1. Re: Places to rent snowmobiles?

Here's what I know about snowmobiling in Walworth County, which includes the area of Lake Geneva, Delavan, Fontana, etc. You have to have a snowmobile pass that can be obtained through the Walworth County Clerks office. All snowmobile trails are on private properties and they are maintained by local clubs. I thought possibly that some of the places in Lake Geneva and Delavan that rent boats, wave runners etc. might also rent snowmobiles, but I can't find any that do. I am guessing this is because of what I mentioned above with the requirement of passes and clubs maintaining the trails. You might want to check with some of the area resorts, particularly Grand Geneva since they have winter sports onsite.

This question has come up on other Wisconsin forums, but not Lake Geneva that I can remember.

It seems to me not as easy as one would think to find a place to rent a snowmobile.

Maybe it's a liability issue.

You might also try looking up snowmobile dealers on yellowpages.com and calling around to see if any of them knows someone who rents snowmobiles.

Also Toelle's suggestion of checking with the resorts sounds good. They could possibly have snowmobiles available for guests.
