“A "bucket list" day!”

Back Country Snowmobile Adventures
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2013

We spent the entire day (9-5:45) on the snowmobiles in Yellowstone. What an amazing adventure! Our guide, Debbie, was knowledgeable, fun, and experienced. Our tour took us all the way to Old Faithful and back with many stops along the way (food, bathroom, animals, waterfalls, basins, geysers) to and from there. This is such a great way to see the park. In the summer everyone is allowed in, but in the winter only a certain number of tours are allowed in so it is not crowded. Being on the "sled" (snowmobile) and one with nature is an experience I'll never forget. We saw bison, elk, coyote and swans. The best way to experience Yellowstone! My 12 year old twins rated this vacation day just under Atlantis!

The jumpsuits that you can rent are the bomb! The only thing that was cold was my toes and finger tips for a bit. The heated hand warmers and seat warmers rock!

Our hotel recommended Back Country for our trip into Yellowstone and thank goodness we listened. We had Skip and he knows the area like the back of his hand. He answered every question we had. But he did more than that, he talked to each of us on our walks,and made sure that there were enough stops for everyone. I would definitely go with Skip on another tour.

As seniors who have travelled around the world this was an excellent sight seeing event. The sleds were modern and in excellent condition. Staff were very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Mindy, our guide did an excellent job and was very profession and really concerned about our impact on the ecosystem and environment. She stressed that we stay on dedicated pathways and road ways. She was really cautious while travelling near wildlife. I really appreciated her environmental respect this because I was an environmental biologist before retirement. If you wish to see the Yellowstone Park in the winter We highly recommend Back Country Adventures. Enjoy!

We had a group of 9, and we rented snowmobiles from here for three days. For the first two days, we took a private, guided tour through the park, and on the third day we took them out on our own outside of the park. Over the first two days, we traveled around two hundred miles and experienced Old Faithful, herds of bison, other exciting wildlife, and other scenic attractions. Our guide, Andy, did a great job at answering all of our questions about the park and more, and he made the experience very interactive and engaging. Jerry, the owner, did an outstanding job at making us feel at home in a place so different from where we live. All of the staff at Back Country Adventures made the experience very memorable, and we could not have asked for a better trip. I definitely recommend Back Country.

LOVED our Yellowstone Guided tour. We saw so much on the snow sleds. Debbie, our guide, is the best! A great trip. We will do the tour again.
