Cross-Country Skiing Glacier National Park
Experience cross-country skiing Glacier National Park in the peaceful quiet of winter.
Let us take you for a glide over the snow-covered landscape and see a place most people only imagine. Our touring areas abound with frozen waterfalls, huge snowy peaks and ice-capped streams. See occasional wildlife and get some fresh air on a private cross-country ski tour.
I would recommend their services whether it is just for a day of snowshoeing or for a backcountry excursion. They also do trips in the other seasons as well. They were pleasant and easy to deal with from the first phone call to when they dropped us off. –Shannon, via tripadvisor.com
