One of my coworkers honeymooned in a snow cabin- that sounds like it might be something for you. I’m pretty sure the cabin was made of ice 100%. It was in Colorado.

(I actually got married at #1 Emerald Lake Lodge!)

 

 

Yellowstone National Park west entrance is open and you take a snow cat to Old Faithful Lodge.

Jackson Hole, WY would be a palce to go with lodging of all sorts – plenty of snowmobiles to rent and take a sleigh ride though the elk refuge!  You can also dog sled near Jackson.  They have a sled and soak where you go 10 miles to a hot springs resort, soak and then take the dog sled back.

I live pretty close to the Tetons if you need real info!

Yes, if you did Tetons AND Yellowstone (which your $25 pass will be good for both), you cannot use the south entrance where Teton/Yellowstone parks share a boundary (usually this is the easiest way in the summer). 

You’d have to drive in the north entrance in Gardiner, MT (Mammoth area) if you want to drive into the park with your own car.  But the west entrance (near West Yellowstone, MT) I believe is groomed for “over-snow vehicles” as the Old Faithful Lodge is open in the winter and at times some of the other entrances.

 

This link will tell you when over-snow vehicles are allowed and at which entrance.

All roads and entrances, with one exception, are closed to motor vehicle travel. Some may be groomed for over-snow vehicles. The north entrance road from Gardiner to Cooke City, MT, is open to wheeled vehicles and may close due to storms. Snow tires are recommended, and often required. You must return to the north entranceto leave the park.

The Tetons/Jackson Hole are great for non-skiiers. Gorgeous area with lots to do. We went to Crestted Butte CO a couple years ago and it was wonderful. It is a lot of skiing but there are also snow mobiles and dog sleds and a fun little town. I’ve also heard Estes Park CO is a nice place.

The Lake Placid Lodge is my dream cabin location. We were considering getting married there but the thought of planning a ‘destination wedding’ definitely brought me back to reality. Lake Placid has plenty of non-skiing activities all times of the year.

Just a warning – LPL is totally a luxury hotel in a rustic location therefore the prices are high.
