What you'll do

We will pick you up from Cooke City, MT in the morning where you will hop on a snowmobile as a passenger and we'll travel 3 miles outside of town and up the mountain to our luxurious lodge that we call 'The Roost'. The views of the mountain ranges from the Roost are outrageous and will be nothing like anything you have seen before. We will have breakfast and get a briefing on the days activities and cover avalanche education, rescue techniques, and passenger snowmobile riding tips and techniques. We will get an idea from you on what type of terrain you want to ski or snowboard - open bowls, trees, chutes ? We'll find the right lines based on your skill level, type of skiing/riding you want to do and the days snow stability report from one of our expert backcountry safety guides. From there we head up on a snowmobile to strategic locations that will put you on top of the most amazing untracked powder runs customized for you! It gets deep so bring your fat skis and pow board. If you are trying to maximize your skiing, we'll pack a lunch so you can get all the powder skiing in, else we can do a BBQ lunch at the Roost. After a day of skiing we will take you back to Cooke City or take you to a spot and guide you on a ski run that takes you right back to town! Check out our video at www.roostops.com to get an idea of the experience. Let us know if you want specific dates!
