Winter Activities In Leavenworth, WA : Snowmobiling

North Central Washington is the most startling and diverse region of our state, and Leavenworth is an ultimate adventure travel destination year round. No matter what season is outside, you can always find tons of exciting and adventures things to do in this beautiful town.

Winter in Leavenworth is the perfect place to capture the magic of the Christmas season !

Couple some of the best snow and terrain in the country with a charming Bavarian village complete with activities, events, dining and lodging and you have the ultimate winter getaway.

Leavenworth has a long and rich winter sports heritage. Winter brings the opportunity for all kinds of snow activities including downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, horseback/sleigh riding, and snowmobiling.

It was almost 8 years ago when I tried snowmobiling in Leavenworth for the first time. It was a beautiful and mind blowing experience ! And this time, I was very excited to introduce my 7 year old to the joy of snowmobiling in my favorite winter destination !

Leavenworth is considered one of the premier snowmobile locations in the country. The Leavenworth area offers countless miles of snowmobile trails through the magnificent Cascade Mountains. 

Even if you've never ridden a snowmobile in your life, let your first time be in this gorgeous surroundings !

Mountain Springs Lodge offers guided snowmobile tours, and provides all the necessary equipment from snow suits and helmets to boots, gloves and scarfs.

But the most exciting part is that you get to be the driver !

Operating a snowmobile is as easy as riding an electric scooter. No skills or experience necessary. If you have valid drivers license, you're all set to go. 

The company's brand new 4 stroke snowmobiles are fast, and easy to use. Heated handle bars make riding comfortable even in lower temperatures. And knowledgeable and helpful guides provide safe and exhilarating experience !

There is a variety of tours that last from 1 to 5 hours. 

A word of advice - if you decide to ride with your little one ( 5-7 year old ), opt for an hour long tour... Kids usually get either cold or bored. Bring a snack, and may be, a thermos to keep them warm and not cranky. 

And if your kid is 15 y.o or older he/she can ride the sled ! ( no driver license needed... BUT must be accompanied by a (paying) adult )

Also, I wish we had more opportunities to stop and "smell the roses " ( take pictures )... 
The only stop we made was on top of the mountain.

But all in all, it was an amazing trip ! 

I also added another idea to my Bucket List - go on  Moonlight Dinner Ride !
