Full description
Delight in a half-day snowmobile adventure in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Learn how to lean into turns and shift your weight to stay on the trail as you go through gorgeous and varied landscapes. Choose to drive and ride your own snowmobile, or have a double sled with a passenger. Meet your guide at the shop where the snowmobile suits, boots, and helmets are kept, and borrow what you need. If you have downhill ski clothing, that works for this activity as well. Once suited up, go to the trailhead where the machines are parked and receive instructions about operating your snowmobile. Although the adventure begins on relatively flat terrain to allow you to become familiar with driving, don't expect a wide groomed road/trail for this adventure. The snow conditions and snow depths are a big influence. Once you've got the hang of driving, climb and descend, follow twists and turns, and go as fast as you are comfortable; you will gain confidence as the ride progresses. If conditions and abilities allow, there will be time to ride freely and play in open meadows. Take a break and explore the site of the historic trapper's cabin, deep in the midst of the forest. The potbelly stove will be lit, water warmed for drinks, and snacks readied for your arrival there. Here, relax, chat, and soak in the pristine and remote surroundings. Learn about the history of the cabin and the area, and hear stories of adventures and secrets. Prior to heading back, enjoy a special treat feeding the wild birds that frequent the cabin area. They will alight on your hands and take food if you are still. Then, continue your trip and return to the trail head, possibly taking a new, exciting trail. Finally, travel the short distance to the shop where you can return any gear you have used.

What a great snowmobiling experience! Toby and Joe were awesome guides and led the pace perfectly. There were 4 adults in our group and we were paired with 3 young ladies. We didn’t see and other groups on the trail which was perfect. There were tons of turns and cutbacks on the trail and the break at the old trappers cabin was perfect! The guides let us go freestyle in a couple of the meadows which was really fun. I would book this again in a heartbeat!

Amazing experience! We we’re outfitted by our guide with nice warm gear, followed by a helpful quick intro of the snowmobiles. We went on a cool trail into the woods and stopped for snacks and refreshments at the halfway point at a beautiful unique cabin in the woods. The weather was just gorgeous that day. On our way back we did some freestyle off the trail rides. We had a blast!

Our snowmobiling trip with Pat and Toby wasn’t our first but it was our best ever! I’m 62 but felt 22 on this trip! My son and his wife went also and had the best time ever! This trip is much more enjoyable than the Yellowstone snowmobile trip. There is no comparison!
