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.

I had never snowmobiled before so I wasn’t sure whether I would love it or not, but let me tell you I absolutely did! It was so exhilarating and the two guides were fabulous. The mid tour stop at the trapper cabin for snacks and drinks was amazing as well, we really enjoyed talking to Pat. I can’t recommend this highly enough and wish we had done the full day instead of just the half day!

Our entire experience was smooth, enjoyable, and the highlight of our time in WY! As a first timer on a snow machine, I left feeling confident, yet the guides were happy to help when I ventured into powder in the meadow and promptly got stuck :) My only complaint was that the trip wasn't longer!

We met Toby, our guide & he showed us to the meeting spot at the machines. He went over a few do's and don'ts and off we went. He took us on trails through the woods, stopped and let us play "free-style" in an open field, then through the woods to the trappers cabin for a warm drink, time to walk around and explore, and take a breather. There we met up with Joe, the 2nd guide. From there we went on more trails and to another big open field for more "freestyle" where we really cut up & had a blast! After about 30-45 mins of fun we headed back to the finish line. I can not say enough good things about Toby and Joe! They helped us out figuring the best way to ride, helped us get unstuck in the 3' snow, and just let us go to have fun riding. I have been on many excursions in my days, however with these guys and the pure excitement if this wasn't the best one yet it is definitely a top 3. Toby and Joe, you guys ROCK!!!
