Made the last snowmobile trip of the year at Yellowstone with our guide Ray. What an adventure!
We started our day with being picked up at our Hotel by Ray. We then went to a good buffet(included) breakfast. We knew we were in for a long day so we loaded up on French Toast, Waffles, Eggs, and Bacon.
We then went to the Togwotee Store were we geared up in snowmobile suites, boots, gloves. Signed our waivers and headed out for the hour plus ride to Yellowstone.
Once there Ray gave us a thorough explanation of the operation and safety of the snowmobiles and the do's and don'ts while on the trail to Old Faithful.
We followed the paved road that was now covered in many feet of snow, making a few stops to see some great views and take many pictures. Each stop Ray gave us great insight in the history and geology of the area.
Once at Old Faithful we watched the Geyser go off on time and had good lunch.
We then made our way over to some great thermal features for some awesome pictures that included some Bison keeping warm. We continued on back to our starting point making a few more stops along the way for more great pictures, and the return trip to our hotel :- (.
I cant not say enough about our Guide RAY! He was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and really loves his job and it shows. He even did a good job entertaining my 11 year old son Hunter with the some ambush snowball fights. Job Well Done Sir!
If you are planning a trip like this I suggest the following:
1. Dress in warm layers, you can shed some off if need be.
2. Bring a thermal ski neck to cover your neck and cheeks, the air will curl under your face shield and you will feel it.
3. polarizing sunglasses are a must! the sun and snow combination are very harsh on your vision.
4. Eat well before the trip, and bring a energy bar for your pocket this is a ALL DAY TRIP.
5. Moisture wicking or wool socks NO COTTON. especially if your a rider and not driver.
6. Do not attempt if you are not in somewhat decent physical shape.This is a 120 mile ride and the Sleds are very easy to operate, but do require some physical ability that will be required for about 8 hours. Yes you will be ready for a hearty meal when it's over
7. Bring a decent camera on a neck strap, you will take pictures of things you will want to remember for the rest of your life.
8. Enjoy the ride.
