Snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park
Ride on your own terms
Snowmobile packages are available from early December to late March.
Yours for the taking; over 300 miles of groomed, marked trails
West Yellowstone, Montana has repeatedly been ranked as the Top-Rated Snowmobile Area in the west according to SnoWest Magazine reader's survey, The Western Guide to Snowmobiling. West Yellowstone is to snowmobiling what Aspen is to skiing, or Honolulu to surfing: the place where the activity is much more than just that; it's a way of life. Yellowstone National Park is considered by many to be the world-class snowmobiling capital of the world.
The trail system begins right in town where snowmobilers share city streets with motorists. Guided snowmobiling treks depart daily during the snowy season to explore the sights and sounds of Yellowstone National Park. Outside the park, on U.S. Forest Service land adjacent to West Yellowstone, discover over 300 miles of groomed, marked, and patrolled trails that start just outside your hotel door at one of the Park Gate Lodges. Many of West Yellowstone's snowmobile riders prefer these quieter trails over the well-traveled national park trails. On individual excursions or guided snowmobile tours, you can ride your snowmobile over the Continental Divide, leave the trail to play in the powder, and encounter rare wildlife.
There are many treasures to see during your Yellowstone snowmobiling adventure, including Old Faithful Geyser, Mesa Falls, the headwaters of the Snake River, and panoramic views overlooking Yellowstone, Montana, Idaho, and the Grand Tetons. You can even ride to snowmobile-only resorts for lunch!
Turn the key and get ready for the time of your life. If you've ever mowed a lawn, you have the basic skills to pilot a snowmobile. And if not, our experienced guides can teach you! The snowmobiles used for our guided tours are electric start, 4-stroke snowmobiles that are clean, quiet, and comfortable. They feature backrests, reverse, and heated hand, thumb, and "bum" warmers for driver and passenger.
Winter Access News: The National Park Service (NPS) recently issued a "one year rule" allowing up to 318 commercially guided, "best available technology" snowmobiles into the park per day. For full details please visit nps.gov.
