Guided Cross-country Ski Tour Details and Itinerary

  The day will start with a pick up from your place of lodging.  Entering through the Yellowstone Park's north entrance in Gardiner, MT, we will drive to the appropriate x-country Ski route or snowshoe trail. We utilize trails in northern Yellowstone between Mammoth Hot Springs to the northeast entrance near Cooke City, MT. During the day, your private guide will instruct on the fundamentals of the chosen activity. We like everyone to feel safe and comfortable! Throughout the day, learn about the winter ecology, history,  geology, and all aspects of Yellowstone. Plus, the winter is a great chance to see wildlife.

"Dear Chris,
I am too old to to know how to review on Yelp. 
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Gabriel skiing. He was friendly, flexible and knowledgeable. We had taken a wildlife tour earlier in the week but learned so much more with Gabriel on the ski tour! 
Thank you for a great day for me and my family!
