Most mountain areas of Utah are open to snowmobiling from dozens of popular trailheads. Terrain ranges from steep hill climbing to trail riding or just playing in a powdery meadow. Those with the proper equipment and avalanche skills can access steep hill climbing terrain and steep, treed boondocking. Those without avalanche skills or equipment can have a blast in gentler beginner-friendly terrain. 
Nine unique trail complexes are located across the state with interlinking trail systems. There are even snowmobiling trails in the red rock canyons of Southern Utah.

How to Register Your Ride

Snowmobiles must be registered in Utah — even if you’re visiting from out of state. For a non-resident permit, you'll need your out-of-state driver’s license and snowmobile title or bill of sale. Registration costs $22 for Utahns or $30 for non-residents. Permits must be purchased online through the Utah Division of Outdoor Recreation

About Utah's Backcountry

If you plan to ride in avalanche terrain, you will need standard avalanche rescue gear, avalanche training and remember to regularly consult the Utah Avalanche Center website for critical avalanche safety information and the latest conditions before venturing out (Read: 4 Tips to Prepare for Utah's Winter Backcountry).

And always remember these tips:

  • Get the Equipment: Everyone should have a transceiver, shovel and probe on their person and know how to use them.
  • Get the Training: Take an avalanche course to learn obvious clues to danger and how to read the terrain.
