I'm guessing you stayed at the 3 Bears. We were part of a group there the last week of Dec.06.
My wife, daughters and I were the only veterans in our group of 12. The guides do a great job taking you through the park and the surrounding mountains. I got to help our guide dig sleds out up on Two Top. Good thing I run and am in good shape.

Toolmaker we booked our trip with Yellowstone Tour & Travel and stayed at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort. Nice indoor pool, good restaurant and sled rental right on site. Our guide in the park did a good job also. We rode without a guide outside the park.

I was going by the clothing. I believe Yellowstone Tour & Travel is run with the 3 Bear. Did you meet in the theater in the morning? We had a gal named Amy for our guide in the park, she was a real hoot.

Now I am really pumped for our trip to W. Yellow in Feb. We are staying at the Faithful St Inn, one day in the park and then we are on our own. Any suggestions? We are two "mature" couples. Any places to stop on the trails to warm up? Are the trails nice, scenic and marked well? Places we should not miss? Thanks for the info. Looks like we are in for a great time!
