can we do Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in the winter or is better to wait for the summer?

thank you
It's supposed to be amazing in the winter but more challenging, most of the park doesn't get plowed and can only be accessed by snowmobile.

Sunday-Wednesday is quite short, especially if you're not planning on flying into JAC. In any case, I'd say one day in the Tetons and the rest in Yellowstone. If you could stay longer maybe do two days in the Tetons.

Just want to confirm, that it is kids accessible "even with a stroller" Also, is it safe with all the wildlife there?

Much of Yellowstone is stroller accessible.

You should be fine with the wildlife as long as you don't do anything stupid (read: taking a selfy while riding on the back of a bison is NOT a good idea...)

Yes.

They're are no gondolas in the park, but there might be some in Jackson or Teton Village just outside.

And if you try to take a picture of the bison that's 6" away from your open car window with a crappy camera you'll probably just end up with a picture like this:

I wouldn't take young kids to Yellowstone, unless they're fine sitting in a car for long stretches of time. There's alot of driving and getting in and out of the car. Unless of course you just do one area which I recommend anyways.
