Essentially you’ll want to dress for playing in the snow all day. We suggest a good pair of polypropylene style long underwear (top, bottom–and women will appreciate a good sports bra); a good pair of ski socks (polypropylene or wool, no cotton); comfortable middle layers over long underwear suits such as sweaters, sweatshirts, and sweatpants; polar fleece; waterproof and windproof outer layers (ski or snow pants and jacket); gloves. Helmets are required (and provided free of charge for all riders). Earrings can be uncomfortable under helmets, so you will want to keep that in mind. A camera is also a must-have to capture the spectacular beauty of snow dusted trees, frozen lakes and blanketed mountain sides. Always remember to bring fluids and food.

                                                   

All the essential backcountry safety gear; back pack, Radio, shovel , probe, beacon, and Helmets are included with every rental. We also will walk through each machine with each renter. Explaining the machine itself, all the parts and what to pay attention for. We will instruct each renter on how to operate the machine – changing a belt, how to fill the oil reservoir and fill with fuel to name just a few. Remember we are here to make your trip an exciting and memorable time, if you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask.
