Please arrive prepared for wintry adventure with the following personal items – you can use it as a checklist.


With your guide in the lead, you’ll drive your snowmobile on groomed and ungroomed trails, stopping at spectacular areas to take photos and enjoying snacks and beverages while also learning about some of the rich natural history and lore of our very special area.

Snowmobile road through snowghosts

Our domain is 188,000 acres in Priest Lake State Forest. We ride hundreds of miles of groomed trails and logging roads that skirt along summit ridges with amazing views or drop into thick and unspoiled forest. Wildlife is abundant, and it’s not uncommon to spot moose, bunnies, and other critters during our tours.

Our trails aren’t up high like they might be in Colorado or Utah: our elevations range from 2,600 – 6,650 ft, so catching your breath is easy.

Sunset on snowghosts

Outfitters who are part of this exclusive network of local adventure experts are accepted into the Polaris Adventures program based on experience, adherence to best practices, high scores in customer satisfaction as well as a commitment to safety and ethics. We ride two-stroke Polaris Indy snowmobiles specifically built for touring; they are powerful, comfortable, and easy to operate. All models can accommodate a passenger and feature key switch ignition, tall windshields with mirrors, and heated hand grips. They’re well-maintained and ready for the trails. Experienced riders will recognize the quality, and first-time riders find they’re easy to learn on and very comfortable to ride.

Posing with Polaris snowmobiles

All drivers of snow vehicles must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. All passengers must be able to grasp handhold with their hands and plant feet firmly on the ground. Helmets and eye protection must be worn when the vehicle is in operation.

    For the Winter “Time of Your Life”…

    Wow! What an AMAZING experience we had last Sunday (01.15.23) snowmobiling on Schweitzer Mountain! Our guide, Sage, was professional, flexible, knowledgeable and down right FUN! The machines were beautiful, new and so easy to operate. Our afternoon two hour trip took us by stunning vistas, with a terrific mountain valley photo shoot stop. All the Selkirk Powder Staff were so helpful, friendly, and pleasantly professional. We can’t wait to come back! My 74 year old husband was riding for the FIRST TIME…and now he’s HOOKED!
