Welcome to West Yellowstone, Montana!  West Yellowstone was incorporated in 1966 but has existed as a gateway community to Yellowstone National Park since the early 1900s.  The most recent census reported that West Yellowstone has a population of approximately 1200 people, but our winters are extreme and that number slides a bit during the colder months.   Although we are a very small community, visitation to West Yellowstone tops 3.5 million people per year.  Whether you live here, want to live here, or just plan to visit, we have something here for you.

Notice: April Town Council Meetings have been scheduled for April 8 and April 22, 2014.


We’ve hired a clogging (similar to tap or Irish Dance) instructor and classes have started!  Come register your kids at the Town Offices, $35 for this session.  We have also added a free Exploratory Dance Class for 3-5 Year Olds, please sign up at the Town Offices for this class, too.  Class is scheduled for Mondays at 3:30 PM.  Recital in May!
