Sled only rentals may be picked up as early as 8:00 AM on the day of your rental. Sleds must be dropped off by 6:00 PM on the final day of rental or face a late return fee of $50 (if later than 1 hour). After 3 hours of being late, a full day rental will be charged.
Clients that are doing a sled only rental (no guide) must be familiar with how to operate the snowmobile, what ice scratchers are & how to use them, how to not overheat the snowmobile while riding trail, capable of hooking up to and unhooking a trailer, capable of driving a vehicle while pulling a trailer, capable of loading, securing, and unloading the snowmobile from a trailer, basic mechanical understanding of the machine and how to diagnose issues, and must know the overall basics of how a snowmobile operates.
Clients should also be well equipped to be in the backcountry. This includes having all the tools needed to make on-mountain repairs to the snowmobile, emergency supply kit, first aid kit, mule rope, fire starter, SPOT GPS, spare clothing, food & water, & proper backcountry knowledge. While Backcountry first aid and Avalanche knowledge is not required, it is very helpful to have when riding without a guide. If you do not feel comfortable with possessing all of the items mentioned above and nobody else in your group possesses them either, ride with one of our guides and learn how to ride alone before going out on your own.
Clients are responsible for any damage that occurs while the snowmobile, trailers, gear, and anything else from TSA is in their possession. Clients are responsible for the first $750 ($2,000 on turbo models) of combined damage per machine. TSA has 36 hours after a rental is dropped off to inspect it for damages.
