Went to Togwotee Jan 23-27 we rode Jan 24,25,26. First time out there and it was fantastic. The one thing that I wasn't prepared for was the elevation took a good day and a half to get used to it. First day we had just a few more than what felt like 1000 stucks, and I will have to say it was without question the most exhausting day of my life. I learned alot, at least to me, about getting a sled unstuck that day. In my opinion you have never truly ridden a sled until you have ridden one out there. Our last day we rode with zrt001. We had lefty for a guide and what an amazing rider and a fantastic guide. The weather while we were there was absolutely perfect. Had two days of perfect blue skies and just a few clouds the other. They had a couple feet of fresh a few days before we got there so the conditions were awesome. As far as the lodge goes, I would highly recommend staying here. They call it the Mecca for snowmobiling and it truly is. Everything is centered around snowmobiling. We stayed in a cabin and thought it was great. I can't wait to go back. By the way, the hill in the background on the webcam is way bigger than it looks.

The third pic shows lefty being dragged down the hill by a sled after ditching his own to help get the rider unstuck.

We took the advice of many and drank a ton of water. Drink it until you think you can't drink anymore. It does help.

Weird to see the desolate parking lot now. They are closed now for the season, right? Still looks like a ton of snow up there!

I just drove by there on Saturday and it sure didn't look like they were closed. The parking lot was crammed full of trucks, trailers, and sleds. The condistions were unreal. We were at Jackson Hole to do some skiing and the area got 22" last Tuesday and another 10" Friday and it was snowing when we left on Saturday.

Lodge closed on the 28th today. You can still ride up there and the gas pumps take a credit card. Just not enough business this time of year. We went up to Togwotee from the March 13-17. Not many people up there no wait for meals at all. rarely anyone in the hottubs. Next year is looking good again.....

The problem is, come April 1st people put the sleds away and start cleaning the boat. There's just not enough of us die hards that realize the season is only 2 thirds over, out west. Not enough business to warrant keeping the place open. I think with the amount of Midwesterners wanting to ride in the west, that may change over the next few years. Once the "bread basket" of snowmobiling begins to realize that they can ride 6 months plus out of the year if they choose, it will change.

I agree, I am on Michigan winter time mindset also. Working on changing that. Bike and boat are out. sled is sold, snowchecked new sled, now wait till next winter.
