Wendy provided us with a great day of fun, exercise, and exploration! Our group was me, my colleague, and her girlfriend. We are all reasonably fit individuals and Wendy made sure that we were going at a pace that was comfortable for all, providing appropriate rest breaks and checking in to ensure we were all comfortable. Wendy made sure that we had everything we needed. She brought snacks, a warm drink, treats, and hand/foot warmers for us. The equipment was great. Her driving through snowy mountains was great. We were lucky to have been there on a day that it was snowing. It felt like we were walking through a snow globe! To top it all off, she gave us restaurant recommendations for the remainder of our stay in Denver. I got to check one of them out (Linger) and it was fabulous. Thank you Wendy! Our trip to Denver was made better by meeting you!


We had a great hike! Wendy gave us all the info we needed to be prepared and she provided all the equipment for the hike. Learning about the history of the area was interesting. The scenery was beautiful and the hike was not to strenuous for us non hikers but we got a great workout in.


Words can’t even begin to describe the awesome time we had with Lisa for our snowshoe hike. She was so patient with us as we started out. Being from South Louisiana, we had no idea where to even start. She picked us up from our hotel in downtown Denver, provided all the gear we needed, taught us how to use it, and we set off. Lisa was knowledgeable about the area and very personable. We left our trip felling like we had been friends for years. I will recommend this hike to anyone and everyone who is thinking about taking a trip to Colorado.


I had booked this tour as a suprise for my fiancee on our recent trip to Denver. She kept sharing with my how much she wanted to go snowshoeing, so I surpised her with this tour from Yeti Set Go! Our guides, Wendy and Alex were unbelievable. Immediately after I had booked the tour, Wendy reached out to me to explain what we should bring and what to expect on the hike. In the days leading up to our tour, Wendy was extremely responsive with any and all questions that I had. On the day of the tour, we were picked up at our hotel in downtown Denver by Wendy and Alex and were driven our to the trail head. The conversation was lively and both were eager to learn about my fiancee and myself. Once at the trailhead, they supplied us with everything that we needed to get the full experience (Snowshoes, gaiters, trekking poles, etc.). We hiked for a total of five miles with a nice lunch break in between. During the break, we ate sandwiches that Wendy had prepared for us with some hot chocolate to keep warm. If you are looking to get an outdoor experience in the Denver area, there is no one else I would recommend but Wendy and Alex. They will do everything they can to ensure you have the best day! This was an unbelievable experience and my fiancee had a blast! Thank you so much for making it such a memorable day!!


This tour was great, not only experiencing the beautiful mountains and scenery (and learning about the history of the area) but also it was super easy to get to the pickup spot with all the helpful information that was provided beforehand. Being from out of state (one without actual winter) this was sooo helpful. Tips- hand warmers for your gloves make a huge difference, wear 2 layers of everything, plenty of chapstick and you’ll have a great time!
