ALL-INCLUSIVE PRICING

Every SledHead Ventures vacation package includes the following:

* Full time escort by a licensed "Registered Maine Guide" (Mike) from the time
   you arrive at the lodge, until the morning you depart.
* Hot-cooked hearty breakfasts, including your departure day.
* Snacks and drinks during breaks along the trails.
* Lodging (pillow top mattresses, DISH satellite flatscreens, bathrooms
   with heated tiled floors).  See
Photo Galleries page for photos
   and detailed descriptions.
* Comfortable, reliable, well-equipped snowmobile, including all fuel (no 2-stroke oil is needed since
    these are clean, quiet 4-stroke engines that emit none of that signature 2-stroke blue smoke).
* Outer Clothing- excellent quality and condition: Boots, cold weather bib 
   overalls, heavy jacket, gloves, mittens, and balaklava (hat/hood/scarf
   combo), full-face helmet, electric defog visor.
* Paid-up annual membership in local snowmobile club. (Provides fuel for
   volunteer-driven trail grooming machines, aka "Groomers", that
   provide us with outstanding riding surfaces.)
* Free laundry service.
* Free Hi-Speed Wifi in the lodge, cabins, restaurant and pub.
* Souvenir photos disc or online cloud storage.
* All tips and taxes are included in pricing.



ALL PRICING SHOWN BELOW IS PER PERSON.

Minimum Age for Renters is 21.
Minumum age for Drivers is 16.

Young Rider Policy:
I will consider accepting riders as young as 14.  As much as I love kids, this sport, on these trips, takes commitment and endurance to complete each day's riding.  If your group books with a minimum of 4 people, then I can often agree to adding no outside customers to your days so that I can allow children age 8+ (the rental snowmobile outfitter's limitation) to ride with your private group.  This gives us the itinerary flexibility that is generally needed for kids under 14, so I can then accommodate whatever daily schedule will work for your family.

2017 Discounted Specials: 

The COUPLES' 3-4-5 Plans SAVES 18% or 22%:
Three days of riding and four nights of lodging for five couples, with a private bedroom and bath for each, plus huge shared living, dining, kitchen, and laundry facilities, as well as a covered porch in the

The SINGLES' 3-4-6 Plan SAVES 24%:

Pricing Footnotes:

1.  For single riders weighing more than 250 pounds, there will be a $30 per day up-charge for a larger snowmobile.

2.  Two riders on a double ("2-up") snowmobile may not have a combined weight over 375 pounds.  Exceeding this limit requires that the riders rent single ("1-up") snowmobiles.

3.  Prices shown include everything for your snowmobile touring days except lunches, dinners and adult beverages.  The only specialty clothing items you will need to bring with you are long johns and heavy socks.

4.  Payment Terms:
          a) $1000 down per person at time of reservation- cash or check (made out to
              SledHead Ventures, LLC).
          b) Your snowmobile rental reservation deposit  must be made with a third party
              sled provider when the trip reservation is made with Mike.  Mike will provide
              directions on how to accomplish this via phone with a credit card.  This cost
              is included in costs shown in tables above.  If satisfactory trail conditions
              exist (per Mike's evaluation) two weeks prior to your arrival, then the 3rd party
              provider will process the full credit card charge at that time.  On arrival day
              in Maine, a $1,000 damage deposit per sled will be held on any major credit card.

             ALL RENTERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SLED DAMAGE 
                                     (This is standard in the industry)

          c) Balance of cost (table prices above, less items a & b above) is due 30 days
             after booking- cash or check (made out to SledHead Ventures, LLC).

          d) Once a downpayment is made, if traveler cancels trip for any reason, the
              downpayment may be applied to a future trip with SledHead Ventures for you
              or anyone you designate.  However, a full refund (minus a $50 handling fee, per person)
              will be given if the slot(s) you reserved become filled during this season on
              the same date of your reservation.  The $50 handling fee may be applied to a
              future trip for you or anyone you designate.

         
e) It is not my intention to make money on cancelled reservations, however,
              please realize that cancellations generate some unrefundable costs for me
             due to products and services that are in limited supply, in a remote area.
          f) In the very unlikely event that I have to cancel your trip due to lack of snow,
             I will refund your entire deposit(s).  Additionally, if you incur a monetary      
             penalty from an airline to reschedule your flight for another trip, I will apply
             that amount (up to $150 per person) towards any future trip with SledHead
             Ventures for you or anyone you designate.


Although the sledding trails have historically been open to riding by Christmas in our region of Western Maine, my first regularly scheduled 2017 adventure will not begin until 2 January, when I feel certain that we can count on the trails having excellent conditions.  I am currently booking trips that will conclude as late as 2 April, 2017.
 
Reservations must be made with Mike via email or phone.
 
I do not have the capability for online reservations.
 
 
Feel free to contact Mike with any questions about
any aspect of your trip.
