Most mountain areas of Utah are open to snowmobiling from dozens of popular trailheads. Terrain ranges from steep hill climbing to trail riding or just playing in a powdery meadow. Those with the proper equipment and avalanche skills can access steep hill climbing terrain and steep, treed boondocking. Those without avalanche skills or equipment can have a blast in gentler beginner-friendly terrain. 
Nine unique trail complexes are located across the state with interlinking trail systems. There's even snowmobiling trails in the red rock canyons of Southern Utah.
