While visiting our adult children in Steamboat during Christmas, we wanted to try snowshoeing. We found Yampatika through Trip Advisor and could not have been more pleased. Morgan in the office was very responsive and helpful in arranging an appropriate excursion for our family of parents in their 60s and "kids" and their friends in their 20s. Karen, our very... More

My sisters & I were visiting Fish Creek Falls and a nice young lady asked if we would like a free guided tour - well of course we were questioning the "free" and soon realized this is part of what this organization does. We had a wonderful guided walk up to the Falls and learned so... More

We did two of the snowshoe tours with Yampatika naturalists. The first was at the Legacy Ranch. It was an easy walk in the open fields around the ranch house. The second was on Howelsen Hill and was much more strenuous. You bought a lift ticket up to the starting point. The walk went higher and then came all the... More
