I will be more than happy to assist you in finding the right gear for the adventure!
Q: will there be any hiking involved on thIS tour?
Activity during this tour will be limited to short excursions. Most of our travel will be on groomed trails and boardwalks, but occasionally we may need to venture across untracked snow to reach our subject. Participants should feel comfortable with short walks of less than 1-2 miles.

Cold weather can have negative effects on things like camera batteries, camera LCD screens, tripods, and other accessories. We will take every precaution to protect our gear while out in the field.
Q: What Is A Snow Coach?
Snow coaches are specialized, track-converted vehicles designed to navigate through the deep snow of the Yellowstone interior. Snow coaches and snowmobiles are the only means of travel in Yellowstone's interior during the winter months. The coaches are moderately heated, but we will be relying on the proper clothing to stay warm and comfortable during the tour.
