Ready to snowmobile in Whitefish, Montana? Looking for speed and adventure, but don't have the entire day to spend out on an excursion? This is THE TOUR for you. With the Classic 1/2 Day Whitefish Snowmobile you will get high-quality Polaris 850 mountain sled to rip through the mountains of Montana.

This is NOT a typical groomer sled, but better for those seeking more power and the ability to ride powder too.

In this snowmobile tour, you'll leave from the shop and can climb the trails to catch fantastic views of the Swan Range, the Whitefish Range and maybe even see the towering peaks of Glacier National Park on a clear day. Spark your adrenaline as you fly over the snow going fast as your heart desires. Don't forget to slowdown once in a while to enjoy the serenity of the snow-covered trees that surround you.

If you are an experienced snowmobiler, there is plenty of great terrain for you to devour as you float through the powder. If you have never ridden a snowmobile then these groomed trails of Northwestern Montana provide a perfect training ground for you to build your skills and comfort.

The Sleds

This tour includes Polaris RMK Pro or Khaos mountain sled. This is a more powerful and longer track sled than you'll get at most rental companies around. It is designed for those that want to be able to ride off-groomed as well as groomed trails.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have to stay on groomed tracks or can we go off trail?
There is tons of great groomed trails, but for those that are adventurous there are fun powder fields you can explore as well. For those that want to spend most of the day off-groom you should check out the Polaris Switchback or RMK sleds available.
What should I wear for snowmobiling
You need a warm, waterproof jacket, warm waterproof pants (snowpants) and warm waterproof gloves. Not mittens, and no cotton exterior. You’ll want to wear a Balaclava or neck gator/buff but scarves are not allowed, close-ended neck warmers only.Most importantly - wear warm, thickly insulated and waterproof – boots that go well over the ankle. Not ‘duckboots’ not shoes, not hiking boots. Failure to wear the right footwear actually will result in same day cancellation and billed in full. We cannot stress enough the safety factor of wearing the right boots. We do not carry boots, there is no way to rent them to you. Please contact Glacier Tourbase directly for locations to secure boot rentals. Lastly, wear layers. We encourage three. Thermal underlayer, then sweater and pants, then jacket and snowpants make up the final layer.
