Snowmobile Clubs

Upper Yellowstone Snowmobile Club


Located at the northeast gateway to Yellowstone National Park, the Cooke City area and the Gallatin National Forest offers some of the finest backcountry snowmobiling in the country. The surrounding Beartooth Mountains provide snowmobiling opportunities for everyone from the novice to the expert. Cooke City is accessible by automobile if you travel to Gardiner, Montana and through the north portion of Yellowstone Park. Visitors traveling from the east via Cody, Wyoming can drive up the Chief Joseph Highway to the Pilot Creek Parking Area. From the parking area, visitors must unload their sleds and ride approximately 12 miles to Cooke City. Regardless of whether you’re a novice rider or an expert rider, you’ll find Cooke City to be one of the most outstanding snowmobile experiences available anywhere.
