Backcountry and Extended Backcountry Tours

Head off-property and into the wild on a Paws Up Backcountry Tour. Ride along in a Polaris General vehicle with our guide or hop in the driver’s seat with up to three passengers. On the Backcountry Tour you’ll drive through the Garnet Mountain Range to Garnet Ghost Town, the most pristine and well-preserved ghost town in Montana. There, you’ll travel back in time as you explore the buildings, scenery and fixtures of an era long faded into history.

On the Extended Backcountry Tour, you’ll head to the Garnet Mountain Range. At more than 7,000 feet, you’ll enjoy a 360-degree view of the valley. Then you and your passengers will traverse the mountain all the way back to The Resort. It’s a relaxing journey for anyone who craves a mountain adventure in the great outdoors.

All Polaris Generals drivers are required to be 18 years old or above with a valid driver’s license. All passengers must be able to grasp handhold, plant feet firmly on the vehicle floor and have their back fully against the backrest. Helmets and eye protection are required to be worn when the vehicle is being operated. Long pants, a long sleeve shirt and closed-toe shoes are highly recommended for a safe, comfortable ride.
