Some call them snowmobiles and others call them snowmachines, but whatever the name, skimming across the snow is a favorite Alaska winter pastime.

Snowmobiling season in Southcentral Alaska typically lasts from November through early May, with a variety of accessible trails that surround Anchorage. Frozen lakes and wooded trails offer plenty of thrills and spectacular treks. Guided snowmobile tours are a fantastic way to escape into Alaska’s chilly wild and can accommodate every rider’s skill level.
