Our off-the-beaten-path Vacation Lodge offers a unique backcountry snowmobile vacation destination.
Winter at our Montana Winter Resort is an adventure! Located a few miles off an extensive groomed trail system - 500 miles around Island Park, Idaho and 400 miles around West Yellowstone, Montana - our guests enjoy thousands of acres of untouched powder.
Our ideal location sits in the middle of a unique winter wonderland. But, don't just take our word for it. SnoWest Magazine did a three-part 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 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
