Our half-day and full-day snowmobile tours let you explore more than 500 acres of groomed trails along the famous Continental Divide Trail. It’s an exhilarating winter adventure that immerses you in the beauty of Wyoming’s winter.
You’ll have one of our experienced guides to lead you on the tour. We provide you with the outer wear, helmet, gloves and goggles. We recommend you dress in layers to help keep you warm under the insulated bibs. Choose material that wicks away moisture to prevent getting chilled.
We start each trip with an overview of how each four-cylinder snowmobile operates as well as a safety overview. We’d also offer these tips to think about prior to your snowmobile trip.
The trails you’ll be riding on are groomed, but the driver still needs to be vigilant to watch for any limbs, trees, rocks or other debris that might have fallen on the trail. You also need to aware of others, like Nordic skiers and sled dog teams, as well as any animals that might be out.
Stay On the Trail
The groomed trail is there for a reason. The ground underneath is solid and prepped specifically for winter activities. If you wander off the trail, you risk venturing into unstable areas that could pose significant risk.
You might be tempted to open up the throttle, but it’s not a good idea. Again, this is a multi-use trail and we need to be respectful of others out recreating. Plus, the higher the speed, the less time you have to react to avoid an accident.
Steer clear of lakes, streams, rivers and other areas that ice over. Unless you’re a local, you won’t know the depth of the ice and besides, it’s generally a bad idea to risk riding across an icy surface.
Let riders behind you know about your movements beforehand. For example, a left arm extended indicates an upcoming turn in that direction. A left arm extended and moving up and down means we’re slowing.
Snowmobiling and Alcohol Don’t Mix
Just like driving a car, operating a snowmobile after you’ve had a few drinks is a terrible idea. You want to be alert and ready to react to any sudden changes. Alcohol delays those reflexes.
Backcountry Self Tours
Sometimes guests choose to rent or bring their own snowmobile to explore the backcountry without a guide. Whether you’re familiar with the area or not, we always advise staying up to date on the day’s forecast and avalanche advisory. The Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center is a great source of comprehensive information and data regarding avalanche advisories, avalanche events, weather, and snow data for our area.
