Even though there was a foot of snow on the ground, we still had a beautiful ride through the Tetons. The views were breathtaking and our guide, Natalie, shared history of the Tetons to help enhance the experience. We had a wonderful time!

Great guides. Very understanding and patient with people from Alabama who never been on a snowmobile. We were overjoyed with Jim and Katie! Thank you for showing us a great excursion. We will be back. Sexton Crew
