Snowmobile West Yellowstone
The West Yellowstone snowmobile trail system, outside of Yellowstone Park, will keep you busy with more than 400 miles of groomed trails in the Gallatin and Targhee National Forests. West Yellowstone has a great variety of trails from flat trails that have little elevation gain to trails that take you up to spectacular vistas-and a little of something everywhere in between.

THE YELLOWSTONE EXPERIENCE
What makes West Yellowstone so appealing is that regardless of whether you decide to just trail ride or explore the off trail possibilities - or both - it can be as mild or wild as you like. As you get more confident (daring?) you can choose the terrain that best challenges you. There's something for every kind of riding skill.
The elevation of the trial system ranges from 6,666 -10,000 with snowfall averaging 143 inches a year. The town is surrounded by mountains, some of which top out at more than 10,000 feet. it is not hard to pick out Lionhead (elevation 9,574 feet) Horse Butte (7,077) or Two Top Mountain (8,710) from the streets of town.
