Here’s what’s happening right now!

Thanksgiving in West

If you haven’t experienced Thanksgiving in West, well, this is your year! There’s still time to find a room and have the best family holiday ever.

TUNA Thanksgiving Dinner

You won’t want to miss the TUNA Thanksgiving Dinner! Back after a COVID hiatus, this longstanding TUNA tradition is a true team effort. Please let us know if you’re coming, what you can bring, and especially if you can cook a turkey in your hotel:

TUNA offers several events for Thanksgiving skiers in West Yellowstone.  Our traditional Thanksgiving dinner is held at the Community Protestant Church (505 N Electric St). TUNA buys the turkeys, rolls, a green salad and members provide the side dishes. Come early and socialize with the folks you sailed by on the ski trails earlier in the day. The dinner bell rings at 6 pm. Also, bring along a few dollars to throw into the offering basket. We like to make a sizable donation to the church for the use of their social hall (we want to be invited back next year).

Because the last few years have been uncertain, we request that you please let us know you’re coming, what you can bring, and how many guests will attend by filling out this form:


Where to Stay
