Frequently asked questions

No you shouldn’t as long as you stay on the trail, read the signs, and don’t go into the out of bounds areas. We operate on a County Road that is closed to traffic in the winter months and is groomed periodically throughout the week by the County. These trails lead to 4 distinct areas for you to choose from. Know the boundaries before you go, so we know where to start looking for you if you don’t come back and give our staff a general idea of the direction your headed in before leaving. Our out of bounds areas are past Burgdorf Hot Springs, past Warren, east of Secesh Meadow, crossing Hwy 95 from the Brundage Trail System, going over the river towards Payette Lake or Blackwell Lake.
Yes and No. Driving a snowmobile is like learning to drive a car. Don’t follow too close, beware of your surroundings, and weather/snow conditions. Travel at a safe speed that you are comfortable with. Don’t travel at speeds out of your comfort zone or skill level as you never know what is around the next corner. Most accidents happen from snowmobiles running into each other, traveling too fast and running off the trail to find a tree stump. Drugs and alcohol should never be consumed while operating a recreational vehicle for yours and everyone else’s safety.
Yes, we will show you and go over the operation and safety instructions of the snowmachine. Along with showing you where you can get assistance if needed. 9 times out of 10, it’s the guests that don’t pay attention that end up with damage or in accidents.
Not really…. Some carriers, you can get cell service at the top of Secesh Summit and at the top of Brundage Mountain.
The service is limited…. What I mean by that is there is no hospital or medical trained staff located in the backcountry. If you are in an accident, it’s best to send someone to flag someone down on the trail or to a phone to get service’s coming to you and be aware of your exact location so you can be found easier. They will need to call 911 and then call our staff in the parking lot. Our staff has first aid kits, blankets, and can help direct emergency services to your location. We can also get to you faster to offer assistance until help can arrive. Please know that it can take up to 1 to 2 hours for medical help to get to you depending on your location, the weather, and the severity of your injuries. This is why it’s always important to be cautious and prepared when adventuring into the great outdoors.
The fire station outside of Secesh has an outdoor emergency land line. Also, the staff at The Stage Stop in Secesh, The Baum Shelter in Warren, or Burgdorf Hot Springs will be able to call out for assistance.
Yes, we require all riders to wear a DOT Certified Helmet. You can bring your own DOT Certified Motorcycle or Snowmobile Helmet. Our staff will look at it to ensure it has no cracks or defects
No, they are not rated for high enough speeds.
Yes, but keep in mind that most ski gear is not insulated as it’s made for movement and light weight. Skiers create energy which makes heat, whereas snowmobiling isn’t much movement. Also, there is a wind chill facture to keep in mind traveling at 45mph. We won’t make you wear our gear but know that we don’t issue refunds due to you not dressing appropriately for the weather conditions.
This is probably the most asked question… With tons of designers making cute little snow boots that we all love to wear, but realistically are not practical at all. Even the staple Sorel boot has joined the madness and has made many stylish boots that don’t work for snow. So here is what I would ask you to consider before deciding…. If you own a pair of boots that will keep your feet dry and warm if you stood outside in 5ft of snow shoveling or walking for 5hours straight, with good rubber soles, then you are good to go. They need to be high enough, so snow doesn’t go over the top of the boot when you are sitting down, and your pants go up. Most good snow boots are rated for either Heavy Snow or -20 Degrees.
Yes, they have small compartments for storage. However, if you want to pack a lunch or towels, we recommend that you bring a backpack or bag that can be worn by the driver or strapped to the back of the snowmobile. Make sure it’s water resistant.
Well, no. However, I can tell you from experience that our heavy duty trucks with 4X4 get stuck in the parking lot at least 3 to 4 times a year. County staff get sick or they can’t keep up with big snow falls and it can pile up fast making it hard to get in or out of the parking lot. I say, give it a go, but if you have a low clearance rear wheel drive car, then be sure to bring a good shovel, sand, tow strap, and some beer money to pay someone to pull you out. On another note… every year a guest or 2 lose their car keys while snowmobiling which can cause a headache of waiting for someone to bring a spare from the Valley, so please be careful where you put them. We are helpful, but not magicians.
Good question! Technically it’s the person that holds the reservation. So, if grandma makes the reservation for everyone, then she is the one that is legally responsible for damages to all the machines under her reservation. Now, how that is worked out among the group is between them, but when it comes to collection time it will be grandma that will be on the hook. To avoid this, we highly recommend individuals book their own reservation and take their own responsibility.
