Why are guided snowmobile tours with Selkirk Powder Guides so fun and unique? How about the fact that you’ll begin your snowmobiling tour at the top of a ski area? Yep, top of the ski hill—Idaho’s largest! Your adventure begins with us right after you check-in, when we’ll take you up a chairlift from the base of Schweitzer Mountain Resort and show you to our summit lodge where our carefully maintained fleet of Indy snowmobiles are located.

With your guide in the lead, you’ll drive your snowmobile on groomed and ungroomed trails from the top of the mountains down to the valley bottom, stopping at spectacular areas to take photos and learn about some of the rich natural history and lore of our very special area. After returning to our Summit Lodge and reviewing maps of where you’ve toured and perhaps some awesome photos, you’ll once again ride the ski lift back down to the village and take a last stop at our reception area.

"We went on the 5 hour tour and had a BLAST! After scheduled check in you’ll have time to grab coffee and breakfast next door to the booth, and then you’ll be taken to the lift to go up the mountain. The views during the ride are gorgeous and you’ll be able to take a few breaks for photos. Our guide, Sage, was awesome! We definitely went way faster than I thought we would. Lunch is simple: mini sandwiches, cocoa or cider, bottled water and candies. Definitely bring balaclavas or scarves to keep your face warm! Best surprise though?? HAND WARMERS built into the snowmobiled handles."

"Took a snowmobile trip on 2/18 with my husband and two small kids. We had the most amazing time! Our guide John was very knowledgeable, attentive, and accommodating to our small kids! He took time to let them get off the snowmobiled and play in the snow, without feeling rushed! He even stopped to let them see animal tracks! This tour was worth every penny!"

Gary R.

"Family of four shared two snowmobiles. Checkin to departure was all a great experience. Professional and easy to talk to staff. Loved the experience of going to little accessed areas to see awe inspiring scenery. Easy to learn to ride. Great location. Highly recommend. Dress warm! Helmet and goggles provided."

Dona & Tim W.

"Everything was absolutely perfect for a New Years Eve 2019 family day! Guide, John, made our trip so fun! Would definitely tap into Selkirk powder guides again in the future! This was our second experience with them and equally happy as last time."

Angie C.

"From speaking with Jarod and staff many days prior to arriving, the entire process was flawless! We made payments and were fully covered when we arrived. From check in to getting the lift tickets to a quick safety lesson before driving, everything was WELL organized! The views were breathtaking as this was our first family snowmobile experience. Our kids had a blast hanging with the instructor crew and making stops along the way to play in the snow. You MUST do this!"
