  Experience Yellowstone's Subzero Highs

NOTE: This offer has expired. For more information on extreme trips, visit Off the Beaten Path.

This winter you can join noted ski guide Jonathan Wiesel on a cross-country ski tour of Yellowstone National Park. On the trip, created and led by Off the Beaten Path, a travel company specializing in the American West, you'll go where the skiing and wildlife-watching are best—following wolf and elk tracks, listening for coyotes' howls, and traversing untracked meadows and thick forests. It's an opportunity to share an exciting experience with like-minded trekkers who read ADVENTURE. We hope we'll be able to point you in the direction of many more such events in the future.


To sign up for the trip, e-mail Off the Beaten Path, at, with the answer to the following question: How many wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park in 1995 and 1996 after a 70-year absence? (Hint: You can find the answer in "Yellowstone's Subzero Highs" in the January/February 2000 issue of ADVENTURE.) Hurry! Space is limited.

Off the Beaten Path will e-mail you by January 31, 2000, if you are chosen.
