A full day tour up to Paradise Basin at 8,000 feet with fresh mountain air, a former silver mine, a powder snow bowl, a magical frozen waterfall and breathtaking views of the Canadian Rockies and the Purcell Mountains.  

Ride your way through the forest and up to Paradise Basin at 8,000 feet and visit the remnants of an early 1900’s silver mining town. The open powder bowl above the treeline offers a fantastic chance to play in the deep snow.

Each guest will operate their own newer model snowmobile as they follow the mountain trails through the forest stopping for a delicious mountainside BBQ lunch. Your hearty lunch inside the cozy log cabin will give you the energy for more sledding action and the return to the mountain base!

The journey will take you on winding trails along the edge of an alpine valley with a variety of breathtaking panoramic views.
