We are snowmobile novices. After researching online and talking to local outlets, we chose McQuoids. It was a fantastic day. We did the daylight rental, with a Guide for the first three hours. They have any necessary gear non-snowmobilers don't have for a trip up North in the Winter. The sleds were newer models, easy to start, and the handwarmers worked so well, had to turn them down to medium on a 12 degree day in Minnesota. Our guide Terry showed us the trails, the right way to pass other snowmobilers and groomers while on the trails, and answered all of our dumb questions with a friendly and understanding manner. The resort is just across the street from the Soo Line Trail which you can take to some great places to eat in Waukon or novice friendly trails through the woods at Red Top. 6+ hours and we used $25 of gas per sled. Rest of the staff was friendly and accommodating. If you want to try snowmobiling at Mille Lacs. you are in good hands with McQuoids.
