Exclusive SnoWest Travel Guide

Published online: Nov 17, 2007 Feature

There aren't many snowmobilers in the North American snowbelt who don't dream of taking at least one sledding trip to the West.

Many snowmobilers make an annual trek West.

Regardless of whether it's your first or hundredth trip, in the West you'll find plentiful snow, a decent amount of groomed trails, thousands more miles of ungroomed trails, lots of wide open spaces, challenging mountains and scenery that is jaw dropping.

Snowmobilers head west for different reasons, most of which were just listed, but nearly all who ride the West agree it is an experience they won't soon forget.

Here at SnoWest Magazine, we love to ride the West. Yes, we live here but we also take full advantage of what snowmobiling the West has to offer.

We love to discover new riding places and try riding spots we haven't been to for a while. We ride all winter long, which spans several months thanks to the long riding season the mountains offer. We still have a ways to go when it comes to riding all the places there are to snowmobile-but we're working on it (with a smile on our face).

Once again we present our exclusive SnoWest Travel Guide, an annual project for us and one we love to share with others.

We believe you'll discover this to be the most comprehensive guide to snowmobiling the western United States and Canada that you'll find anywhere.

Every year we double check our facts, update the information and find new places to include in this guide. We've tried to include every major riding area in the West. We include contact numbers and websites so you can find more information if a certain area piques your interest. Maybe there's a new area you haven't been to you'd like to try. Or a sledding hotspot you've heard others talk about and you just need to experience it yourself. We believe you'll find the information you need right here in the following pages.

We hope you enjoy reading over all the various areas as much as we enjoy putting it together.

Happy sledding.
