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.
NOTE: 2018 Pricing was posted below on 5 Nov 2017 and is a slight increase over 2017 pricing due to a sled rental increase from my third party provider.

2018 Season: 31 Dec 2017 - 30 Mar 2018


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.

Group Discounts:
I will gladly email you reduced pricing quotes for custom group packages.  Pricing will always be less than shown below for groups of 4 or more.  For groups of 2 or 3, pricing may also be less than shown below, depending on selected dates.

My pricing has five variables:
1.  Individual single beds, or couples sharing a bed.
2.  Private or shared bathroom.
3.  Private or shared common areas: living, dining, kitchen, porch.
4.  Length of stay.
5.  Individual snowmobiles, or one shared with your travel partner.

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:
You will make two payments each to two separate businesses: (1) SledHead Ventures LLC, and (2) to my third-party snowmobile provider.
        
           a) Making a reservation with SledHead Ventures LLC requires that a 50% deposit must be made with my 3rd party sled provider within 24 hours of when the SledHead Ventures trip reservation is made with Mike in order to confirm and reserve the snowmobiles with that 3rd party provider.  Mike will email you directions on how to accomplish this via phone with a credit card.  This snowmobile rental cost is included in pricing tables shown above.  
If satisfactory trail conditions exist (per the sled provider's evaluation) two weeks prior to your arrival, then the 3rd party provider will process the remaining 50% credit card charge 48 hours prior to your arrival.  On your arrival day, a $1,000 damage deposit per sled will be held on any major credit card when you pick up your clothing and complete some forms with the 3rd party provider.  Once a deposit is made, any cancellations will be processed in accordance with the 3rd party snowmobile provider's published policy, which will be provided to you with your deposit confirmation email. 

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

         
 b) You will make two payments to SledHead Ventures.  First, a $500 down  payment, per person, at the time of reservation- cash or check (made out to SledHead Ventures, LLC).
          c) Then, the balance of your quote (table prices above, less items a & b above) is due 30 days after booking (but no later than 2 weeks prior to your trip arrival date)- cash or check (made out to SledHead Ventures, LLC).

          d) Once a downpayment is made, if you cancel your trip for any reason, the
downpayment(s) paid directly to SledHead Ventures LLC may be applied to a future trip with SledHead Ventures LLC for you or anyone you designate. However, a full refund (minus a $50 handling fee, per person) may 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 SledHead Ventures LLC 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 LLC 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 2018 adventure will not begin until 31 December 2017, 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 30 March, 2018.
 
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.
