Yellowstone and the Cooke City area is a very special place with lots of new experiences and adventures for you to try. It is probably very different from what you are used to, which means there are different risks here than you may have faced before. We care very deeply about your personal safety at The Alpine, but you have to take responsibility for your own safety.
Traffic accidents are the greatest cause of death and injury in the National Park. Drive cautiously, watch for wildlife, use pullouts and do not stop in the middle of a roadway.
