Snowmobile Trip - Recommended

I just returned from an awesome three day sledding adventure just North of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, at a resort called Togwotee Mountain Lodge, near Bridger-Teton Forest and Grand Teton National Park. Known as the World's Premier Snowmobile Resort With 600 miles of snowmobile trails. It was my first time and all I can say is, WOW!! Beautiful country, great deep powder, and high adrenaline. I had no idea what to expect but this is not like any snow I have ever seen (Ohio guy). 57" to 65" average base depth at 8,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level. Digging out was crazy!!!

Its a recommended boys trip from Double D. They do have doubles sleds for trail riding if your wife wants to go, and I did see a few ladies riding their own sled, but its mainly a meat fest up there.

Here are a few pics. I have 60 gig of GoPro video to go through...

Ball park for 3 solid days of sledding:

4 night stay at lodge with shared room, all three meals and happy hour drinks for two hours included around $1,300 (two people) Not sure how a single works.

3 day rental sled with guide, plus if your renting the coat, pants, boots, gloves and avalanche beacon (assuming you have the helmet/goggles) around $650

Includes 10% off all purchases at lodge stores.

Then airfare......

You also have the option for a cabin. If you stay in the lodge, make sure your not over the bar or ask for a back room. LOL!!

I was a guest so I never checked into other options or how the price compared...

Togwotee is great. Those Polaris RMKs make you feel like a pro. So easy to ride even for novice riders.

I mentioned the new toy idea to the wife.. Needless to say she was less than thrilled. Like NO!

I also mentioned they have sleds where she can ride along and we could go together. Once again, a big "No, Over my dead body!! Give me a beach!!"
