We had a great 3 hour ride today in a snow tundra. Exactly what we were hoping for and my family will have a lasting memory. Rock pirates were great. Snowmobiles are well taken care of, staff was great. Very well satisfied. Highly recomend and will be back.
Walked in early morning and was able to rent without a reservation. The OHV’s were new models with GPS and emergency beacons. The staff were very helpful. It was a great way to see the interior mountains around Silverton! What a fun day!
