We had a group of 13 people, including 5 children between 11-9 years old. All of us had a wonderful time on our snowmobile tour. The children enjoyed riding their own mini snowmobiles in the practice field (although I think the track does need to be a bit longer for them). All drivers had a passenger, five drivers with children and one driver with an adult passenger. After a fair amount of time on the field to run with and without our passengers, we began a truly scenic and enjoyable tour of the national park. While we never reached high speeds, due to our travel party of youngsters, the views were amazing and the experience fun and very exciting for the kids and a few if the apprehensive adults. My only negative comment would be that our guide did get a bit short-tempered when one of the dads tipped over with his 10 year old son and he had to help them up the embankment. Otherwise, an ideal experience at a reasonable price. Definitely would book tours with them in the future.

My sister, brother-in-law and niece were visiting from Texas during spring break, and my sister checked into this as an alternative after a 12-year break from skiing. What an awesome discovery this was! All of us were over the age of 15, so we opted for the Performance tour, where each of us operates our own snowmobile. (Other, more tame tours are available for tandem riding with kids, and more adventurous tours for experienced riders, as are snowcat and zipline tours). The entire operation is most professional, beginning with a snowmobile operation and handling orientation, then a few laps around the practice track, after which you take off with a small group and your guide (ours was Oz, and he was excellent!) for a trail and open range ride up to 12,500 feet. Lots of fun and very scenic! I am an avid snowboarder and was interested in this trip as an alternative, and I came back wanting to buy a snowmobile. A great way to spend a couple of hours, yet close enough to Leadville, Ski Cooper, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge and Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek and Loveland. Fun Fun Fun!

My wife and I went up with our son and daughter-in-law on Saturday, 2/22/14. This trip was a belated and surprise Christmas present. I confess to being scared to death. Not of the snowmobile but of freezing to death. The kids live in Denver but we live in Tucson, AZ and didn't exactly have the warmest clothing with us, (it was, after all, a surprise). Not to worry, White Mountain has full snowmobile suits, helmets and boots to loan at no additional cost. Even the handgrips and footwells on the snowmobile are heated. We were toasty warm for the entire trip. A two hour tour was promised and they delivered all of that and then some. We toured in a group of six through the forest on packed trails and into snow bowls with magnificent mountai vistas. All the speed you wanted was there or you could lag back a bit and just enjoy. A very high recommendation for these folks, they really know how to make you happy.
You will definitely need your own gloves and sunglasses or goggles. Other than that, they supply all you need.

White Mountain Tours gave us an amazing adventure! We snowmobiled 2/25/14 and Alan was our awesome guide. Our group of 5 had 2 couples and a single. The single was a 22 year old male who feared the Prospector Tour would be unexciting and boring. He was just as excited and had as much fun as we 40's couples. Alan, our guide, took the time to evaluate the riders in our group and adjust the tour to the adventurous nature of those in our party. The check in was easy, the check out was easy, the company has tons of snow suits and snow boots for loan (for free!) if you need them. They also have an awesome photographer taking your pics throughout the tour with a CD of all your shots available for purchase at the end of the tour. Alan was very informative and allowed us to stop near Turquoise Lake to take pics and gave us tons of info about Leadville, the surrounding mountains and area. We loved it and would recommend this company to everyone!

My wife and i Was looking for snowmobiling and found 2 companies advertising in breckenridge, good times and breckenridge snow mobile tours they also go by the name of white mountain tours, we read the reviews of good times and although they had good reviews there was quite a lot of people saying the tours were very slow and boring.
We looked at white mountain tours website and found they had a performance tour and a high adventure tour, as we have done quite a bit of snowmobiling we decided to take the high adventure tour as we wanted more extreme riding and faster speeds, we wasn't disappointed, we took the 2 hour tour and from start to finish it was amazing, they give everyone regardless of experience a 10 minute practice on an oval track to practice and get used to the machine, there safety advice and talk about the machines is also second to none.
When the 10 min practice was over, they paired us into the relevant groups, the high adventure tour is kept very small about 2-3 people plus the guide.
We then headed off, i can't tell you how good the scenery and the riding was, the tour has so many different sections, tight bumpy turns through woods, flat out straights which we loved and was able to go speeds over 65mph, and also the wide open valleys and mountain climbs, huge banks and berms,jumps, fresh powder trails the tour really pushed our riding skills and was fast and furious, my wife was a little slower and the only female on our tour but the tour guide was very good and was always checking for her safety and always slowed down if she couldn't keep up which wasn't very often.
we must highly recommend white mountain snow mobile tours, we are so glad we picked them as the riding was simply amazing!!
