Renters have to be over the age of 16 and must hold a drivers license. Passengers must be age 9 or older. In order to rent a sled, a $1,000 security deposit hold on a credit card is required. If the sled is returned in the same condition as when rented, this hold is released from the card. Holds on Debit cards take longer to release, some banks also will not allow it. Check with your financial institution.
When Should I Get There?
Plan on arriving an hour before your tour - so at 8 am for the 9am tour or at 12 noon for the 1pm tour. There is paperwork to be filled out, you will need to watch a safety video, if snow conditions warrant it may take you a bit longer than you anticipate to get there, you will want time to put on your gear and be ready to start as close to 9am as possible.
What Gear Do I Need?
Your tour includes your seld rental and a helmet. Snowmobiling is a cold sport, so you will need specific gear for sledding. We rent bibs, jackets, gloves, and boots and HIGHLY recommend getting the gear if you do not have gear. We do not generally recommend skiing gear as it tends to be lighter weight and may smell from gasoline after time out on the sleds.
