Here in northern Utah, the locals and visitors have access to some of the most exciting terrain and beautiful snow on earth. One way to experience the sweeping bowls of powder and untouched mountain meadows in the winter months is to go snowmobiling. If you want to reach miles beyond other adventurers, a snowmobile might be the best option for you. This is, without a doubt, one of the most thrilling ways to enjoy Park City.
Thousand Peaks Snowmobiling, located in Oakley about 20 minutes away from Old Main Street in Park City, is one of the premier snowmobile adventure companies in the region. Thousand Peaks is located on a 60,000-acre private ranch where only their patrons are allowed to ride in the region. This means hours of enjoyment without seeing another person, and increases the chances of seeing wildlife in the backcountry.
Thousand Peaks also offers top-of-the-line Ski-doos that run in peak performance so you never have to worry about breaking down miles away from basecamp. You’ll need the best equipment if you’re going to reach the highest elevations any company in the range offers—from 9,000 to 11,000 feet.
Located in Coalville, up a private, rural canyon just a few miles outside of Park City, Backcountry Snowmobiling’s basecamp sits at 7,500 feet elevation, higher than any other company’s basecamp in a canyon poised for perfect backcountry touring. Because of the company’s unique location, riders can tour through three different states, Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah, with inspiring views of the rugged Rocky Mountains for a genuine backcountry experience.
Riders can choose between two- or three-hour tours, and for larger groups or corporate events Backcountry Snowmobiling offers group and corporate rates. If you’re fresh in from warmer climates and not yet prepared for the cold, Backcountry had snowsuits, gloves, boots, and helmets for all sizes and ages. For an intimate ride into Utah’s hidden canyons, book a ride with your crew today.
