Default Planning trip out west. Need suggestions.

Hey guys, new to the forum. I am planning a trip out west with four of my buddies. Three sleds and two snow bikes. We were thinking about going to Wyoming this year and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. We went to Wolf Creek CO last year and it was a blast. We are looking for somewhere with good tree riding and some open areas for hill climbing. The cheaper the lodging the better. We were thinking about hiring a guide for a day or two and then exploring the rest ourselves. Any suggestions you guys have are very appreciated. I have done a little reading on Togwotee and Jackson Hole but the Togwotee lodge is pretty expensive so I would have to find somewhere else to stay and I am curious if there are other places to ride around Jackson other than Jackson Hole. Our trip will be January 12-22 2018.

Thanks guys!!

How is the riding in the Tog? Is it mostly wide open areas or can it get pretty technical? A lot of the videos I see are of people riding in wide open fairly flat areas with mountains all around them...

Alpine, WY. You can ride from the Three River Motel, no trailering to the snow, rooms with kitchens. You can do it cheap. Lots of tree riding close to town for the bikes, e.g., North Murphy. Most bang for the buck, if that's what you're after.

Tog is huge, and you can find anything you want, both close to the highway, and away. You'll trailer every day from Dubois. Crooked Creek has cabins for a group, but wasn't down there last year after the fire, don't know what the trees are like now. Two lowest cost options around Tog.

Togwotee has all types of riding. It also seems like everybody goes there so it gets tracked up quick near the tog lodge. If you go stay at lava mtn. lodge and ride from there or stay in Dubois like decker said and trailer to a lot, that's the cheapest. we stayed at twin pines in Dubois I think it was 80-90 per night, nice place.

Snowy Range wouldn't be a bad idea either. Have a nice hotel (Old Corral), great places to eat and then riding is pretty incredible.

Alpine would be my suggestion. You can ride from town, or choose to drive a little north or south and get into new areas. Lots of good options there. Eric

If you do the snowies, watch for the wind - can shut down safe access to parts for days at a time. Unless you stay in Albany, or want to ride different parts, you'll trailer. Parking can be a pain on weekends. When it's great, it's great. South end had fire this summer, but, really, lots have fire this year. Opening bow in SW MT will be crazy dry, lots of smoke again. Hopefully no new fires this weekend.
