Considering the competing snowmobile tours that South Lake Tahoe has to offer, this one ranks at just okay. It's a closed circuit which would've been mildly underwhelming if the tour was any longer than 30 minutes.

We asked if it was possible to pull over and take a picture on the snowmobile without our helmets and one of the workers told us no. Rather than offering an alternative, she made it seem like we wouldn't be able to get our picture at all. When you go snowmobiling, it's only natural to want to capture the experience - especially after spending money to drive in circles.

Luckily, we asked another worker and he was more than happy to bring up an unused snowmobile and take pictures for us with the mountain as a backdrop. Overall, it was fine; however, I will be going elsewhere next time I return to SLT.

The reservation was easy via web, although when we drove by we didn't know 'no walk in' so we booked and come back the next day. There is a liability waiver you must fill and sign before you can do anything, which really holds the line because people are doing it at the check in window. Honestly, there is a QR code by the line and if you scan it and filled it as you are in the line, you are helping yourself to speed up as well as anyone behind you. But why they don't have this online while you make the online reservation???!!

Anyway check in was a pain about 20-30m wait because each group takes like 10min. After that was fun. The two guys on top of the little hill are very nice and have the spirit of having fun! My kido loved it. Lots of work for us as parent to pull the kid back up the hill but...glad it is only 1 hour. I would be dead if it is longer.

Overall, great location. You will see it as you drove on the main road. Parking is across the gate on the other side of the street ...you have to look for it. There is an open space and there are more by the casino and in the casino although it says parking is only for casino guest.

We thought just doing laps would not be as fun but it turned out to be really fun! 30 min was the perfect amount of time for a two-seater with one adult and one kid. My 12 year old rode in the back with my husband and they stopped mid-time to switch placed. My 9 year old rode with me, he was in the front and was able to drive without us having to stop to switch seats,
Our reservation was at 2:30. We arrived before 2:15 as instructed. Received clean head socks and helmets. Didn't get to ride until about 3:15 so that was a bit of a long wait.
Made reservations the morning of during Covid times (Dec. 2020).
Portable-potty available.

If you have been snowboarding or tubing before this place is way to expensive for the experience, the tubing is just a small hill and you walk back to the top, the snowmobiling is like a kitty ride, you go around in a circle at a slow speed. This place is good mostly for tourist that have never done these things before. But if you are a snowmobiler or been tubing elsewhere, this would be a total rip off for you. Even our daughter who has never been tubing got bored with it real quick. But we made the best of it. Prices should be way lower for what it is.

I booked the combo package a few weeks in advance for my wife and two daughters, ages 7 and 11. It was a fairly decent deal and we enjoyed our experience. The staff was really good and the process was simple and fairly quick. The snowmobiling portion is taking laps around a track that is probably 1/3 of a mile. The snow tubing has 4 hills that are pretty much all the same. My kids loved both parts of it. My only complaints were that it was too crowded and the snowmobiling time was too short. I would have liked 45 minutes instead of 30. We would probably do this again in the future.

My wife and I did the snowmobile and snow tubing. We both enjoyed the experience especially the snowmobile as it was both our first time. However, we think one hour on the Snowmobile would have been even better as it only was for 30 minutes. There should be options for longer times.

Every staff member was very nice and courteous to us. We didn't have young ones with us, but the place is great for those with children. I noticed in the snow tubing that staff members were very nice to everyone especially to the children. This should be one of your stops if you are ever in South Lake Tahoe and short on time. We spent 30 minutes on snowmobile and one hour on tubing.

Even though we have been on ATV's and wave runners before we had never operated a snow mobile. So before we went on the 2 hour tours offered in Lake Tahoe we decided to "practice" at a track snowmobile course first to get the hang of it. It is expensive at $75.00 for a half hour but they will let you take turns with your friends, spouse as long as you all bring your drivers licenses. You really only need about 10 minutes to get the hand of operating them and the turns since they are automatic. I feel it was worth it and made our longer tour up at the summit better. We did the track across from the Mont Bleu casino.

What a BLAST!!! Our family of four, 16 yo and 20yo daughters, had an incredible tour with Randon and Miley! Very helpful and so much fun! Check-in process was a breeze and we were fitted for our helmets right away. Photos on sight, as well as a photo on the trail. We stopped a few times along the tour to enjoy the view and take photos. Don’t let the drive from South Lake to North Lake deter you. We made the drive from SL today while it was heavily snowing. It was a breeze (and we are from Louisiana and not used to snow). There were several plows along the way. Stopped for a quick lunch before our 2:00 tour at Turtle Creek Cafe in Incline Village it is right off the main road. Great lil place.! This was a great tour for first-timers as well as experienced riders. We will definitely take this tour again! Our family had the best day!

We came with our 3 teenagers and arrived at 10am for opening. We had the tubing runs to ourselves for a while and then slowly people started showing up. We had a blast and would definitely do it again on another trip. The staff was very friendly and the tubes are comfortable. Worth the $ we spent.
