“Highlight of our holiday”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Oh my God. What a awesome trip. This was by far the highlight of our holiday. We'd never been on a snowmobile before, but we were given full instruction on how to use them. My husband and I had one between us, him driving or should that be riding (I'm not sure) and me as a passenger. The staff were all lovely. Our guide Matt, was wonderful, a great laugh,really friendly, but not foolhardy, so as to put people at risk. I'm led to believe that Rocky Mountain riders are the only snowmobile company in the area, which let you have free time on the lake to enjoy yourself. We went on a snowmobile/ice fishing trip. Made a couple of holes in the ice, set up a few lines, then had fun, charging about the lake. We then got a call from Matt to say that hot chocolate was ready, and also the burgers were cooking. I'm also led to believe that RMR are the only ones to provide food on their trips.
The views were wonderful.
All in all, this was a trip not to be missed. A full day out. Transport was included from Banff.

“Extreme backcountry tour was even better than I had hoped for.”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The machines were powerful and reliable. Our guide, Jan, was very knowledgable, easy-going, skilled, and held many safety credentials.

We were provided with avalanche packs and beacons and were shown how to use them.

The scenery, terrain and conditions were awesome. We are experienced flat land riders and were quite honestly intimidated by the sheer magnitude of the terrain. Jan never pushed us beyond our comfort zone and always explained the plan of attack for each ascent and descent.

This was a bucket list experience which I intended on doing once but will now come back and do it again.

“Moon Light snowmobile tour”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

During our ski trip to Kicking Horse, my wife surprised me with a moon light snowmobile tour (she is the best!) We had a blast. I had done snowmobile before, but never at night. it was really special. it was really exciting to speed in the trails in the dark beneath the tall pines, deep cliffs bordering the trail and the view was amazing. Matt, our tour guide, was the best. He's great at this job, really friendly and professionnal, made us laugh and even brought us hot coco and chocolate cookies to warm us at one of the overlooks. He's a real chef! I would recommend this activity to everyone who likes uncommon nightly adventures. Or any fun wife who wants to surprise her outdoorsy husband.
