Snowmobiling in Whitefish Montana

First, let me say the outfitters here have all the gear and equipment to keep you warm. So, you can take that off your list of excuses and you’ll find some snowmobiles have heated handlebars, foot warmers with heated seats. Everyone is different. But, some outfitters have the snowmobile suits and helmets for you. And yes, they are very warm. However, not all provide suits and boots so, please ask what gear they supply when you are making your reservation.  We don’t want you to get caught off-guard. 

Second, snowmobiles are easy to drive and steer. You control the speed, and once you drive the first 15 seconds you’ll see how easy they are. After 30 seconds, you’ll really get into how much fun they are. 

Third, you’ll love the scenery! And, if you’re lucky, you’ll see some great wildlife while you’re out. The Montana wilderness awaits your adventure and snow-filled journey.
