Try Something New

Not into skiing or snowboarding?

Not sure you want to ski or snowboard on this trip? Don’t worry about it! With our Pod Rental Service, you can find new ways to enjoy the snow!


Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the wearer over a larger area so that the person’s foot does not sink completely into the snow.

You can easily enjoy a safe, fun walk right on top of the snow. Snowshoes are great for exploring snow-covered landscapes inaccessible to people in normal hiking boots.


Ride a snowmobile (snow machine) over pristine, spectacular snow-covered hills. We have a variety of opportunities available ranging from going around a track in town, to truly wild courses in the mountains. Contact us about snowmobiling opportunities in Snow Country.

Snurfer Snowboard

Introducing the snowboard without bindings. Snurfer Snowboards are surfboards for the snow! These provide an exciting alternative to snowboards for people who want a thrill going downhill, but don’t want to simply ride a sled.
