Snowmobiling season typically runs from early December through mid April. The lakes generally are frozen by Christmas. January through mid April is generally considered to be the best time. Temperatures at this time of year usually range from lows near zero to daytime highs in the mid twenties. Most days are sunny. The terrain is quite variable, ranging from flat to gently rolling sagebrush prairie to very rugged forested mountains. The elevation is about 7000 feet, but many trails are over 10,000 feet.
