Spring Skiing in Yellowstone - Up Avalanche Peak on May 3rd

Sylvan Pass and Avalanche Peak, in Yellowstone, can be a spring treat. The road over Sylvan Pass and out to Cody opened up on May 2nd and we got up early to take a look at Avalanche Peak on the 3rd. We left Gardiner at 6ish, found PLENTY of snow at the trailhead (about 6 feet), started up at about 8:30, grunted to the summit in 3 hours and enjoyed some recreational gravity on the way back.

Interesting and great time of year. Out there with skis, poles, avalanche beacons, shovels and probe poles - and bear spray.

We were back to the trailhead by 1, soaked up some sun then headed to Canyon for some food at Delaware North's store at Canyon.

There's so much to love about this place. Hit the PLAY button to watch the video below:

We saw wolf AND bear tracks. It will be a few weeks before much of the snow comes off. Come summer, I think that Avalanche Peak offers one of the more accessible knock-your-socks-off views in Yellowstone.
