Every year during Thanksgiving week cross-country skiers from all over North America come to West Yellowstone to take part in the Yellowstone Ski Festival. For over 30 years this event has marked the beginning of the Nordic ski season on the Rendezvous Ski Trails. The festival features a series of Nordic skiing master classes, competitive races, Biathlon races, the On Snow Gear Demo, and an Indoor Ski Show.
You can test your own fitness and techniques on the trail or enjoy watching various events around and meet some of the famous skiers. Enjoy various activities during the day and have fun at the expo and numerous resturants filled with like-minded people.
