“A Thrilling Ride if you are Prepared”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

This is our second snowmobiling experience with this operation at North Lake Tahoe. The first time, several years ago, we ran into the same problems noted in the other reviews. My wife dumped her snowmobile right at the beginning; no damage but it held up the group. Half of the group of 10 or so wanted to just go fast and the others were always catching up. I spent half my time airborne; bumps at high speed. It was an interesting tour and the guides were patient. This time we opted for a private tour. They said they really didn't do this but if we showed up early they would accommodate us. We did and we got a private tour. Kevin, our guide, was more than patient and the trip was excellent. Great views and lots of off-road stuff. In summary, you will need goggles, they provide, and a good face mask which they do not provide. I didn't have a good face mask and my face was very cold on the long runs. And if it's cold, bring warm clothes! And use the bathroom before you leave. I would never recommend this activity with a large group of people with mixed skills. But if you've never done it before, it's a kick.

“Awesome guides and loads of fun!”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

We had a great time on our snowmobile ride! The trail was really good, we got to go "off-road" and there is a frozen lake that you can ride laps around. Not to mention spectacular views of the Basin. The guides were amazing! It was my first time to ride and I went really slow and one of the guides stayed with me the whole time and was very encouraging. The company provides really nice helmets, gloves and goggles and the snowmobiles are new and in very good shape. Overall I had a wonderful experience and highly recommend this company!

“Highlight of our trip to Lake Tahoe! Fun and thrilling!”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

We probably called 8 different snowmobile operators and no one was operating due to thin snow cover...no one, that is, except for Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tours! Our snowmobile tour was exhilirating and extremely fun and was the highlight of our trip to Lake Tahoe!

We had our reservations about potential lack of snow, but the tour trails were fantastic with ample snow, particularly as we got higher up! Our guides were great, set a good pace and were extremely patient as we all marveled at the gorgeous scenery.

The best part of the tour was when we went up to the summit and were treated to an amazing view of Lake Tahoe.

The tour company is professionally run with new-looking equipment, a wide assortment of comfortable helmets, snow gear rentals and excellent guides. We managed to score a $10 off coupon, so try to look out for that. This helped us ultimately make the decision to get 2 snowmobiles vs. sharing one. Definitely a great decision! We had so much fun!!!

PARTING THOUGHT: The tour company does not have a bathroom on site, so I would recommend hitting the bathroom before heading out.
