Frequently Asked Questions

  • Chevron down Why choose Backcountry Snowmobiling?
  • Well, we could tell you we are the best, just like all the other companies try to. But instead of listening to us talk about how we have the best guides, nicest snowmobiles, gorgeous views, great value, etc., listen to our satisfied customers instead. Check Trip Advisor, Yelp, or Facebook and you’ll see that we are consistently given the highest ratings of any snowmobile tour in Utah!

  • Chevron down How old do you need to be to drive a snowmobile?
