“Big Al will delight!”

A.A. Taos Ski Valley Wilderness Adventures
Reviewed 21 January 2013

We had a great time on our first snowmobile adventure. Big Al is a real life Cowboy Caricature and quite a delight. First on foremost on his mind was our safety and I really appreciate that - the views were amazing and the tour was first rate. I would highly recommend a snowmobile adventure with Big Al and my family and I will place ourselves in his care for future summer adventures as well!

I had been searching for this under Big Al's which is how I had found it on TSV website. We took the snowmobile tour and had a great two hour ride. Big Al is a hoot from his description of the "shuttle" (Pope Mobile) to the way he gives out instruction and shows you how to care for the machines. Very informative and the care that he puts into making sure that everyone has a good time and is unscathed after the trip. Then, off you go up and down the sides of the mountain to the peak overlooking the ski mountain. At that point, you stop for picture taking and head back down. Very well worth the $70 for your own machine or $90 for two to ride one. Small children and older individuals all enjoyed the trip.

Big Al, our guide on horseback, is a very interesting character, but he is definitely not the main attraction. His horses are exceptionally well-cared for, and Al's instruction--even for proficient riders--ensures that whoever is handling the horse knows exactly what to do. However, the best part of the horseback experience is riding on private land up in the mountains, far away from common or highly-traveled paths. Big Al will take you to the top of a ridge at 12,500 feet, and the view is spectacular! Don't opt for the chuckwagon meal; although it was a fun experience, it's probably not worth the extra money. Altogether a highly worthwhile adventure!
