Common Questions

 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SNOWMOBILE?

Best time to go snowmobiling is midweek or first thing in the morning. Each night the trails are groomed so the morning riding is awesome. Trails can be flat as a pancake. Many times during the week our tours are lucky to see 10 people on the trails.

DO YOU RENT CLOTHING?

Yes, we have all the clothing you need to stay warm. We rent jackets, boots, and pants. We also sell hand and toe warmers.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO WEAR/BRING?

We have a full packing list of recommended items available on our downloads page. Helmets are included with all rentals. You will want to dress warmly.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO GO SNOWMOBILING?

Without sounding silly,warm cloths. Dress in layers. Long johns and snow pants are a great starting point. We do allow anyone to take a tour in jeans & sneakers. A great analogy we use is: image driving a motorcycle or convertible with the temperature of 10-20 degrees.

CAN MY 14-YEAR-OLD SON OPERATE A SNOWMOBILE?

Unfortunately, in the state of New Hampshire, all drivers have to be 16 years of age with a valid drivers license to operate a snowmobile. Individuals 16 or older with a learners permit can operate a single snowmobile if they complete a child safety class.

ON A DOUBLE SNOWMOBILE CAN WE SWITCH DRIVERS?

Yes as long as both participants are at least 16 years of age with a valid drivers license. Tours stop periodically and you can switch drivers.

DO YOU OFFER PACKAGES WITH LODGING?

Yes. We work with a small number of hotels and inns to offer you lodging/rental packages. You can browse and request the basic packages online at our packages page or call if you have more specific questions.

I HAVE A LARGE GROUP THAT WOULD LIKE TO RENT. CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE US?

We can accommodate larger groups. Please contact us well in advance to discuss the options we have, as spaces fill quickly as the season begins.
