We recommend Rocky Mountain Riders, they offer customers a range of experiences from novice to expert. "Our wide variety of packages allows you to customize your trip to find just what you are looking for. We offer a wide variety of snowmobile packages, from extreme backcountry snowmobiling and skiing / snowboarding to scenic trail rides and ice fishing tours". After a cool day on the sled, enjoy a hot & soothing hottub or jacuzzi at Alpine Meadows Lodge.
Golden has a great selection of trails for snowmobiling, with regular grooming by the Golden Snowmobile Club. Trails at Quartz Creek(10), Blaeberry(1) or from nearby Golden Golf Course to Gorman(9) & Lang(8) offer an exciting range of mountain terrain. Take an experienced guide or be prepared for mountain winter conditions, have safety equipment and know how to use it!!
One of our guests was three year old Ty from Calgary. As you can see Ty went cruising on our trails at the lodge with his own snowmobile! Ty learned quickly under his Dad's careful coaching. With a special throttle limit, Ty was soon following his Dad down the trail. Later Ty went with his Dad on the big machine on our trails up to Cedar Lake. I guess the lesson is that you are never too old(or young) to learn how to enjoy great adventures in the Canadian Rockies!
