Montana Snowmobiling at its Finest
Winter rides into the Seeley Swan Valley on a blanket of snow. The area often gets 100” of snowfall right in the valley floor. But that doesn’t mean we huddle indoors.
The surrounding area offers over 300 miles of groomed montana snowmobiling trails. From flat rides through silent pine forests to steep hill climbs, the Seeley Swan Valley has enough snowmobile rides for a lifetime of thrills and discovery. The valley is extremely snowmobile friendly, and has become a popular destination for groups and families who like to ride the snow together. Snowmobiling in Montana is spectacular!
The historic Main Lodge is one of the most comfortable snowmobiling lodges in Montana and houses our renowned Seasons Restaurant. After a day of enjoying Montana Snowmobiling , relax by the massive stone fireplace with a drink from our full service Stirrups Lounge. Savor an entrée from our casual fine dining menus from Seasons Restaurant, among the finest in snowmobile lodges.

“We made quite a discovery here at the Double Arrow. Peace and solitude combined with delicious food and friendly people. Beautiful scenery using the horse trails provided us with wonderful photographic opportunities of the mountains. Some of the photographs will surely end up framed and displayed in our home.”
