Heading for the Back CountryOur Off-The-Beaten-Path Vacation Lodge near Yellowstone Park offers a unique backcountry snowmobile vacation destination. Winter at our Montana Winter Resort is an adventure!

There is no doubt our off-the-beaten-path location sits in the middle of a unique winter wonderland. But, don't just take our word for it. In the fall of 2006, SnoWest Magazine did a three-part 'in-depth' article on the Island Park area. Elk Lake Resort - and the countryside out our back door - was deemed worthy of mention in two of the three articles. The second article talks about Elk Lake Resort while later articles talk about the surrounding countryside.

"The pass-through rolling hills en route to Elk Lake.. .[is] open country for the most part - where you can go in every direction. You can find trees on the north facing slopes. You can find wide open sidehills on the south facing slopes. . .Elk Lake Resort is close by and represents food, shelter and gas if needed. (Not to mention to the northwest of Elk Lake you get into the Gravelly Range which is in itself another outstanding snowmobiling area.). . ." SnoWest- 2006
