Try Island Park, Cooke City, Fairview, all very close to the park and big snowmobile towns. From what I hear they have lots of great accomodations and places to rent sleds. I used to live in Eastern Washington, still have a few buddies there that could possibly find out info for you if you want!

10 grand huh? Damn that's up there, don't discount Eastern Washington, North Idaho, or NW Montana either....... There's a couple hundred miles of towns off I-90 that are snowmobile friendly and easily get 3 to 400 hundred inches of snow a year. Lots of great riding in that area too..

I don't know where you live at, but if you're coming from the east, check out Burgess Junction Wyoming. Just west of Sheridan. Awesome riding, lots of trails, unlimited back country stuff, less avalanches than alot of places. If you want lots of riding and less people, it's a great place. Kinda unknown, but several factory guys ride there.

I was wondering if anyone lives in or close to West Yellowstone? We have a trip planned for out there over christmas vacation. I was wondering if anyone knows if they have good snow yet? Its weird sitting at home in southern Minnesota when its 50 degrees and sunny and thinking about riding out west. gotta love it. :)

My uncles have been to West Yellowstone many times and they say there are a lot of trails and stuff out of the park too.

A great place to go is West Yellowstone. We go down there atleast twice a month. It is ok when you go in the park but you go out to lions head and off to Island Park and you will more than get your fill of mountain riding. When you do rent get a long track mountain sled it will make life alot easier. Remember this is new stuff for you even though it is still riding a sled. Plus the rates around West are great for the area and you don't have to haul from your motel just ride.

Thanks Scott

Yelloow stone isnt all that great. You have to stay on the trail follow the speed limit of i think 20 or 30. And pay a lot for a trail ride. The place to go is dubois,Wy. Up throgh union pass a scenic place with tons of medows to powder, good trails,and good hill climbs to. There are alot of resorts on the top of the mountain and one in town. One rsort belongs to a friend who also has a shop in the back.

We have probably been to yellowstone 40 times but only been in the park once. There is some great riding outside of the park. Go to lions head and go up the bottom of the creek, or go out towards the Big Sky trail system and there are some huge play areas and monster hills.

Thanks Scott.

It's a great area in general. Stay out of the park - it's slow riding and the trails get hammered! There's plenty of country for everyone there. Cruise over from west to Island Park or head north on the trails. You can ride all the way to Bozeman on the trail system! It's great and I'm sure you will enjoy it.
