The Missoula Snowgoers formed in the late 1970’s by snowmobile enthusiasts who recognized the need to have a unified voice for people who enjoy the sport of snowmobiling. The association exists to promote, protect, and represent snowmobiling in a positive, safe manner. We bring together people who have a common interest and enjoy fun and exciting snowmobiling activities.
The Missoula Snowgoers are responsible for grooming almost 500 miles of snowmobile trails, most notably the Lolo Pass trail system and Garnet Ghost Town trail system. Thousands of volunteer hours are invested into administrating and managing the groomer operations. The association maintains two grooming machines, employs five groomer operators, provides groomer safety training, and equips the groomers with satellite phones. The smooth, groomed trails allows riders of all levels to take a leisurely ride and provides the powder junkies a quick path to the steep and deep.
In the beginning of each season, members place trail maps at junctions throughout the trail systems. The maps are essential for knowing where you’ve been and figuring out where you’re going.
Financed and built entirely by volunteer members, the Warming Hut, about six miles south of the Lolo Pass Visitors Center, is a great place to stop and take a break. Members maintain the Warming Hut throughout the year.
The Missoula Snowgoers sponsors events throughout the riding season. Activities such as family fun rides, charity fund raisers, and pot luck dinners just to name a few. All of our events are family orientated and open to all snowmobilers.
Whether you’re new to snowmobiling or a veteran rider, we invite you to join our association. Future success of the sport depends on all snowmobilers participating in activities that protect and promote the sport. The most effective way to do this is to join our organization now.
