Riverside Ski Trail, Yellowstone National Park Professional Review and Guide

"The Riverside Ski Trail crosses very easy terrain. New skiers can try out the sport and ski to impressive views inside America’s first national park. No snowshoes or skate skiers here. Locals send families and photographers on this trail, which glides along the Montana portion of the Madison River just inside Yellowstone’s boundary.

Views include the 10,336-foot Mt. Holmes and the Gallatin Mountain Range. Bison, elk, and moose frequent the river area and sometimes use the packed trail. Surface quality: Intermittently machine-groomed."

As the guide says, this trail is groomed for classic skiing and well-marked with orange tags affixed to trees along the route. More of a sense of solitude here as the trail narrows passing through the forest. Area of interest for snowshoers too. The classic track was decent.
