Thoroughly enjoyed the day long trip to view the wild life and scenery in the Teton National Forest. The moose and the mountain sheep showed up on schedule, the elk could have come closer to the road, and the weatherman could have been more cooperative. But it was a very enjoyable time and we had an excellent guide.

We went on a snowmobile trip to Old Faithful in late December, and it was the worst trip ever. None of us had ever been on a snowmobile before, yet the only training we got was to "lean" into turns.

Turns out that the track was so rutted and uneven that we ended up lurching into every rut, and because we weren't trained on how to lean into ruts, we ended up rolling FOUR snowmobiles, causing both injury and accidents.

After the first one, one of the guides said we should just "accelerate through it". When we did that the next time our snowmobile ended up going down a ravine!

Our guides pushed us too fast as well, for the conditions, so we could "see as much of the park as possible" - but instead we didn't even get to see old faithful go off.

Miserable, terrible experience with unqualified guides who really didn't care about our wellbeing. I'd avoid this experience at all costs.

We spent our Christmas snowmobiling to the Granite Hot Springs. When we booked our trip, there were so many great options to choose from, I was afraid to pick the wrong one. I was told that the Granite Hot Springs were a great choice, so we booked that. We had an incredible time! The trip had a bit of everything: trail riding, a destination (hot springs) where we got to go swimming in the middle of winter with snow covered mountains surrounding us on every side, we had lunch in the middle of the mountains, and we got to ride out in the open. While I'm sure I would have had a blast on any of the trips offered, I'm glad we chose to do the Hot Springs. I don't think you can go wrong in any of the trips you choose! Enjoy!

We did a large family guided tour with Jackson Hole Snowmobile Tours which was a perfect way for us all to spend time together, get out into the back country and see the snow fall in the Targhee National Forest. Our group spanned adults and teens who drove the snowmobiles to kids (age 6 and up) who rode as passengers. Our guides, Ben and Pat, we fantastic! Full of enthusiasm and fun facts and there to guide and lend a hand if we got into any snow we couldn't handle. Really a great team. And even though we kept changing the number of participants and snowmobiles we needed right up until the day of our tour, the staff at JHST kept our reservations on track and us organized. The gear that came as part of the rental tour fee was top notch, from the snow machines to the warm suits, gloves and accessories they provided. Really a wonderful day for us all and we could not recommend it more.

New to Jackson are the ghost tours. Great fun for the whole family hearing stories of ghosts and historic happenings. It brings Jackson to life -- or death!
