Mother Nature created a picture perfect marriage of early winter snow, spectacular scenery and many bright sunny days in the Priest Lake Basin. This natural winter paradise, coupled with the area's love of snowmobiles, has produced a groomed trail system in excess of 400-miles and a local business orientation that caters to snowmobile enthusiasts.

The groomed trail system encircles both Priest Lake and Upper Priest Lake and affords easy access to spectacular powder pushing play areas. Snowmobile trails are mostly on either state or federal forest service roads ranging in elevation from 2,500 to over 7,000-feet. See what you could be experiencing!

- The trails traverse through heavy timber, windswept ridges and snow-filled bowls above the tree line.

- There is no need to trailer your sled to a trailhead either. The trail system can be easily accessed from the doorstep of most of the area's resorts and lodging establishments.

- Snowmobile trail maps are available online by clicking here, or at most businesses in the area.

- Snowmobile rentals are readily available through the recreation equipment rental outlets below and arrangements can be made to deliver your rental sled to your resort.

Do you thrill at the thought of awe inspiring panoramic views, the beauty of nature's snow castles, and the winter wonderland of deep forests with trees heavily laden with great heaping mounds of snow? If any of this stirs the cockles of your heart, and it's sometime between November and April, you probably need to be loading the sleds and heading for Priest Lake.
