Togwotee Mountain Lodge
snowmobile heaven (still adding to these pages..)

We're happy to have chosen Togwotee to get our snow fix, after 4 years without. When we arrived at the Jackson Hole airport, there was a base of 100 inches of snow!
We highly recommend this area for anyone wanting to snowmobile. Miles of endless trails, open meadows and hills to sled on.
You can snowmobile with a guide or unguided. Everything must be recorded in the snowmobile rental office (for obvious reasons). Checkout time, your destination for the day, and time of expected arrival. They take this very seriously...will charge you substantially if you're not back by 5:00 p.m. (dusk/sundown time) and will send out a search and rescue team if you're not back by 7:00 p.m.
Transportation to and from the town of Jackson is available. We paid $40 per trip, but this might not be the case of you stay all-inclusive, which we didn't do. (transportation to and from the airport is free)
They apparently have approx 4 drivers, but we ended up with the same driver for our entire visit. His name is Casey, and he's the dude.
As for Togwotee's service, we weren't impressed with it all. You have your choice of staying in a cabin or the lodge. We were in a cabin, maybe staying in the lodge itself would've been better? The cabin was great, included a fireplace in the living room, a decent sized bedroom with 2 queen beds and sufficient furniture for clothing....truly a picture perfect cabin. BUT...housekeeping is supposed to visit once a day, yet we were completely skipped 2 days and had to make multiple requests on other days. For example, they're supposed to make the beds as part of their job, but they only did this once. Everything we wanted...we had to ask for. We found out later they were understaffed at the time... but I don't see why, whether understaffed or not, we had to ask for the obvious when they finally did service us.
The snomobile rental place was also understaffed. So anytime we had to deal with them usually took some good time.
Unique Quality: "Togwotee" actually means (in the language of the Mountain Crow) "From here you can go anywhere". So true! a great location within proximity of Jackson Hole, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
Togwotee was FUN. (View their live webcam togwotee web cam) We snowmobiled for 3 days, went skiing in Jackson (Teton Village; Jackson Hole Mountain Resort) for a day, then went dogsledding (at Togwotee) for a day.
Snowmobiling was out of this world, as already mentioned. The skiing and dogsledding was also exactly what a person could hope for. (see our 'to do" tips for more info on skiing and dogsledding)
We were also super impressed with the staffs friendliness. Even though we had to ask for things that should've been taken care of without asking, each and every person was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Ask for Eddie or Noah. We didn't actually meet Noah, but he was very helpful over the phone. Eddie was all around helpful and very sweet. A+ in that area.
All in all, we came to the conclusion the Togwotee is great for the average snowmobiler not looking for much more than FABULOUS, endless snow with groomed trails that spider through the mountains or powdered hills to climb..anything you want, be a beginner or advanced sledder.
Directions: between Moran and Dubois -approx 45 minutes from Jackson
