Considering snowmobile rentals for a day on the trails? Awesome idea! Sure, we’re a recreational rentals provider, but who better to tell you how to enjoy all that Minnesota offers when it comes to wintertime fun? Snowmobiles are awesome for an adrenaline rush; They allow you to explore off road and feel the ground beneath you in a totally different way. Combine that with amazing speed, maneuverability, and the chance to access Minnesota’s best state parks and remote gems, and the day trip practically plans itself!
As the Midwest’s go-to rental company, we strive to make it simple and convenient to rent a snowmobile. Our friendly team and large fleet provide everything you and your riding buddies need for an amazing day in the powder. Yes, even the safety equipment! We also offer memberships. Pay a flat amount, and you can potentially save on your rentals later. If your rental with us is just a one-time thing though, don’t fret! You’ll still be treated as any other customer – that is, with all due respect!
Speaking of respect, we’ve come to our first tip! When you rent from our fleet, please treat our snowmobiles with care. The vehicle may not be yours, but you are paying for your time with it. How much would it suck for your snowmobile rental to fail before your adventure even begins, because you damaged the machine on the trailer ride there? Treating rental vehicles with respect ensures not only that you’ll have a good time, but that the next rider gets to have just as much fun. It allows our team at Fractional Toys to provide the Coon Rapids and Oakdale areas with phenomenal recreational rentals for years to come!
Treating your snowmobile with respect is also a matter of safety, and we always ask our customers to be safe! A respected snowmobile is a working snowmobile is a safe snowmobile – one that can tackle snowy terrain. Read on to learn what to do, what not to do, and how to make sure you and your snowmobile rental come back to Fractional Toys in good condition.
Stick to Your Experience Level
Whether you’re renting an ATV, boat, side by side, or snowmobile, it’s important to know your own limits and stick to routes that match your experience level. While all of our rentals are easy to drive and kept in tip-top condition, you should never be reckless with a vehicle that’s new to you in what’s possibly new territory. Don’t push yourself – focus on enjoying the ride, sights, and memories instead!
Stay on Marked Snowmobile Trails
Snowmobiles are tough. That shiny exterior isn’t just for show! But even the most well-maintained snowmobile isn’t invincible and can be subject to damage if it hits something at a high enough velocity. A small tree or shrub covered by snow can do more damage than you know!
Some trails that are suitable for pedestrians are not suitable for snowmobiles, and vice versa. While we understand that you want to make the most of your rental fee and see absolutely every inch of the park you’re attending, always stick to designated snowmobile trails!
Don’t Pull Sleds Behind Your Snowmobile
We are parents too, we get it! Your kid has a sled and they’re so excited to go inhumanly fast on it. Please, don’t use your snowmobile to haul children's sleds! These machines aren’t built for that. Your passengers and sled are both put at risk – it’s just not worth it!
Avoid Frozen Waters
Don’t play in the water! If the ice isn’t thick enough, your snowmobile could fall through. On an open (frozen) lake, there’s also the potential for collision from all sides, as other snowmobilers might have had the same idea as you and chosen to cross. Whenever possible, stick to designated snowmobile trails, where it’s rare for other riders to come from unpredictable directions.
