At Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals we specialize in Self-Guided Snowmobile Rentals. We provide all of the equipment, maps and directions as well as local knowledge required to send you on your own snowmobile adventure. Out of our Jackson location you will tow a trailer loaded with your equipment to one of our many trail-head options including the popular Granite Hot Springs or the extensive trail network inside of the Bridger Teton National Forest. We can provide a complete package including a tow vehicle if you do not have a vehicle capable of towing.  If you would prefer not to trailer the snowmobiles to a trail-head out of Jackson we offer our Alpine location with direct ride on access to the Grey’s River Trail system. Our Self Guided tours are great for every skill level including beginner up to expert, so you can ride at your own pace. At Jackson Hole Adventure rentals we provide an affordable alternative to expensive guided tours.

Guided tours typically include multiple groups of guests headed to a preset destination at the guide’s pace.

Drivers need to be 16 or up to drive our Crossover/Performance/Touring snowmobiles.  These snowmobiles are very powerful, and we strongly suggest inexperienced younger drivers start out as a passenger.

Drivers need to be 21 or up to drive our High Performance snowmobiles.

Passengers should be 6 and up.

Drivers and passengers under 18 must have a parent/guardian release form signed.

Out of our Jackson location you are required to tow the snow machines to a trail-head.  If you do not have a vehicle that can tow we can provide one for you for $90+tax per day. Our tow vehicles are available for 8:00 am to 5:00 pm rentals only. If you plan on a multiple day rental we offer Large SUVs for towing.

You must be 21 or older in order to rent a tow vehicle. We offer an optional $24 per day $1,000.00 deductible damage waiver on the tow vehicle.

Tow vehicles will leave full of fuel and will need to be returned fully fueled. Our tow vehicles are a crew cab truck.

Our Tow vehicles can tow between 1 snowmobile and 6 snowmobiles (larger trailers require previous towing experience).

We offer optional damage waivers on all of our equipment, which can be purchased for $25 for Touring, Performance or Crossover snowmobiles or $35 for High Performance Snowmobiles.  This limits your liability to $1,000 in parts and labor and limits loss of use to no more than 5 days.  Recovery charges do apply if staff is required to retrieve the machine during your rental.  We strongly suggest purchasing this coverage, as most people do not have any other kind of coverage for this type of equipment.

The National Forest provides the most access  with the least amount of restrictions for self-guided snow machine rentals. For our rentals out of Jackson and Alpine our trail-heads are located inside of the Bridger-Teton National Forest system. At both locations we provide detailed maps and directions based on your preferred riding area.

The National Park system offers limited self guiding options and includes Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National park. To operate in these parks you need to have a BAT (Best approved technology) snow machine as well as a proper permit issued by the National Park service. These permits are done based on a lottery system typically in the October/ November time period.  If you do not have a permit and wish to visit Yellowstone you will need to take a Guided Tour. We do not offer guided tours.

Follow this link to apply for your self guided Yellowstone lottery permit: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/ncgsap.htm  Lottery applications are accepted August 1 to 31

Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals offers two locations to better serve our guests.

Our Jackson Hole location offers great access to both the Granite Hot Springs trail system and the extensive trail network at Togwotee. Out of our Jackson location you are required to tow the snowmobiles to the trail systems.  We recommend customers be comfortable towing equipment on snow covered roads if renting out of this location. The Granite Hot Springs trail system is located 22 miles South of our shop. Togwotee is located 50 miles North of our shop. We offer only full day rentals out of our Jackson location.

Our shop in Alpine Wyoming is located a mile away from the Grey’s River Trail system inside the Bridger Teton National Forest.  You can ride directly out of our shop onto the trail system. We offer both 1/2 and full day options out of this location. This is a great option for those that would prefer not to trailer, load, or unload the the snowmobiles. Alpine is located 35 miles south of Jackson with a beautiful drive through the Snake River Canyon.

Both locations offer a wide variety of skill level ridding. From beginner to experienced mountain riding, our customer service agents can point you in the right direction.

We rented a snowmobile for the day and took it up to Granite Hot Springs. We had an amazing day on the trail, but it all started with the incredibly friendly and helpful staff at Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals. We were so impressed with their machines and service that we came back the very next day and rented an SUV. If you want to be on your own time (without a guide), we would highly suggest renting from Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals.

Absolutely FANTASTIC experience with Jackson Hole Adventure Rentals! Myself, my wife and a local friend rented 3 snowmobiles and a tow vehicle for 3 days of riding in Togwotee Pass over Super Bowl weekend 2018. It was an amazing experience. JHAR rented us new 2018 high performance sleds…not that junk you sometimes see at other rental places…and the prices were very reasonable. Along with the machines, the riding gear was new as well…again much higher quality than we were expecting from our previous rental experience in Colorado. This place is high efficiency as well…we walked in, did all our paperwork, got our gear and drove off on our pre-loaded truck/trailer setup in ~35 minutes. This was while a group of about a dozen dudes showed up without reservations for a day rental and messed up the flow. again, I’m super pleased with the OVERALL experience, attention to detail, quality of equipment and cost. I’d highly recommend JHAR for your snowmobiling vacation in the Jackson Hole area…extremely impressed. Highly recommend renting here and trailering to Togwotee…the riding there is EPIC! We’ll be back next year for sure!

Greys River Alpine

Alpine Wyoming Trail System

This adventurous mountain community located 35 miles south of Jackson serves as a trailhead to the Greys River trail system. The Greys is ranked as one of the top 5 snowmobile trails by SnoWest Magazine, bringing in snowmobile riders from all over the world to experience its beauty. You can spend a day or several enjoying nearly 200 miles of groomed trails that wind through some of Wyoming’s most breathtaking scenery. Head up to Blind Bull Summit to enjoy the world class powder and on a clear day, absolutely stunning views.  Stop by the Box Y Lodge for lunch, or bring a picnic for more flexibility. Snowmobiles can be picked up in Alpine and ridden directly to the trailhead, eliminating any need to trailer the snowmobiles to your destination.

Box Y will begin lunch service 12/19/20 – and will have to adhere to potentially changing COVID regulations.

1. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I’m afraid of heights, so they told me which trails to take with my buddies so that I don’t have a panic attack. The trails we took were in the valley, between mountains, with the best “winter” views I’ve ever seen: large snow capped mountains blanketed in pine trees, sunlight glistening off the river. I felt as if I was having my own “Forest Gump” adventure.

2. The snowmobile trails are groomed but there is more than enough open space and powder next to the mapped out trails.

3. They give you all the snowmobile equipment (helmet, goggles, boots, pants, coats, backpack, gloves). Really comfortable and made me feel like a pro.

4. The main trail leads you to Box Y Lodge, a small cabin resort which is only accessible by snowmobile in the winter. We got some hearty food, petted horses!!!, and enjoyed the sights. It was the first time ever that I experienced “living”, albeit for an hour, in the country.

5. We took a snowmobiling rental in Whistler, BC, in which we followed a guide, could not go fast, uninteresting scenery. But, here, we could do whatever we wanted, could go as fast as we want, and had hours of “wow” scenery, all for less price than what we paid for in Whistler. I was not expecting it, but I felt that, after going here, I could cross something off my bucket list.

6. I’m not usually compelled to write a review on Trip Advisor. But this is one of those places which people have to know about.
