High-Octane Thrills

Snowmobiling through powder snow is like carving turns while skiing or snowboarding. You must keep your balance, maintain your speed, and lean into turns. Tour Guides ease novice riders into it—soon they feel confident. Valemount snowmobile terrain includes meadows and bowls at 2150 m (7000 ft) where snow can be 3 m (10 ft) deep. Fresh snow over a packed based is especially fun. —Jack Wennot
