Important Snowmobile Rental Information and Policies

An Understanding – Release of Liability

As with most adventure activities, there are inherent risks involved. Each snowmobile rental participant or self-guided tour participant must acknowledge this by reading and signing a liability release form prior to departure.

Drivers must be at least 18 years old and present a valid driver’s license. All of our one person sleds (1 up) are for single riders only. Passengers are only allowed on our two person sleds (2 up). Minimum age of passenger is 8 years old. If driver has a passenger under 18 years old, the driver must be 25 years old.

Snowmobile Rental Damage Deposit Details

On the day of the rental, renters will be required to purchase a damage waiver program. Assuming no damages at the end of your rental, your chosen security deposit will be voided. If there are damages associated with the operation of the rental, the credit card will be charged in full for all damages and retrieval costs that are incurred.

  • FREE/day: Standard protection = $1000 security deposit for damages to the vehicle.

Don’t Be Stupid ~ Ride Sober!

Maine has a very strict OUI law for snowmobile operators. Anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or demonstrating unruly behavior, will be denied services without refund.

Cancellation Policy

Deposits for snowmobile rentals are refundable, minus the 20% cancellation fee of the full reservation up to 2 weeks prior to arrival. Assuming satisfactory conditions exist, cancellations made inside the 2 weeks to arrival would forfeit the 50% of the full rental fee, likewise, the remaining balance if cancelling inside 48 hours to arrival. If you need to reschedule your rental within the same season (if availability exists), there will be a $25 rebooking fee per machine. If it cannot be rescheduled within the same season, it is considered a cancellation.
