    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When snowmobiling it is important to remember that the same rules apply as driving an automobile - don't drink and drive! There have been many accidents and deaths that have been attributed to high speeds and intoxicated drivers. Be smart! This is a really fun way to get around the area.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Weather is unpredictable, even in summer. Be prepared for cool weather, rain and heat in summer.

    This winter was mild, but winter can be harsh with temperatures below zero at times. Boots, gloves, and winter jackets are a must from November - March.
