What a wonderful adventure we had today on our 1/2 day trip. Moose was at the office when we arrived and was very helpful with the heat we needed and the forms we needed to complete. They’re building a new office and it’s almost finished. The drive up to the trailhead was quick and easy. Once there, Cooper and Moose have us newbies a good orientation on the machines and what to expect on the trail. Jake, our guide, was incredible! He was very patient with all my picture taking wishes. He is very knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and accommodating. The trail was groomed, and although there were some rough spots (we did an afternoon trip) overall it was good. The scenery is almost beyond description. So much beauty and awe-inspiring views. We stopped at a survival cabin to warm up and potty. It started to snow pretty good as we headed back out, which made the ride more beautiful and exciting. This was one of the most wonderful things we’ve ever done. Thank you, Jake and Swan Mountain, for bringing so much joy to our 25th anniversary trip!!!!

I have been on many guided snowmobile trips into the county. The purpose was advertised beautiful scenery. and we did see some as we rode past. Normally a trip like this has several stop to take in the scenery(take picture's. Also at the half way point those that wanted to could play in the power. Sometimes refreshments are availability at the half way point. With this group stops were made only to bunch up the group. New riders were give little instruction. And inexperienced riders had no idea what to expect. Some riders only recieved help from other riders. The trails were advertised as groomed. While some were the rest were very veey bumpy. VEERY DISAPPOINTED

So, there were 15 of us that went on a 2-hour snowmobile trip today. It was a spectacular sunny day, something that doesn't happen much in Whitefish, but we were going to go exploring on the snowmobiles. I have done many snowmobile tours in many different areas, Steamboat Springs, Aspen Colorado, Winter Park Colorado, and this experience was by far the worst I have ever had. It started in a small garage on the side of the road, we filled out our waivers then had to drive another 6 miles to get to the drop off point. There were people that had never been on a sled before in our group and they were not shown really how to properly run the machine. The scenery was magnificent, and that's the reason for the 3 stars! Our guide told us that we were going to be on a groomed trail and would be stopping at several places to take pictures. The first stretch of the trip was great, nice groomed smooth trails. We then started on a Switchback which, in total both up and back was maybe four miles of nothing but washboard mogels! It was brutal and extremely uncomfortable. On past snowmobile Adventures we have stopped in an open area so you can play around on your sled, we stopped in beautiful picturesque spots to take beautiful pictures of the area that were in, the snowmobile leaders would take a group picture of all of us in front of the beautiful scenery. But, there was none of that! Everywhere we stopped there was no beautiful scenery, I had to stop on my own several times so I could take a picture, there was no open field to play in and have fun, there was no group picture taken by the snowmobile people! This really was a very dissatisfying trip and when I return back to the area I will not be taking a snowmobile adventure with this group again.

Hi 512andiem, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the spectacular Montana scenery, it's one of the many reasons our snowmobile tours typically garner five-star reviews. Snowmobile tours operate on Flathead National Forest Service land, and our in-town gear shop is conveniently located just seven miles from our most popular trailhead (in the heart of the forest). Many of our guests are thrilled to have a warm place to gear-up and fill out paperwork, which is evident in numerous raving reviews. The snow trail grooming schedule can include daily grooming on some of the most popular trails. Your group wanted magnificent views and our guides chose to take you down a trail that would offer the primo view experience. You are right, that trail had not been groomed yet that day and was bumpy from use. Though, the regular grooming schedule is typically consistent, it can be delayed by unforeseen circumstances. We apologize if that part of your ride was not as smooth as anticipated. Our two-hour tours typically stop to take photos, though with large groups it's imperative to keep the crowd moving at an efficient pace. A two-hour tour is a quick look at the terrain from a sled, and can turn into a four-hour tour if guests stop at-will to snap photos. Our guides provide recommended places to stop and take pictures, we apologize if it did not happen this time, or if the amount of stops seemed inadequate to you. It is our policy to ride on-trail only, no off-trail riding (particularly on two-hour and half-day tours). Past experience of allowing free-play off trail has led to novice guests getting their sleds stuck, guides spending too much time digging guests and sleds out of the snow, and the rest of the group standing-by instead of snowmobiling. You did mention most of your group were novice riders. We also strongly encourage our guests to stay on the trail due to the unique mountain and canyon locations of our trips, which are also avalanche areas in the right conditions. Off trail riding can, and has triggered avalanches. Our guides routinely take group photos for snowmobile guests; in fact, we have received several photos from happy guests this season. Guides were not asked by your group to take a photo. We encourage our guests to ask for photos if it is not offered, they are happy to do so. Snowmobile guides focus on safety first, customer service, and showing you Montana's magnificent views from a snowmobile. Many of our guests are novice to snowmobile operations. The safety speech, how to operate the machines, and things to expect, are all talked about in the briefing before each trip. We encourage our guests to pay attention during this talk to ensure the best quality trip. Our sleds are very simple to operate, with few instructions and details needed to have a great time. We are a unique tour company, and may operate differently from other tours in varying parts of the country. Our practice and policies are generated by years of experience in providing our guests with the highest quality service, and we take pride in being one of the safest, highest rated, and with the best guides in the country. For these reasons and more, we continue to provide the superior service that Swan Mountain Snowmobiling is known for. Happy Trails, Swan Mountain Snowmobiling

Want an adventure through a snowy wilderness, climb hills, descend into canyons and run along the edge or ravines, you come away with a great appreciation for Mother Nature over the course of 50 miles of snowmobile trails through Canyon creek bordering Glacier national park. Our guide Jacob was informative and pleasant, letting us set the pace of the journey

My 12 year old son said, snowmobiling is one of the greatest experiences ever! He said when you snowmobile with your family there is laughter and joy. Patrick was the best guide. He was patient, informative, and fun.
