With hundreds of thousands of square miles of backcountry to explore, you can be sure we’ll find the adventure of a lifetime on this snowmobile adventure! We’ll ride snow covered trails through boreal forests and across frozen lakes, through the valleys and into the hills of the Willow and Petersville areas of Southcentral Alaska. On clear days, we’ll have unparalleled views of the Alaska and Talkeetna mountain ranges, including Denali. Guests can choose to operate their own snowmobile (if you want to sound like an Alaskan, you can call it a snowmachine) or to ride along with another member of their party. Your guide will choose between several available specific locations to ensure each tour has access to the best riding conditions available. We’ll be driving between an hour and two hours north of Anchorage, riding for 3 to 4 hours, and will return you to your hotel after we’re finished. Total tour time with travel and riding will be between 7 and 9 hours, depending on drive time, snow conditions, weather and daylight. This sport has inherent dangers. You will be required to sign a liability waiver, and will be expected to follow the direction of your guide. Guests should be prepared for Alaskan weather, wearing boots, snow pants, coats, hats and gloves. We have a limited selection of gear to supplement your winter clothing, please contact us in advance if you’re not sure if your gear is sufficient.
Your guide will pick you and your group up at your hotel by 8am the day of your Matanuska Glacier tour.
Snowmobile Tour Notes:
- Especially in Spring, melting snow can cause wet conditions. Reasonably waterproof boots are recommended.
- Weather where we’ll be riding is often 5° to 15° colder than in Anchorage
- Dress in layers. When the weather turns out a little different than forecast, the sun comes out, or wind picks up, the ability to adjust to the conditions can make your time at the glacier much more enjoyable.
- Bring a small backpack or other means of carrying the few things you may want to keep available while we’re out; a hat, gloves, and water bottle for example.
- Snowmachining can be tailored to a suit people with a fairly wide variety of skill and fitness levels, however, it is not recommended for those with significant health concerns. Please check with us before booking if this applies to you.
- Feel free to give us a call or send a message if you have additional questions or concerns.
