2023 Yellowstone Ski Festival

Fall season is around the corner which means the West Yellowstone Ski Festival and Clinics will be here before you know it. This year’s festival takes place November 18th - November 26th 2023 with clinics starting on Tuesday November 21st.  


We had some tough news in June. Ski Festival clinic director and President of the West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation, Drew Barney passed away unexpectedly in his sleep while on a bike tour. Drew was one of the founders of the original “Fall Camp”. Although it’s been incredibly sad for the whole community, we are also honored to keep Drew’s legacy going with the Ski Festival and Clinics. Plans are underway for an après ski gathering on Friday Nov. 24th to honor Drew. 


Jump Start Your Ski Season
You’ll log more time ‘on snow’ than any other place you’d be during this week.  


Exceptional Coaches
Come and join our professional coaching staff who will help you get the most out of the 2023-2024 ski season. We’ll provide a solid understanding of technique and give you the tools and drills to gain strength and efficiency, and propel your skiing to the next level.


Rendezvous Trails and Grooming
Historically speaking, the West Yellowstone Rendezvous trail system has some of the best early-season snow in the country and is groomed by a team of top groomers in the industry. While we can’t control the weather, we’re hoping the snow falls early and often this season.


Something for Everyone 

The Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center is open every day, giving you the rare opportunity to safely view grizzly bears, wolves (bonus: the bears don’t hibernate, so they’re visible year round) and playful river otters. For a break from the outdoors, catch a Hollywood hit or the breathtaking nature documentary, “Yellowstone,” on the aptly named Yellowstone Giant Screen theater at a whopping six stories tall (bonus: at night a Hollywood featured film can be seen).


Fun, Inspiring, Welcoming
The feedback we hear most each year is that the festival and clinics are fun, inspiring and welcoming. For XC ski enthusiasts, it’s the place to be.
