The first snowflakes of the fall season have already fallen in Northern Kentucky which means winter will be here before we know it. Sure, this part of the country is great for sledding and making snow angels, but if you’re looking to have a little more fun in the snow you might need to venture out west. Below, we’ve shared a list of the top three places in the U.S. to snowmobile this winter, courtesy of USA Today. Just be sure to bundle up.

Goosewing Ranch: Located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – a popular destination for both skiers and snowmobilers – Goosewing Ranch offers day and overnight guided tours, including one that features a trip to Yellowstone’s Old Faithful. On this tour, riders can view the wildlife of the region and visit some of the other attractions in the park.

Gunflint Trail: This spot, located in Northern Minnesota, is a year-round vacation destination. Known for its deep snow and snowmobile trails, the area boasts more than 350 miles of trails that are marked and prepared for skiing and snowmobiling. Riders have the option of taking the main trail system or exploring a scenic loop to take in the beautiful scenery. Other winter activities to do near the trails include ice fishing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, and sleigh rides.

Grand County, CO: This country includes Winter Park, Fraser, Grand Lake and Kremmling and features ski resorts and snowmobile trails. Grand Lake alone boasts 150 groomed and 150 non-groomed trails and Kremmling has snowmobile-friendly ranch-lands. While you’re there, take a ride above the timberline and check out panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and Continental Divide.
