In order to preserve its pristine wilderness, motorised vehicles are not permitted in Glacier National Park. However, there are many snowmobiling adventures to be had in our area, all of which offer outstanding views, varying degrees of difficulty and a great ride!
The Canyon Creek trailhead takes you right to the summit at Whitefish Mountain Resort with views across the Flathead Valley and across Glacier National Park into Canada. This trail has it all – from alpine forests to deep powder bowls – and connects to a number of trails beyond Whitefish Mountain so you can tailor your trip to suit every need. Enjoy spectacular views of Glacier National Park whilst supping a hot toddy before heading back to your accommodation at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, or follow the trail on for a longer adventure. The choice is yours.
Don’t forget your discount! All guests of the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins enjoy 10% discount off snowmobiling trips when you book with Swan Mountain Snowmobiling.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Winter in Northwest Montana…time for cozy nights in around the fireplace, hot cocoa and watching the snow fall. Whilst Glacier National Park stays open year round, the lodging within the Park closes for the season. The big lodges located throughout the Park are not equipped to handle the cold temperatures. We say lucky us! Not only are we able to say we can provide insulated and heated units to provide lodging ALL year round, we also plow our facility for your convenience. This means that, whilst many snowbirds fly the nest for the season, we get to stay and play and share the beauty of Glacier National Park with all our guests!
Located only 8 miles from the West Entrance to Glacier National Park, we discount our rates through the Winter to provide you with affordable accommodation that will ensure you are cozy and comfortable. Come and join us in the Lodge and share your adventures … we’ll keep the home fires burning.

Swan Mountain Snowmobiling is pleased to offer guests of the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins a 10% discount on snowmobiling the Desert Mountain trail system. Located between the Hungry Horse Reservoir and the Great Bear Wilderness, near Glacier National Park, Desert Mountain contains over 25 miles of marked and groomed trails on the Flathead National Forest as well as some of the most incredible views in Glacier Country and is known as one of the most spectacular trails in Northwest Montana. The easy, groomed trail steadily climbs to the summit of Desert Mountain (6,368 feet in elevation) where guests look out over Glacier National Park, the Hungry Horse Reservoir and the Great Bear Wilderness.
Play hard on the sleds, then relax with a hot toddy in the main lodge or on the private deck of your cabin accommodation. We look forward to welcoming you to the area and introducing you to miles of trails and unsurpassed vistas of our winter wonderland!

Our guests love to tell us about the wildlife they see whilst visiting Glacier National Park. It is often a highlight of their stay and we LOVE to hear how you are enjoying our backyard! However, please be sensible. Caution is advised whilst exploring the area as these are wild animals and can behave unpredictably. Always pay attention to advice from Park Rangers and take good care out there!
Most animals will naturally avoid contact with humans – but some of our guests like to be prepared and choose to carry bear spray, especially when hiking in the more remote areas.
For our guests benefit, we follow an honor system with our bear spray. We have many canisters of bear spray at front desk available to our guests free of charge. This saves anywhere from $35.00 to $50.00 due to the fact that there is no need to purchase.
Don’t forget to pay it forward and let us have any remaining bear spray for the next guests to benefit.

Each has its own particular beauty and Winter is no different.

Rent one of our cabins through the winter and enjoy Glacier National Park’s spectacular scenery from a new perspective. Fall is beautiful in Glacier – the pace of life slows down giving you time to enjoy the colours changing and spend time hiking surrounded by glassy lakes and big skies. Winter brings the snow and chance to play on the nearby ski slope at Whitefish Mountain, snowmobile in the Flathead National Forest and explore the miles of local groomed trails by xc ski or snowshoe.
Our cabins are designed for your year-round comfort . We have various types of cabin available from studio accommodation in the unit cabins, or our new couples cabins, through to full size two bed homes. Our facility is located right on US Highway 2 which is plowed frequently through the winter months. We also ensure our own property is plowed and gritted for your convenience.
