It’s a beautiful time to be enjoying the snow in Colorado and here along the Vail Valley! March means sunshine and plenty big storms around here.
Getting ready for a Colorado snowmobile adventure? Not sure what to bring? We’ve got you covered. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for a memorable snowmobile tour.
Starting from the toes and moving up, you’ll want a decent pair of winter boots. Don’t have a solid snow boot? No worries! We provide them here at Sage. They are extremely warm and perfect for riding.
Next, you’ll want to bring your own ski apparel. Dress just like you were getting ready to go skiing – layer long underwear and your ski pants on bottom. On top, bring your ski jacket and appropriate layering underneath. Depending on the current weather conditions, you may want to layer a puffy underneath the ski jacket, or perhaps a lighter fleece along with a long underwear top.
We provide all riders with a DOT approved snowmobile helmet. Don’t bring your ski helmet, but do bring a neck gaiter or full-face balaclava to keep your face warm. Additionally, bring your ski goggles. We rent goggles if needed, but you’ll be more comfortable in your own.
Finally, bring a warm pair of ski gloves. Our new, top-of-the-line of Ski-Doo snowmobiles do have hand warmers on the grips. But you’ll still need gloves for your ride.
