Discover Priest Lake, Idaho Snowmobiling

For some of the best Priest Lake, Idaho snowmobiling, stay at Elkins Resort. With access to hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, Elkins Resort on Priest Lake is truly a snowmobiler’s limitless paradise. Located minutes from two trailheads, the beautiful Selkirk Mountains can be accessed right from your cabin door. Trails weave their way up 7,000-foot snowy mountain peaks and through old-growth forests.

Snowmobilers will experience windswept ridges, snow-filled bowls, and breathtaking views from every vantage point. As the popularity of snowmobiling has increased, Priest Lake area businesses have employed two full-time groomers and maintained two warming huts with trails leading to all the local resorts, restaurants, and businesses.
