Location & Hours
Phenomenal experience. We chose the 2 hr snowmobile summit tour, it was awesome. Had never ridden a snowmobile before, EVER! and yet with the tutorial before going out, I felt entirely comfortable within 20m of riding. Our guide, Brad was experienced and put us in a position to succeed. You'll most likely be broken into small groups and taken into the back country on packed trails. The day that we went out was chilly and I thought I'd need the extra clothing offered, but I survived with a layers, warm gloves, hat. The key to survival is the heated handles of the snowmobile. Your helmet and goggles are on the house, but you can rent extra gear if necessary. All in all a great experience I'd love to do again.
Great 1st time experience! Parking is very very limited, so plan accordingly. We had to park across the street and walk, about 1/4 mile with a major street crossing with moderate/heavy traffic. Once waivers were signed, we grabbed a helmet (provided) and loaded onto a coach bus. Additional gear available to rent. Highly recommend a helmet with a face shield and a neck gaiter that's able to be pulled up for additional protection. I was nervous at first, but we were given quality instruction prior to riding and I was good to go in no time. Recommend giving snowmobiling a shot! You won't regret the views.
We had an awesome time on the snowmobiles! Every employee we encountered was super nice and helpful. The views were amazing! We had a blast. 10/10, definitely recommend.
This was such a fun day for us and the best part was touring up the mountain in our small group, enjoying the scenery. Our guide was terrific and for beginners, we all did really well. It's definitely a tour for the whole family; even appropriate for young kids too, probably 5+ yo. Being the busy season, it was a little chaotic getting set up in the tour center. The lodge is small and there were people everywhere trying to figure out what was going on, where to go, how to get gear, etc. It was overwhelming to say the least. They didn't have nearly enough lockers to store your belongings nor enough helmets with appropriate visors to protect from the elements. Don't get me wrong, the gear was good quality, we were all warm on the journey and even though the snowmobiles are old, they still handled well and went pretty fast. I would definitely go back to Tahoe Adventures.
Loved our Summit snowmobile tour! The group was small enough that we got our own guide and basically ended up having a private tour. Having read other reviews when booking, I was a bit nervous. Yes, the office staff can be a bit rude and hard to communicate with, but the actual tour guides were lovely, so try to look past the rest and just enjoy. Make sure to bring some cash to tip your bus driver and tour guide. Oh, and definitely get the photos! The photographer was delightful and we love our momento.
