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
This is a specialized service and requires exceptional guides for this type of trip. It demands a higher level of leadership, and we do not skimp in this area, as we believe that you are here to learn and want a highly skilled and professional guide for your experience. 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
Intro to the Back-Country
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). We will choose areas that allow us to start where your skill level is, and expand as your abilities improve. This is physical, so expect to be tired at the end of the day!
