We have a lot of different trails to choose from on our snowmobile adventures. Trails are chosen based on rider ability. Everything is blanketed with snow and provides amazing scenery around every turn. Thank you for the review.

There will not be enough snow (if any at all) in September. Usually by early to mid November we will have enough snow to operate.
