Outstanding rides and great discounts on Flathead Valley snowmobiling

There are approximately 200 miles of groomed trails and nearly 2000 miles of National Forest Service roads to take you through our snowmobiling winter wonderland! Enjoy pristine alpine forests, breathtaking ridges and powder-filled bowls.

Take your snowmobile direct from the lodge or trailer up to one of the many local trailheads or lakes.  Regardless of the type of riding you’re looking for, the Flathead Valley has the right place for your pleasure.  From relaxed trail rides to extreme riding this area is surrounded with opportunities for adventure (see Flathead Snowmobile Association for more details of facilities in our area).

The Historic Tamarack Lodge  works closely with Swan Mountain Snowmobiling (406) 387 4203 to offer our guests discounted snowmobile rental and guided/unguided tours.

For some outstanding snowmobile experiences check out te following tried and tested routes:

 

Canyon Creek Snowmobiling

Located on the North Fork of the Flathead River Drainage, the Canyon Creek trail accesses more than 80 miles of groomed trail and abundant mountain riding. The trailhead starts five miles north of Columbia Falls on F.S. road 316. The trail leads to Whitefish Mountain Resort on Big Mountain where you can take a break at the Summit House. Another option is to continue past Big Mountain to Upper Whitefish Lake or go to Kimmerly Basin, a great place for some snow play along the route.

Desert Mountain Snowmobiling
Known as one of the most spectacular trails in Northwest Montana (and the closest to our Glacier National Park Cabin Rentals!), the Desert Mountain trail allows access to the summit of Desert Mountain overlooking Glacier National Park, Hungry Horse Reservoir and the Great Bear Wilderness. From this trailhead you may also ride an ungroomed trail along the east shore of Hungry Horse Reservoir, great for wilderness scenery and hill climbing. About 35 miles.

Olney/Red Meadow Snowmobiling
Close to Whitefish and just off Hwy. 93, the Olney trail travels through open-field play terrain. The groomed trail connects to Upper Whitefish Lake trail and Stryker trail. This is one of the largest loops you can take in one day. The route winds up from Olney over Werner Peak at 7100 ft. This trail will also lead you to Whitefish Mountain Resort and down to the Canyon Creek trailhead in Columbia Falls.

Upper Whitefish Lake Snowmobiling
This trail connects to the trails from Olney and Mount Marston. This is a 50 mile tour through the deep woods of the Whitefish Mountain Range. Upper Whitefish Lake offers groomed trails as well as unlimited mountain climbing and play in open meadows. It takes about 1 hour to get to Upper Whitefish Lake from the Upper Whitefish Lake trailhead or take the groomed trail to the East and head up to Werner Park.

Crane Mountain Snowmobiling
Just outside Bigfork, you’ll find 38 miles of groomed trail riding and unlimited play terrain in mountain meadows and old logging clear cuts. These trails offer views of Flathead Lake, the Swan Mountains and the Mission Mountains. More than 100 miles of ungroomed logging roads. Reach the Crane Mountain trail system from Hwy. 209, six miles south of Bigfork, or from Hwy. 83, two miles south of Swan Lake.
