Snowcoach tour

We had a wonderful day trip to Old Faithful. Our guide, Max, was very knowledgeable and accommodating, and we would ask for him if we ever did a second trip.

Surprised to read the mostly positive reviews here particularly in light of our experience - although the most recent one confirms our experience. Our guide Mindy was not particularly friendly during our tour and then poorly handled an accident I got into when my snowmobile careened out of control into a parked truck while we were riding on pavement back...

Snowmobiling in Yellowstone? Do it! An amazing adventure and one that you will not regret. Just make sure to choose another operator if you really want to have the best experience possible. The experience itself is the reward but a good guide can enhance or take away from that experience. Unfortunately for us, we ended up with Mindy. Interestingly enough,... More

Our group of 6 reserved our snowmobiles for 3 days. 2 days were guided tours through the park and the third day was for an unguided adventure. We rented our gear (snowsuits, boots, gloves, helmets) through them for a very reasonable fee and we were plenty warm for the low temps (12-36 degrees F not counting wind chill). The machines...

The owner is very helpful. He made sure our snow mobile adventure was outstanding. He had all the right clothing and equipment to rent to keep everyone warm. The guides Zak and Max were friendly and gave us plenty of bison and other animal sightings.

BCA is definitely worth the money! We arrived at WYS on a very snowy Friday, immediately booked a tour for the next day. We were awarded with a gorgeous sunny Saturday, cold an crisp but pleasant. Our guide Pierre was a fountain of information on the park. He definitely knows Yellowstone and its fauna. We saw some elk, lots of... More

We did the snow mobile canyon tour on a Friday and the snow mobile Old Faithful Tour on Saturday. Max was our guide. Jerry the owner is great too. The number of bison we saw was too many to count, up close, passing them on the road. Elk, moose, coyote and trumpeter swans. So much fun. If I had to... More

We have rented sleds with Back Country several times over the last few years. Sleds are in perfect condition. You can keep them overnight if desired. Just have to show up at the shop around 5 for a free fill up of gas and oil. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Full snowmobile clothing is available so you don't... More

Looking at some of the other views , I guess we got the wrong tour guide . As she was rude and not very accommodating . She was on a schedule and to bad if you wanted to stop and take a picture of wildlife. We were not the only party on the tour that was disappointed with the ride.... More

Perfect from start to finish. This is one of those "must do" bucket list kind of activities. Our kids declared this to be our best vacation ever. Spectacular adventure with stunning scenery. We saw abundant wildlife up close - bison, elk, coyotes, even Bald Eagles. We were lucky to have Max as our guide. Note: The equipment insurance on the... More
