We are in the process of building a new website! Please check back Mid – September 2022.
Cheap Thrills has decided to make some changes to our offerings this season in an effort to keep everyone on the mountain safer. We will be doing 4-Hour, 5-Hour, & 7-Hour Rental Periods. It’s our goal to get all of our guests off the mountain by 4pm, before the sun starts to set. If guests arrive at the office for their reservation an hour late, they will not be allowed to go out and will forfeit their rental fee. We believe that most problems, accidents, and issues happen in the backcountry between 4 & 6pm, after the sun has gone down with very little people or support around to help. Guest must understand before booking a backcountry snowmobile trip, that there is hardly any services available to you including cell service, road side assistance, or medical help. We are not trying to scare you, but you need to be aware and be cautious. Please note that less than 5% of our guests end up in a fender bender or accident.
4 – Hour – Start time options are: 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm. ( 4 – Hours is Perfect to ride into Secesh for lunch and return on time. If you book this time to soak at Burgdorf Hot Springs you will only have 1 hour to soak before returning to get back on time without incurring a late fee.)
5 – Hour – Start time options are: 9am, 10am, 11am ( 5 – Hours is Perfect to book a 2 hour soak time with Burgdorf Hot Springs & return on time. Or you can either make it into Warren or Secesh for lunch and return on time without incurring a late fee.)
7 – Hour – Start time is 9am ( 7 Hours will give you enough time to visit all 3 Locations: Warren, Secesh, and Burgdorff Hot Springs)

Trip Tip: Secesh & Warren
Another half day trip can take you further up the trail from Burgdorf to the historic gold mining town of Warren. Allow 1 1/2 Hours to reach this destination. Along the way, plan a stop at the Secesh Stage Stop. This store has been reopened under new ownership and is serving a variety of eats and beverages. This well known eatery is located 25 miles up the trail and is a real bonus to your snowmobiling experience.
