Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail named of the country’s best places to ride

(Fremont County, Wyo.) – Once again SnoWest Magazine named the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail (CDST) one of the top places to ride in the country. The trail landed the No. 5 spot on SnoWest’s Western Guide to Snowmobiling for 2014. It also came in second on the magazine’s “Best of All Time” list since it has been No. 1 four times, in the top 10 all but one year and in the top 15 every year since SnoWest Magazine started the list 18 years ago. The magazine, considered the leading authority on adventure snowmobiling, uses reader surveys to rank trails for scenery, grooming, signage, maps, off-trail riding, snow quality, crowds, terrain, services and weather
