Superb snowmobile trip. Great scenery, and loads of wildlife. Our guide, Mindy, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The pace was perfect for our group, with frequent stops for side-hikes. Can't wait to go to the Canyon with them!

Back Country Adventures has really stepped up and filled a void created when Xanterra stopped offering winter shuttle service to Old Faithful from West Yellowstone. People with reservations to stay at Old Faithful have to find their own transportation into the park from West Yellowstone,...More
