Tour Details
Immerse yourself in Alaska in the winter on this once in a lifetime snowmobile ride to the Nelchina Glacier. Begin at Sheep Mountain Lodge and ride out and back from Nelchina Glacier, covering about 50 miles roundtrip. You will experience trail riding, riding on a river, and “playing” in the swamps if you so choose. Get up close to the glacier, play in the snow, enjoy the scenery, and take gorgeous pictures. There is always the chance to see wildlife including Moose, Bald Eagles, and Ptarmigan. After a snack at the glacier, we will head back to the Eureka or Long Rifle Lodge for a hot, delicious dinner before heading back toward Palmer.

There isn’t much you should need when coming on an adventure with us. We have all of the outer gear you need no matter the season. In the winter we have bibs *up to 3X, jacket *up to 3X, boots *up to size 13, helmet, balaclava, mittens, and goggles. The gear is included with the tour. Our number one recommendation would be to bring a phone or camera to take pictures with. We will have water and snacks for you on the ride and if you are doing the full day tour we will have lunch for you as well. If you are like me and tend to over pack or are extra prepared you are welcome to bring a small bag or backpack along with you. You can wear it or we can put it in a dry bag (provided) and strap it to your machine.

In the winter we provide a meal after the tour at one of the lodges after the full day tour. We provide snacks and hot cocoa at the glacier and then we provide an early dinner at either Eureka Lodge or Long Rifle Lodge up by the Matanuska Glacier which means you will choose what you eat.

F.A.Q.
  • How old do I have to be to drive a machine?You have to be 16 years old or older to drive a machine. You don’t have to have a driver’s license but you do need to show some form of ID if you are under 18 and driving a machine to confirm your age.
  • What should I wear?Layers layers layers. In the winter, the right clothing is the key to staying warm. Your base layer should be something synthetic (poly-pro) or wool and a pair of wool socks. Then a pair of “swishy pants” or joggers are good for your second layer on the bottom and fleece is a good second layer. We have outerwear for winter and, will most likely recommend that you wear our outer layers instead of your own. We know our gear will keep you warm but if you are partial to wearing the gear you have we can check it when you arrive to make sure it will keep you warm.
  • Can we rotate who is driving?We let those driving/riding in a side by side take turns driving but we like to keep ATV and Side by side drivers on the same machine all day. The learning curve is such that we like to keep you on the same machine you began with.
  • How many people will be on the tour with us?We like to keep the group to about 6 machines per guide. We like to keep the groups a little smaller to keep them more personal but if your group is larger than that we will keep you together in one big group with more than one guide based on your group size.
  • What's for lunch?In the winter we provide a meal after the tour at one of the lodges after the full day tour. We provide snacks and hot cocoa at the glacier and then we provide an early dinner at either Eureka Lodge or Long Rifle Lodge up by the Matanuska Glacier which means you will choose what you eat.
