Backcountry Snowmobile Tours near Jackson Hole
Improve Your Skills
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned sledder…
As the snowmobile world explores more of the mountain every year, there is always a new challenge. We have ample back-country terrain to challenge and advance your riding abilities to a new caliber. We are fortunate to call home to an area that receives hundreds of inches of dry, fluffy powder annually.
Some of our rides can start less than an hour drive from Jackson Hole, yet don’t see the crowds like Yellowstone NP or Togwotee Pass. We seek the less tracked out country…the stuff you dream about. Tree riding, hill climbs, and meadow powder are all on the daily agenda here–the only limitation is your own precautions. Depending on mountain conditions, we meet at varied locations in Western Wyoming. Riding in the back-country is a workout never experienced by the green rider. In order to ride powder, the rider must be significantly more involved in weight distribution, throttle control, and confidence. Off trail travel allows the rider to view the mountain with a different eye…you see new lines, new challenges and find superhuman abilities within. Come, let us show you what consumes us…all winter long
Wyoming Back-country Sledding
Prior to each getting the sleds in the snow, we will discuss each riders’ abilities and goals. Since we have a variety of options, this helps us determine the best starting point, thus it is essential that you give us an accurate self-assessment. Avalanche awareness and safety will be discussed on all rides, but is mandatory on our advanced rides.
We offer a range of skill from Back-country Introduction to Advanced Riding Off Trail
Into to the BC
Beginners look no further! Your guide will show you the basics of off trail sledding, go over avalanche safety/procedure and will teach you how to get “unstuck”. Yes, you will be getting stuck, but getting out is easy! (most of the time).
So you know how to ride pow, but haven’t taken it much further? Here you go…whatever it is you haven’t done and want to do, we will find the terrain and go do it. Side hill, tree riding, hill climbs, cliff hucking & meadow powder can all be taken advantage of, and learned on this ride. Avalanche awareness, safety/procedures will be carried out on these trips.
$500/day 1-2 sledders $200/p additional
On all these trips, we recommend using 800 Powder Sleds. If you do not have your own, you will have to rent one. We can provide rental information, and will even include transporting the sleds in most cases.
