We had such a great time on our cross country tour! Laura, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable. She was very patient and got us all comfortable on our skis as beginners but we all felt accomplished afterwards and said we’d be ready to rent some skis on our own after her tutorial!


My wife, daughter, and I had an amazing afternoon cross country skiing with our guide Bo. We came with a mixed set of ski backgrounds, from first time to experienced, and Bo struck a great balance between patient instructor and seasoned guide. We appreciated the seclusion of the ski location and Bo’s knowledge of both wildlife and cross country skiing. We saw moose on the drive out and a bald eagle on the drive back, and Bo went above and beyond by taking some extra time so we could see elk, coyote, bison, and bighorn sheep from a lookout near the National Elk Refuge. I would highly recommend Bo as a guide and Eco Tours as an outfitter. This was our third trip with Eco Tours and we plan to do more in the future!


What a great experience!! Our guide Rafael's expertise and passion for the local wildlife and terrain shone through during the cross-country ski tour. His approachable delivery made the experience thoroughly enjoyable, turning the expedition into an educational and delightful adventure.


Laura was a wonderful tour guide. She was knowledgeable with Jackson Hole, the National park and the surrounding areas. We enjoyed listening to her expertise, but we trusted her direction and coaching us. Laura was super kind, she went out of her way to help us with the ski’s, on and off. We will be back and asking for another fabulous guided cross country skiing tour. Thank you!


My friend Rachel and I did cross country skiing with Ryan as our guide! It was just us and he was super helpful (I’m a first timer) and incredibly knowledgeable about the area! Also he’s a photographer and does the photo tours with this company too! Highly recommend the experience was great for a beginner and we saw a lot of wildlife! We saw a coyote, elk, so many moose, wolves, and a cute white ferret! Path was a 10/10


We did the cross country skiing with Laura Krusheski. She was an incredible guide. So much knowledge and experience. It was an absolute pleasure talking to her and asking questions. It was our first time on snow skies. Laura was so patient with us and so thorough with teaching us about them. The sights we saw were absolutely amazing! The snow was wonderful! We learned so much about the wildlife here in Wyoming. Laura came prepared with a plethora of fancy snacks, including several items from local companies, Kate’s Real Food, and Naughty Fruit, both of which I plan to order from soon! She also had all sorts of warm beverages: coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, as well as lots of cold beverages, too. The van that we went in was equipped with hatches on the roof for quick and easy wildlife viewing. This was especially nice as I don’t think any other outfitters offer this. Eco Tours seems to go above and beyond in every single aspect making for an incredible experience! 10/10 would do again!


Harlan was a wonderful guide and cross-country instructor for our group of first-timers. We especially appreciated his deep knowledge of the area and natural wildlife. He had impressive technical expertise and showed genuine interest in getting to know the group and crafting an experience we will never forget!

Overall we truly enjoyed this day. We went with Bo, and he was so kind and helpful, and had a lot of knowledge of the area. The pace was perfectly set, and the whole experience was extremely well run. We rented skis from Teton Mountaineering (one of them recommended by EcoTours), and the location was perfect as it was across the street from the pick-up point. We had a great day, but again Bo was extremely attentive and helpful, while at the same time allowing the three of us to just enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the area. I loved the fact that he didn't feel the need to constantly fill the silence with chatting. At the same time, he took us a bit off the beaten path to get to see Geraldine Lucas' home in the woods.


We had a great time. Really well looked after, excellent guide very professionally run. We will be back for sure. Great day in the park.


The EcoTour guide, Tyler, was right on time picking us up and he was very pleasant to travel with. One of the group needed instruction, so he stayed with her and the other 3 of us went out on our own with his directions. We skied right beneath the Teton peaks and took wonderful photos. We were able to leave our things in the van and snacks and drinks were provided after we skied. The ride was less than 30" from Jackson. I was led to believe by speaking to a Viator representative by phone before we left home that the skis were provided. We had to scramble Sunday night to get skis delivered to us at the pickup area Monday at 7:45 AM. I was not happy about this but it worked out.
