Snow Sports – Snowmobiling
The Bighorn National Forest offers 387 miles of snowmobile trails. Wyoming law requires that all snowmobiles have either a resident or nonresident user fee decal adhered to the machine. The snowmobile season is December 1 thru April 15. Our snowmobile trail system is maintained through cooperative efforts of the Wyoming Dept of State Parks, the Bighorn National Forest and local snowmobile clubs.
Wyoming has over 2000 miles of groomed and ungroomed trails. The majority of the these trails are signed. Within our system we have a great diversity of trail riding and scenic qualities. There are numerous meadows with powder riding throughout the system. Snowmobile trail grooming season is generally mid- December through April 1, pending adequate snowfall and available funding.
