He's very knowledgable about the area and had lots of information for us along the way. We stopped for delicious homemade snacks and hot drinks at a... More

Joel organized the tours well and shared many interesting stories about the forest, animals and his experience in the Rocky Mountain. Plus, the bar and hot chocolate he provided were delicious. I do recommend this tour for everybody and you... More

My wife and I went with Joel on a private snowshoe tour this Monday. We are novices on snowshoes and we really wanted to learn from an expert. It was great. Joel is knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and got us comfortable on snowshoes. As I think about, we certainly could have gone off on our own on a... More

We were a little unsure of the half day experience worrying that it would be too long however the time passed so quickly that before we knew it - sadly it was over. The kids... More
