“Who knew that Apline snowmobiling was such fun?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This wasn't the short ride around the farmer's fields that I thought it would be. The sleds were top notch, guides Paint and Smitty taught me well (and bailed me out on occasion!) and I was thoroughly impressed by the entire day including the grilled burgers and brats for lunch .

“Best guided sled tour in Western Canada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

My fiancée and I took the Paradise Mine tour and were blown away by the knowledgeable and friendly staff. The time we got to play around with the sleds in the basin was great, even despite the smaller boundary limits due to avalanche danger (which is comforting to know that they care about the client's safety). Great meal in their clean, warm and cozy cabin with spectacular view as well. The sleds were modern with reverse gears and not patched together used garbage. If you're looking to have an informative, laid back tour whether you're previously experienced or not, do this!

“Epic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

My husband is born in Florida & I wanted to show him a true mountain experience so he could gain appreciation for snow and the beautiful Rockies . We did the day long trip each with our own snowmobile, and all he could could say was that it was Epic!! How cool, never gone 8,000 feet up a mountain, eaten on the top in a cute cabin and had such a true mountain experience. He & I were beginners and did just fine on the all day your. Must try!!!

my wife and I had a fantastic 4/5 hour adventure here recently. Our guide, Johnny , was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Well worth the money, you just gotta do this if your in the Fairmont/Radium area.

“First timer, but not a last timer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

My husband and I came to Canada for some fun winter activities for our anniversary and decided to do a snowmobiling tour. I had ridden on the back of one 32 years ago on our anniversary but had never driven my own. All I can say it...what a blast! I can't believe I waited until I was 53 to drive one. We did the all day tour, and while I was a little worried it would be too long for someone with no prior experience, my worries for for naught. I could have stayed out there longer. And the scenery...I can't even begin to describe how incredibly beautiful it was. I have one regret for the day and that's that I left my second camera battery back at the hotel...and my camera battery died. Thank goodness for cell phone cameras! They take you up to 8000 ft and feed you lunch at what used to be an old blacksmith cabin in what used to be a mining settlement. A cozy fire inside and a filling lunch to fuel you for the free time you get to play in the basin/bowl! The on the way back down you get to stop and see some icefalls...beautiful! What an adrenaline rush the whole day was. The 2+ hour ride to get there from Banff (they provide the shuttle) was totally worth it. Our shuttle driver, John, also ended up being our guide...and he was excellent. So, if you want some excitement...pick up the phone and call Toby Creek Adventures...I promise you, you won't be sorry! Thank you, Toby Creek for such an awesome day!
