Meet Clyde Seely
“Clyde and his wife, Linda, purchased Three Bear Lodge, something Clyde could have never imagined when he first began working there as a laundry boy at age nineteen.”
Growing up on a small family farm in the shadows of Yellowstone National Park, Clyde Glen Seely learned the importance of hard work, strong family ties and making the best of any circumstance. His first childhood responsibility was feeding bum lambs on the farm in Twin Groves, Idaho.
In 1965, after completing his Bachelor’s degree, Clyde Seely came to West Yellowstone to teach at the local high school. While teaching, he and his wife, Linda, purchased Three Bear Lodge, something Clyde could have never imagined when he first began working there as a laundry boy at age nineteen.
Since then, Clyde has developed and operated multiple businesses, served in local ecclesiastical leadership, volunteered on many boards and committees, and helped revolutionize tourism in West Yellowstone.
Clyde has frequented Washington D. C. as a leading advocate for the proper use and balance of snowmobiles and snowcoaches in Yellowstone National Park and has been inducted into the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame.
Today, he still continues to use his “farm boy” work ethics and passion for West Yellowstone to make a difference in the lives of those around him.
Clyde and Linda are the parents of five children and eleven grandchildren.
