CM Backcountry Rentals & Adventures Snowmobile Guides
My ultimate goal when starting CM Backcountry Rentals & Adventures seven years ago was to be able to share my passion and love for snowmobiling with other people. Being able to see other people experience the sport of snowmobiling and seeing them fall in love with a new adventure is something truly special. I grew up riding snowmobiles from the young age of six years old. From the moment I sat on a seat of a snowmobile, I fell in love with the sport. Growing up, I put snowmobiling first and everything else second. I dedicated my time to become the best snowmobiler I could possibly be. Now that I have been lucky enough to make snowmobiling my career, I push harder and harder every winter to make myself and others around me better. I strive to set an example on the mountain while riding and to show people what they are capable of on a snowmobile. The riding clinics we offer here at CM Backcountry has been a dream of mine for many years, I enjoy teaching people and exploring the backcountry from the seat of a snowmobile. Hope to see you out on the snow this year with CM Backcountry.
Hi, my name is Tim McMahon, aka barbershop. I’m from Helena, Montana in the summer and living the dream here in McCall during winter. I’ve been around snowmobiles ever since I could remember, whether it was wrenching on them or riding them they have been a big part of my life. In the last few years I had started thinking about turning my hobby into a career. I was lucky enough to get a chance to come work for Cody and Shelby at CM Backcountry the last 2 seasons and have loved every minute of it. Being able to guide has been a dream of mine ever since I started the sport and it sure hasn’t disappointed. The first thing I think everybody notices when coming to McCall is how cool the landscape and terrain is. Whether you’re hitting the jungle or heading for a soak at Burgdorf, the views and riding are epic. I am super happy to be coming back for the 2020-2021 season and look forward to all the adventures and fun we have and seeing new and old faces. Have the time of your life and book a trip to ride with us here at CM Backcountry!
When I started riding snowmobiles 9 years ago, it quickly became all I could think about. Being out on the snow definitely makes me live in the moment and appreciate the sleds and terrain that we are able to ride every year. Each year I am striving to progress and become a better rider and work on different techniques, always trying to challenge myself. Its always been a dream of mine to be a snowmobile guide and I am thankful now, to be able to do so. I'm looking forward to being able to help teach people progress their skills and become even better riders! Can’t wait to see everyone out on the snow!
