The staff and equipment were great. Issue is when you get grouped with someone who thinks it is a sightseeing ride and only wants to go 10-15 mph. Staff might consider telling riders the speed to expect on the ride. For what I spent to do this left us disappointed.

We did the snowmobile tour and the dogsledding tour. Both were amazing and worth the wait. It was very cold outside but they gave us extra outside wear to keep us warm. Both guides were helpful and very knowledgeable of the area.
