FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT KIND OF CLOTHING SHOULD I WEAR?
You will need to wear appropriate clothing for the backcountry - preferably snowmobile or ski style. This includes thermal/base layers, good socks, waterproof jacket and pants, gloves, balaclava, waterproof insulated boots (note: ski boots not suitable), helmet and goggles.
I DON'T HAVE ANY RIDING GEAR, DO YOU RENT CLOTHING?
We have a few sets of riding gear available but sizes are limited. Should we be unable to get you fitted properly we will happily point you in the right direction to rent gear through one of the local suppliers.
DO YOU OFFER GIFT CARDS?
We sure do! Who wouldn't love getting a gift card to use to shred the mountains on a snowbike? You can purchase a gift card by sending us your name, the recipient's name, and the amount. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS YOUR POLICY FOR DAMAGED SNOWBIKES?
A damage deposit of $2000 per snowbike must be provided prior to the snowbike leaving the premises. In the unlikely event that a snowbike is damaged, the cost of parts and repair will be taken from the damage deposit and the balance refunded to the customer within 24 hours. Damage insurance (for damages over $1000) is also available at request for $50/day, which reduces the damage deposit to $1000.
I'VE ONLY RIDDEN A BIKE A COUPLE OF TIMES. WILL IT BE HARD TO RIDE?
Riding a snowbike is just like riding a dirtbike, except without a front brake.
I'VE NEVER RODE ANY KIND OF BIKE BEFORE. CAN I RENT ONE AND WILL I BE OK?
As long as you can work out simple clutch, gears and balance control, you will be fine. Most new riders will usually get the hang of a snowbike within the first hour of riding. We have had lots of clients who had never touched a clutch before and were ripping to the tops of mountains straight away.
WHAT IS YOUR POLICY FOR DAMAGED BACKCOUNTRY BACKPACKS AND AVALANCHE SAFETY GEAR?
A damage deposit of $500 per backpack must be provided prior to leaving the premises (deposit is waived if renting a snowbike at the same time). In the unlikely event that a backpack or avalanche safety gear is damaged or missing, the cost of replacement will be taken from the damage deposit and any remaining balance will be refunded to the customer within 24 hours.
ARE SNOWBIKES AS HARD TO LEARN TO RIDE AS A BACKCOUNTRY SNOWMOBILE?
Generally speaking, no. Snowbikes are a point and turn machine - no counter weighting or moving quickly around the machine. You can sit down all day long and find yourself with energy to finish the day on.
WHICH PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept all Credit cards, Debit cards, cash and Interac transfers.
