That is a question that has more answers than the Internet can provide : )

Our site's Yellowstone Pages has a "things to do" section that is fairly consistent with most people's top interests.  You can also visit the West Yellowstone Chamber site for more insights.  Definitely hit the IMAX theater in West on your way into the park (if you head in that direction!)

I do not believe that there is a lot of snowshoeing in Death Valley.  Their coldest months are Dec, Jan and Feb and the temperature is often in the 60's during those months.
