No Experience? No Problem!

No Experience? No Problem

It’s snowing again and NOAA is calling for a whole lot more of those winter flakes this week. Perfect weather for a guided Selkirk Powder Company snowmobile tour. That sounds really fun, you think, but I have never been on a snowmobile before; I wonder if I could do that? To that we say, “No experience? No problem!”

We book snowmobile tours for people with no or very limited experience all the time. Driving a snowmobile is a lot easier than you might think. Our friendly, skilled and experienced guides provide a thorough orientation to the equipment and the terrain. We offer short “Ridge Runner” and long “Middle Fork” tours to match everyone’s interest.

So now that you’re ready to book a tour, you might be wondering about winter clothing and gear. Don’t worry; we’ve got that covered too. We provide free use of helmets and goggles. Schweitzer’s Ski and Ride Center rents winter jackets, pants and snow boots right on the mountain.While there is a little bit more that you need to do to prepare for one of our winter tours, we promise, it’s really not that hard. We’ve put together some Snowmobiling FAQs that will answer all, if not most of your questions.

And don’t forget, Selkirk Powder Company offers guided cat-skiing, heli-skiing, backcountry skiing and cat sightseeing trips too. You can review the FAQs for our other tours and book most directly online at selkirkpowder.com. For more information, send us an email:[email protected] or give us a call: 208-263-6959
