate to Yellowstone

Indian Paintbrush

The East Gate to Yellowstone is Scheduled to open May 5, 2017.  Other roads are either open or will open shortly after that date!  This is a great time to see the great Grizzly Bears as they emerge from their dens and begin foraging for food.  They begin locating winter kill bison, deer, elk and other animals that did not make it through the winter.  Remember that bears are wild and require a lot of distance.  They can cover ground is a very short amount of time and mama bears are very protective of their cubs.  Keep a very large distance from bears!  It's going to be a great year in the Big Horn Basin.  We received a lot of snow this year and the flowers are expected to be spectacular!  Cody just got 2 inches of very wet snow two days ago.  It will make all the fauna and flora pop!  Wapiti Mountain Cabins are ready to start receiving guests and I look forward to meeting the many guests who pass through this most amazing area!  Give yourself a few days with us.  There is so much to do and see in Cody, Yellowstone and the Big Horn Basin from sightseeing, White Water Rafting, Horseback riding, Wild Horse viewing, Helicopter rides, the Cody Night Rodeo, Shoot a Live Gatling Gun, see the Cody Gunfighters in front of the Irma Hotel nightly, take a historical trolley ride, Two different dinner and show attractions, Visit Old Trail Town (Resting place of Jeremiah Johnson) and don't forget the World Famous Buffalo Bill Center of the West (you get a two day ticket and it take both days to see all of the amazing history, gun gallery, plains indian museum and more).  There is a lot to do and see here and you will want to come back year after year.  Give me a shout if you are heading this way and let me help you have an awesome vacation!!!
