Bryan Landis General Manager
Bryan has ridden a snowmobile in the winter months as far back as he can remember. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, he moved to Montana in 2013 to work as a wrangler in Glacier National Park. That hunting season, he moved to the Swan Division where he continues to work as a Base Camp manager organizing summer pack trips and daily fishing, trail rides and llama treks. He also works as a guide and cook during the hunting season and manages his own farrier business. His favorite of all the seasons, though, is the snowmobile season. Bryan is certified in CPR, Wilderness First Aid and Avalanche Awareness and Winter Rescue.
Snowmobile Guides 2021 Season
We are fortunate (and so are you!) to have guides who know Northwest Montana deeply. This winter we are joined by Jacob Cloutier and Lee Smollin, who, during the summer and fall seasons, work in our Swan Valley and Salmon Forks locations. Chad Parker, Jason Loggins, and Kayla Bodri have all worked for us as trail ride guides in Glacier National Park. Their knowledge of this area and passion for outdoor recreation will inspire you. All of our guides hold current certifications in Wilderness First Aid and CPR. Our guides have also completed Level 1 Avalanche Training through the Flathead Avalanche Center.
Supporting Staff Reservations and Marketing
You’ll meet these helpful ladies when you book and get checked in for your trip. While the guides are out on the trail, Melanie Devitt and Ashley Luginbuhl will help get you scheduled for your trip or rental. They are often joined in the office by marketing specialists Becca Baldridge and Jessica Mulyca. Our support staff are with us year round and are very knowledgeable about the area and the other activities Swan Mountain Outfitters has to offer. If you want to come back to Northwest Montana after the snow has melted for a horse back ride, llama trek, fishing, or hunting experience, our support staff is here to help you with that too!
