Description

Whether you are a cross-country enthusiast or you would like to try a fun, new outdoor activity, this snowshoeing tour is for you!

Yellowstone is the first national park in the U.S. and in the whole world, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It extends over 8,983 km² (3,468.4 sq mi) in the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. Known for its wildlife and geothermal features, Yellowstone contains beautiful lakes, canyons, rivers, and mountain ranges, as well as unique species of plants and wild animals.

Winter is a great time in Yellowstone. The crowds have gone and the snow has covered the park’s vast meadows and the stunning Rocky Mountains (4,401 m) on the north, creating a magical scenery.

This snowshoeing day tour is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the park’s natural beauty completely on your own. Yellowstone offers hundreds of miles of remote backcountry trails, along snowy forests, frozen waterfalls, and steaming geysers and hot springs. We will take several northern tracks between the Mammoth Hot Springs area and the park’s northeast entrance near Cooke City, Montana. Along the way, the guide will provide participants with the fundamentals of snowshoeing and will explain some interesting aspects of Yellowstone’s winter ecology and rich natural history.

Winter is also the best time to spot gray wolves, when their dark coats stand out against the bright snow. If we are lucky, we might also see buffalos, elks, bison, mule deer, and coyotes!

Snowshoeing provides easy access to remote locations with almost no risk. Therefore, this tour is open to everyone, without any specific fitness level or previous experience requirement.

If you are looking for other winter activities in the area, I recommend the Hyalite Canyon, intro 2-day ice climbing course, the 3-day Bear’s Tooth climb, and the 1-day Bridger Bowl, Montana, guided ski touring.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
