Deep snow, spectacular scenery and the vastness of the West draw snowmobilers from far and wide to the Bighorn Mountains. Riding opportunities are both challenging and endless in these rugged and inviting mountains, offering some of the most enticing snowmobiling in the world.
“You can throw snowmobilers into that rough and tumble mix–because we like a rollicking good time on a snowmobile and Wyoming definitely delivers. You just about can’t go wrong riding a snowmobile anywhere in the Cowboy State. The snow is light and dry and that leads to power riding that many snowmobilers crave. Add to that some of the best hill climbing the West has to offer—along with some of the best trails—for those who don’t like that part of the rough and tumble riding. …you can be sure you won’t be disappointed when it comes to snowmobiling in Wyoming” as stated in SnoWest Western Guide 2006.
