Who Can Ride a Snowmobile?
Anyone over the age of 4 is able to go on a snowmobile tour at Winter Park Resort! However, in order to drive one, you must be over 16 years old and have a valid drivers license.
You are able to ride two people to a snowmobile, but note there is a 400 pound total weight limit.
What To Expect on a Snowmobile Tour in Winter Park Resort
Your guide will go over all the rules and explain how to work and drive the snowmobile before the tour. They do a great job making sure you feel comfortable before starting.
I was a little nervous going into because I had never driven one before, but luckily, it really is quite easy to drive! Of course, still be cautious. But don’t be deterred from booking a tour because you never have driven one before!
We did the 2-hour Continental Divide Adventure tour and it was fantastic! This tour is the most popular one in the entire state and perfect for beginners/all abilities!
What To Bring Snowmobiling in Winter Park
Definitely dress in layers, it’s COLD. Dress as you would if you were going skiing, including gloves and goggles. I would highly recommend something to keep your neck and face warm too (like a neck gaiter).
They provide boots and DOT certified helmets free of charge. They also have snow suits, gloves, etc. at the tour place, but are an additional cost. You can also rent goPro gear too!
Where Do You Go Snowmobiling?
Your guide will take you on the best route through the continental divide depending on the weather and snow conditions.
Thank you to Shelly for most of the awesome video!
It was snowing during our tour so we didn’t see the views as clear as you normally would, but honestly, I’m not upset about it… the snow falling like that was magical.
Our guide took us along some single track routes, it was like being in Narnia! Huge, snow covered pine trees lined the entire path (seen in the video above — screenshot below).
