Snowmobiling

The Snowy Range of Wyoming is one of the best snowmobiling destinations in the country. Explore 200 miles of groomed trails and 120 miles of marked and ungroomed trails through the forested glens and rolling meadows of the Snowy Range from a snowmobile. The Laramie area boasts some of the most consistent and fluffy powder in the American West, receiving over 300 inches of snow per year, and a snowmobile is the perfect way to get acquainted with this vast playground.

The Snowy Range Mountains get over 300 inches of snow every year! There’s plenty of country to explore in the magic alpine zone between 7,000 and 11,000 feet. Temperatures can range from 30F degrees to -30F degrees, so bring appropriate layers, mittens, and face shields.

With marked groomed and ungroomed trails, the area around Laramie offers an incredible variety of snowmobile terrain. Beginners will find gentle hills suitable for a first ride, while more experienced riders can enjoy steep slopes.

Whatever your experience level, a snowmobile can take you far away from the crowds and transport you to the solitude of the high open plains and mountains in deepest winter. Enjoy grand mountain vistas, dense forests, and the wide open sky and be warm and cozy in your hotel by evening.

TAKE CARE OF THE TRAIL

Be a safe, respectful snowmobile rider so future generations can enjoy the Laramie area as much as you do. Wait for enough snow to cover vegetation and give trees and shrubs a wide berth so they aren’t damaged by our recreation. Appreciate animals from a distance so you don’t disturb them. Slow down when you’re around cross-country skiers and snowshoers and give them as much space as possible so you don’t impact their wilderness experience. Finally, respect wilderness areas and winter wildlife refuges where snowmobiles are not allowed.

Your cooperation with these simple guidelines helps preserve the pristine quality of this wild Wyoming wonderland.
