Our Keystone, Colorado Snowmobiles
Choosing the Right Snowmobile for Your Keystone Guided Tour or Rental
There are several factors you’ll want to consider when you book a particular machine for your tour. Read the brief overview and then take a look at the details of each recent model snowmobile. Pay close attention to the combined weight limit if you plan on carrying a passenger. If you’re not sure, or have questions, just give us a call and we’ll help you choose!
Drivers and Passengers
In order to drive a full-sized snowmobile, the driver must have a valid driver’s license or driving learner’s permit. Only adults 18 or over with a valid driver’s license can carry passengers. We have snowmobiles that can carry a driver plus one or two passengers. Small children must ride behind the parent and be able to hold on by themselves (one per snowmobile). Up to two larger children can ride behind on one of our 3-seater snowmobiles if they are able to hold on for the duration of the tour by themselves.
Engine Type and Performance
Some of our rental snowmobiles near Keystone, Colorado have two-stroke engines which deliver a quick throttle response and have improved power-to-weight ratio. This means better performance, but has the drawback of more noise and smoky exhaust. These engines are also pull-start. Our other sleds have four-stroke engines that deliver smoother rides and cleaner, more quiet exhaust with the added convenience of push button starting.
Check the “features” in each snowmobile’s description: some have heated grips and foot warmers. Make your choice based on the kind of experience you want to have and have a great time!
