TAKE YOUR PICK…SOMEWHERE IN WYOMING

By: CJ Ramstad

In the Southeast of this big, rambling state you’ll find the Snowy Range and some of the best snow for riding anywhere.

The wind blows across the central flats then rises up and dumps the big powder here to provide a deep snow playground that starts early and stays good into May and sometimes June.

Laramie is a picture of a western town that doesn’t put on airs but knows how to put on a spread. From Mexican to cowboy to Italian and everything in-between; there’s plenty to choose from any way you like it.

Just a few miles up the hill you can start in Centennial or swing over to Albany for a trailhead and begin a cruise through some absolutely spectacular country.

Few places even in the west can offer more in the way of sheer rock cliffs, deep rocky canyons or vast open high meadows. The whole thing is a well-groomed system all marked and mapped.

Up north you’ll find the big Horns rising up out of the central open range to offer Wyoming mountain riding with a telltale signature that is uniquely Big Horns.

The town of Sheridan is the stepping stone that covers 1, 115,073 acres laced with more than 300 miles of groomed trails and 50 miles of ungroomed routes leading deep into the heart of this spectacular range. Enter from the north at Burgess Junction or take off from Buffalo and Ten Sleep in the south.

Wyoming is so big you can find a variety of mountains to ride. That includes the Wind River Range in the southwestern part of the state – a range that spans over 100 miles north to south, making it the highest, widest and largest in the state with over 40 peaks towering above 13,000 ft. Gannett Peak is the tallest mountain in Wyoming at 13,804 feet.

There are over 250 miles of trails in the Wind Rivers and 2.25 million acres of the Bridger-Teton National Forest lie within the Wind River Range. Snowmobiling season typically runs from mid-December until April.

The Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail goes right by Cora and through Pinedale, where riders can find lodging, dining, repairs and fuel. Upper Green River is a popular riding area here with snow depths ranging from 5 -10 feet.

The adjacent Wyoming Range has more than 330 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and thousands of acres of off-trail riding areas.

Mentioned above with Yellowstone, the trails near Jackson, Wyoming, namely Togwotee, have attracted Midwesterners for decades to ride the rolling hills and view the magnificent Tetons.

Wyoming is a snowmobiler’s state and you’ll find the hardest part is choosing your exact destination.
