Depart from the hotel in the morning, a silver and white world along the way, rolling snow mountains, animal tracks crisscross the snowy fields, dense white pine forests undulate, quiet and peaceful The small villages are scattered, and the cowboys gathered in the tavern in the winter, you will lament that the winter in the American mountain states is still charming. Passing through Utah and Idaho, I arrived at the cowboy's hometown at noon-the famous town of Jackson, Wyoming, with a strong western cowboy style, but who knows that Jackson is a wealth of dignitaries and Hollywood stars The place is also a world-famous resort, and members can enjoy the famous Antler Park in the city center. In the afternoon, we will take a horse-drawn sleigh or carriage (depending on the thickness of the snow) to visit the National High-horned Deer Reserve. Every winter, tens of thousands of high-horned deer come here for the winter, and the Grand Teton Mountains tower in the distance. Thousands of high-horned deer are leisurely foraging on the vast forests and snow fields.

Elk Antler Arches Park is a quite popular park, it is mainly popular because of its name and what it contains. The park contains four arches and each arch contains 10,000 pounds of elk antlers.

Jackson Hole is essentially a valley that is situated between the famous Teton Mountains and Snake River. It was given the name of “Hole” because when people enter it, it feels as if they entering a hole.
Jackson town square is well known as within the Wyoming state, the Jackson Hole Town Square, serving as the local activity and events hub. The Town Square is popular, or its distinctive arches that are in shed elk antlers and these arches serve as the park gateways.
In the morning we set off from the hotel to the world-famous ski resort-King's Hill, a place where many Olympic athletes train. Here you can rent ski equipment and clothing at all levels. You will soon be able to experience the fun of skiing (at your own expense) under the instruction of a Chinese instructor (skilled by yourself), and glide on the white and smooth ski slopes. Walking between the blue sky and white snow, the mood also flew happily. The cable car will slowly take us to the top of the mountain, which is more than 10,000 feet above sea level, overlooking the entire Jackson Valley. The rugged valleys, snow, and clear blue sky have merged into a magnificent freehand ink painting. At noon we entered the Grand Teton National Park. Its main peak is the trademark of the famous film company Paramount. The towering peaks of Grand Teton Park are covered with glaciers that are not changed all year round. The ice is clear and clean, which cleans the hearts of tourists. It also depicts the outline of the Grand Teton Mountains, which is spectacular. The Snake River at the foot of the mountain is more like a jade belt. The low level of the river often has a thin layer of advection fog, like a dreamlike wonderland on earth. Overnight in West Yellowstone.

today, the snow bus to take us as we carefully arranged into the world's first national park - Yellowstone National Park! Yellowstone is unique in winter. The natural and special landscapes are not only still warm and surging, but also have a stronger visual effect because of the low temperature. In the thick snow-covered winter, at the same time seeing the ice and snow mingling with the hot springs, the plants on the river bank are different from other frosted dry branches, still green, and can't help but give a thrilling admiration for Yellowstone! Some river sections not only freeze but also emit steam due to the influx of geothermal water, which makes the ice sculptures on both sides of the river sculpted and covered with silver, but the river surface is green and peaceful, flowing like a mythical world! Groups of wild yaks are seen along the way to Yellowstone Park, waiting for tourists to take pictures of them, as if entering a wildlife park. Take a snow bus to travel deep into Yellowstone Park and watch the world's most famous fountain, Old Faithful Spring! Because the temperature is particularly low in winter, the size of each eruption is more spectacular than that in summer! Little Biscuit Fountain Basin, Palette, Madison ... wonderful will follow! Most of the wild animals will come down from the cold mountain in winter to feed in the warm hot spring area, so you can see more wild animals. Overnight in Salt Lake City.

This short but highly entertaining tour was one of the best experiences in my life. Everything went according to the plan and well within the budget. All the five days were unique with each day offering something different. I had never visited the Yellowstone Park during the winters. Through this tour service I was able to visit the park during winter. I really enjoyed each and every aspect of the tourism service. The bus ride was very comfortable and the hotels for the overnight stay were excellent. I wish I had my family along with me as well as they would have really enjoyed this unique travel.
I would definitely recommend the tour to my family and friends. We took this tour on March4th, 2017. I had heard a lot about National Yellowstone Park and how it is better to visit in summer but believe me during winter time it gets even more beautiful. The snow capped mountain and multiple exciting activities just make it worth a visit during winter time. And more importantly winter packages are cheaper than the summer ones. The tour guide was absolutely fantastic. So considerate and such a patient young man, ready to listen to anyone's problems.
Everything went according to the plan and to be fair I think the tour was really awesome. Usually I am a very critical person and usually m very good as far as highlighting loop holes goes. I did not find much to criticize in this tour. The hotels were nice and really had a nice sleep overnight. The dining options were good as well. The destinations were simply fantastic and I did enjoy the Yellowstone Park. The only thing which did not go well for me was the duration. I think the tour can be extended a bit and a few more destinations can be added.
It was a shame that the same people were late at nearly every stop, and I really did feel for tour guide in having to deal with their apparent lack of respect for her, or anyone else on the trip really. Such people do spoil the fun of the entire trip. I think we should think about our behaviours and actions and their effect on others. I was having great time on tour but such behavious of other people rally ruined it for me.
It should be noted that this is obviously highly promoted to Asian people and I was the only Caucasian on the trip, which felt a little awkward, particularly when 2/3 did not speak English. Everyone was was very polite (apart from the family that were continuously late), and one Chinese couple took a liking to me, and it was interesting trying to converse when neither speaks the other language, but they were absolutely lovely. All in all a pretty good tour.
I wish that the rest room on the bus was available. You have to do something about that. It is not fair to tell people to wait for an hour or two for the rest area. If you have the restroom then let people use it. Certain trips were a bit too long. All in all a great tour at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend it.
