Went to Quartz creek with a group of friends. This was my first time ridding. Went sledding in my t-shirt in Quartz Creek. Mike is a great guide and accommodating to all riders (beginners and advanced). He had great tips and took us out to different areas for all skill levels. we were fortunate enough to have great weather May... More

Accomplished sledder or just a beginner, it's worth giving Mike at Snow Peaks a call. He's willing to Taylor a trip to fit anyone. In our last trip he was able to guide us to areas we deffinatly wouldn't have found without him. Rentals are kept current and Mike provides a great time.

Spent the day with Brian (Hippy) had a blast! He was a awesome guide to Quartz Creek! Definitely recommend renting a snowmobile from this Snow Peak Rentals. Equipment is awesome and gear is all included no hidden fees. Beautiful weather! Scenery was outstanding. Memorized by all the snow and how well the trails are groomed. Fellow snowmobilers thank you for... More

What a blast. Two of us wanting a good father and son experience. We were not disappointed. We were treated by Mike and fitted out with the latest gear and then off to the trails. Neither one of us had any experience to speak of and Mike was a patient and subtle teacher. We spent the first half day practicing... More

We had a great time with Mike. The sun was shining and we saw some excellent views. I would highly recommend Snow Peak Rentals.

Mike was an excellent guide with extensive knowledge of the trails and area. Great to have a laugh with and very forgiving when I rolled the sled a couple of times. Good quality machine and company. Would certainly come back again to him again if I return to Golden.

After 17 years in business, I still can't believe how untruthful and "tough" someone can become when they get behind the keyboard on a computer! I am the owner and the only one involved on behalf of Snowpeak rentals from the very beginning. Firstly, the sled is a 2013 and in PERFECT shape throughout. (see attached photo here or go... More

We went snowmobiling winter 2013 and I must say I felt nickel and dimed during this experience. Mike is very charismatic and seems very enthusiastic and makes you feel like he's giving you a great deal. But he is NOT. Do not get the insurance. Not worth the 2000 deductible. If you rent other gear-may sure you ask how much... More

I do not believe this is a valid customer. The response is in July. Didn't take too many trips in July!!!! We are the largest and oldest snowmobile rental & tour company in Golden. I guess someone is always gunning for #1!!! Thanks & c u soon, Mike Palumbo. More

Mike! Good laughs and some good Riding! Golden is a sweet area for some big mountains and excellent riding. Will be back next year to do it all over again. Try to get a few more days of sledding in next time!!!
