5 of us from work went. Very friendly staff. Experience of a lifetime. Wish we had done the 2 hour tour. 6" Fresh powder on lake made it even better. It's a must do.

Great exciting 3.5 hr snowmobile. After the ride, we rested in a shed that provided hot drinks and snacks for us. Great experience of snowmobile.
