What a thrill to have the Winter Games in our own backyard. We also have some of the nationís best winter recreation. And Park Cityís High Country Snowmobiling is one company that knows just how to make the most of it.
Nestled in the pines and aspens on Highway 224, just below the famous Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley, High Country Snowmobiling has become Utahís premier snowmobiling location. Thatís because the company prides itself in taking a page from its neighbor Deer Valley Ski Resort and providing only the bestóthe best in equipment (with over 100 new Polaris machines), expert tour guides (trained in CPR and avalanche safety), excellent food and all the necessary clothing.
It all began six years ago. Business partners Wynn Passey and Ron Cloward wanted an opportunity to work in the outdoors they both loved so much. And they knew that if done well, their business would flourish.
And flourish it has. With double-digit growth each year, it is by far the largest snowmobiling company in the state, hosting more than 25,000 guests per year. And itís perhaps the easiest company to reachóbeing just five minutes from Park City and 30 minutes from Salt Lake.
The company offers everything from one-hour trips to full-day adventures. All trips include a masterful blend of trail riding, sightseeing and time cruising and playing in huge alpine meadows. Trips of three hours or more include a delicious lunch in a spectacular setting. In the evening, guests can choose a snowmobile trip that includes a stop for dinner at a four-star Deer Valley restaurant.
And High Country literally lives up to its name. With its location at 8,000 feet, the company shows guests to Utahís highest and largest riding areas for the best snow and of course unbeatable views. Plus, High Country enjoys the longest season, beginning in November and continuing through mid-April. Where itís only February now, and with same-day reservations available, thereís still plenty of time to book. With all High Country Snowmobiling has to offer, they are uniquely qualified to show you or the World the best of Utahís winter recreation.
