Absolutely! We have sleds for beginners to experts and we can show you how to operate them. Before you arrive, you will want to take a DNR recommended snowmobile safety course (mandatory for any riders born after Jan 1, 1985). One option is https://www.snowmobile-ed.com/wisconsin/ . It is an online course, takes 3-4 hours and goes through the ins and outs of snowmobiling. We have jackets, bibs, helmets and gloves available for rent; see “What should I wear?” on how to dress.
Yes, you need to be 18 to rent. We have allowed 16 or 17 year olds to operate a snowmobile rented from their parents or guardians. There is no minimum age for passengers, as long as they can safely hold on and wear a helmet.
You need to be at least 18 years old, have a valid drivers license or government ID, a valid credit card for payment and incidentals, and have taken a snowmobile safety course. International ID is acceptable, we have had visitors from around the world.
The right gear can make the difference between a great ride and a miserable one. We have jackets, bibs and helmets available for rent; take a look at our gear page for more details. You should wear warm base layers and then have good outer layers. Avoid cotton and denim; once it gets wet it stays wet. For base layers, we recommend merino wool, alpaca or other cold weather tech materials. Socks – wool and alpaca are best. Look at hunting socks for options. Avoid cotton, unless you like cold, wet feet. You will want to have warm winter boots; insulated Muck style boots work well. We have some glove options, but good winter gloves are crucial for warm hands; the warmer the better. If you plan on driving the snowmobile mittens may not give you the flexibility you need, if you only plan on being a passenger mittens will work.
We have Fly Aurora jackets and bibs, size S-5X for men, and DSG Trail 2.0 jackets and bibs S-3X sized for women. All bibs are adjustable for heights. Our Z1R helmets are size S-4X, have heated visors and are modular. We have a variety of gloves. We do not have boots for rent or sale at this time.
You should be wearing all your gear, minus what you have rented from us, bring your driver’s license, a valid credit card, and a smile on your face.
Getting lost can be some of the fun, but if you follow the map and trails signs, it is generally easy to find your way back. The trails are well marked, with helpful signs along the way. We also provide maps, as well as show you some easy routes to follow. We recommend downloading the Polaris Ride Command App for your phone. It’s free, works with and without a cell signal, and provides great peace of mind.
We do offer tours on request, cost varies on time and size of group, the best way to get a guided tour is to call us to set one up.
We accept cash, check, debit and credit cards. If you do not pay with a credit card, we either need a credit card on file or the asset protection deductible on hold in case of incidentals.
Asset protection is required on all of our snowmobiles to help limit your out of pocket cost in case of an accident. The average cost of a snowmobile in our fleet is over $10,000, so we take the financial worry away. Similar to other insurances, in the event of an accident you pay a deductible, and we cover the rest. As long as you ride responsibly under our contract and State laws, such as not drinking and riding, your maximum deductible is $2500 per snowmobile. Power-sports equipment, such as snowmobiles are generally not covered under other insurances, which is why we require asset protection.
If you have a question that is not answered, please give us a call and we will be more than happy to help!
