So just a bit of background before my question. I've been snowmobiling quite a bit for work, hauling gear to remote bush camps. My wife and I are both thinking of getting a couple machines to haul wood, get into the backcountry cabins, and do some exploring. So, I was thinking this opportunity to rent a couple machines would be good to try out few different models. I was thinking the 550 Tundra LT, or Bearcat for the work horse, then somthing to play around on.
Anyway, to my question. My family has come up to see our new baby and my sister wants to go snowmobiling. I know of a good rental place in Girdwood, Alaska Snow Safaris, but I don't know of any good, safe places to take my family in that general direction. I've read a bit on the Willow area and have skied into the Nancy lakes area but that area is up north while the rental company is down south of Anchorage. I figure there are a couple options. Rent in Girdwood with a place highly recommended on this forum, then turn around and head north. Not a huge deal but kind of a waste of time. Or find a place down south to ride. I'd be fine with the Kenai and such. Or find a rental place up north and go up north. Sure would be nice to find a good, safe place to ride and in the same general direction of the rental company. Anyway, we don't have much time as we pretty much have to go Monday, the 8th or my sister leaves. Sure would be nice to get them someplace scenic, enjoyable, and above all else, safe place to ride. Thanks in advance for the help.
