Cross Country Ski, Snowshoe, or Fat Bike the Bully! 

On top of all the special events, unique seasonal activities like snow snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, on fat biking along the groomed trails at Bully Pulpit Golf Course have become one of those "best kept secrets" of winter in Medora. 

We'll post a detailed trail map when the snow starts falling.

After your winter workout, you'll be able to grab a bite at the Little Missouri Saloon and a bed at the Historic Rough Riders Hotel or AmericInn. 

Or, spend a little time exploring the Chateau de Mores Interpritive Center. The man who founded Medora, and named it for his wife, has some really cool stories to be found at the interpretive center. 

Explore TRNP under a blanket of snow! 

Track down the wild horses, check out the bison, spend a little time exploring the Visitors Center in Medora or, for the brave adventurer, do a little winter camping in Cottonwood Campground. Theodore Roosevelt National Park hosts some remarkable sights!
