Ride Rasmussen Style offers the ultimate in backcountry snowmobile adventures and instruction. Our guides have been trained personally by “The Professor” himself, Bret Rasmussen.

We offer the experience of a lifetime for anybody who loves riding in technical mountain terrain. The Ride Rasmussen Style Clinics are great for everyone, whether you want to advance your skills or just beginning to learn. It’s our mission to help you become a better backcountry snowmobiler by teaching you tips and tricks to traverse the terrain easier and safer.  Even if you have limited time on a snowmobile, our team is here to help you have fun and stay safe. Don’t feel like you will be holding the group back or contrarily waiting for the groups as our intention is not to put on maximum miles each day, but to exercise technique and improve rider ability. Everyone will be challenged well beyond their limits and enjoy the adventure to the fullest. Clients may choose to participate for as many days as they desire but multi-day clinics are encouraged so the new riding techniques become second nature.

Besides Rasmussen certification, our guides have ALL passed a rigorous certification process attending a 16 hour Wilderness First Aid training, a 24 hour avalanche level 1 certification, a 24 hour avalanche level 2 certification, companion rescue certification and several are Pro 1 certified to teach avalanche training. Ride Rasmussen Style carries only the best avalanche and safety training and gear to ensure client safety is the highest priority at all times.

"Hands down the greatest time snowmobiling ever!"
