Experience the excitement of driving a snowmobile up to 7,000 feet through the majestic Rocky Mountains in Golden, BC on a full day tour!

You will be guided through spectacular scenery and given the opportunity to play in the powder.

After an informational safety talk, the guide will help you get you familiar with your new eco-friendly 600cc snowmobile (with heated hand-grips and easy-to-use controls).

Start your ride by winding your way up through the scenic mountain trails, and your guide will stop to offer instructional tips and interesting information about the area. After a short break for creamy hot chocolate and homemade cookies, and another ride further up the mountain to about 7,000 feet, enjoy a delicious mountainside BBQ lunch. Enjoy chatting with other guests while warming up by the fire!

After making your journey back down the mountain again towards the end of the day, you will finish your gratifying day of snowmobiling at the home base and have a refreshing drink before heading back home.
