Cancellation of Tours
Tours can be cancelled without charge up to 24 hours prior. For cancellations within 24 hours or on the day of your tour departure, a $50 admin fee will be charged.
Riding a Snowmobile
Your speed is controlled by a thumb activated throttle. Braking is done with one hand while steering takes place through a handle bar. Alpine snowmobiling also requires much steering by active riding position and riders should be in good physical shape. Due to the nature of riding and for liability reasons, a minimum age of 18 is required to ride your own snowmobile (or 16 with parents and valid driver's license / snowmobile license).
Riders' Registration, Liability & Insurance
We do our best to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants, but since snowmobiling involves known and unknown risks we require all guests to sign an assumption of risk statement and liability waiver prior to tour or rental departure. Waivers are available prior to making your reservation. We strongly advise participants to carry good medical insurance including recovery by helicopter.
Avalanches & Riding Safety
Please note that weather, snow, road and/or avalanche conditions may alter the riding programs and destinations. All of our guides are certified in avalanche safety. For all backcountry tours lasting longer than 2 hours we will provide avalanche safety equipment to guests at no charge.
Tours: Optional insurance of $35 per day/tour reduces the deductible from the full damage amount to $1,000 per incident. Please note our detailed rental conditions and excluded damages (fires & tunnels and bulkhead damages). Insurance is subject to applicable taxes. Optional insurance is included in all short tours with the exception of the Summit Tour.
Average winter temperatures range between 0 to -10 degrees C. Full protective clothing is provided by us on all tours. Equipment provided includes a protective snowmobile suit, snowmobile boots and snow cross-style helmet (no goggles or gloves). Please bring the following: goggles, gloves, t-shirt & turtleneck, long underwear, warm socks, sunglasses, sunscreen, neck warmer or balaclava. Ski gear works fine for snowmobile tours.
