Meet Our Snowmobile Guides

Carter Gerdes

"I ride snowmobiles because the voices in my head tell me to. There’s absolutely no place on Earth like Togwotee Mountain Lodge. Come on out and ride, be safe, go home to your family, and then come again next month!

- Carter, Guide since 1996

Joe Martinez

"Over the years, I’ve gotten to ride with great individuals and develop incredible friendships with people from all over North America. I spend each summer looking forward to fostering these friendships and building more, all that’s to the experiences had at Togwotee Mountain Lodge!”

- Lefty, Guide since 2001


"Exploring the Continental Divide’s incredible terrain and sharing the adventures with our awesome guests keep me coming back year after year. Nothing beats introducing people to the amazing riding area right outside Togwotee’s door!"

-Noah, Guide since 2004

Brent Schaap

"You can’t top local knowledge. Our guides know where the best snow is and we can teach you how to ride better.  Plus, we’ll always get you to the lodge in time for happy hour. Togwotee has it all – diverse riding, big powder, big country, trail riding, sight-seeing, and wildlife viewing."

- Brent, Guide since 2005


"Being a snowmobile guide at the number one snowmobiling destination is such a privilege. I enjoy showing all my guests the beauty this area has to offer. From beginning riders to the most experienced there are many areas for all to enjoy. My emphasis is on safety and fun!"

- Kent, Guide since 2010


“I enjoy meeting new people every day, teaching them various ways of riding, and the memories that are created each season. Togwotee has great guides, insane powder, gnarly terrain, top of the line sleds, a very accommodating lodge and staff, all while being family-oriented."

- Riley, Guide since 2012
