Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling in the Methow offers everything from high elevation exploring, to riverside groomed tours, and the extensive terrain allows for all-day rides over exceptionally dramatic scenery.


Methow Valley summer Forest Service roads become a veritable playground for snowmobile terrain seekers in winter, with access up all of the major Valley sub-basins. Favorite kick-off points include trailheads at: Eight Mile, Chewuch Loop and Boulder Creek up the Chewuch basin, Yellowjacket and Goat Creek up the Methow mainstem toward Mazama, and Buttermilk and Libby Creek up the Twisp River Basin. The Methow Valley has access to about half of the county's 384 miles of groomed snowmobile trails!snowmobiling-side2.jpg

For the most part, the Methow Valley has consciously created geographic separation between the nordic ski trails and the snowmobile trails, which enhances everyone's experience. However, at a few trailheads (Cub Creek) there is shared use for the first few miles. Ride with caution, and respect the experience of the other trail users.

To find out where some of the best snowmobile riding in the valley is happening on day given day check out Methow Valley Snowmobile Association and the Omak Chronicle Snowmobile Guide.  Stop by the Methow Valley Ranger District office in Winthrop (509) 996-4000, to obtain sno-park permits and information.
