Complete Snowmobile Vacation Adventures
SledHead Ventures fifth season offered snowmobiling in only one of a few limited areas, in the eastern U.S., that Mother Nature blessed with good snowmobiling during the winter of 2016. Traditional snowfall areas of New York, New Hampshire, Vermont, and even within our State of Maine, had very little snowfall, and therefore no snowpack to speak of. However, the snowpack on our trails in Western Maine often offered excellent riding during January through March, making it a rewarding journey for our customers traveling from places like North Carolina, Louisiana, and New York. While many New England sledders think of the season ending on 1 April, when typically the use of grooming machines ends for the season due to snowmobile clubs' limited fuel budgets, we often continue to offer very good riding conditions on hundreds of miles of trails, as well as guided trips concentrating on backcountry ungroomed trails (snow depths of 2 to 3 feet), through mid-April when afternoon temperatures can be in the 30's and 40's.
SledHead Ventures provides multi-day escorted snowmobile adventures in the Maine Wilderness with an experienced Maine Guide who will ensure that your entire party has a safe, comfortable, and memorable journey that will give you bragging rights for a very long time.
Our trips are designed for first-time to intermediate-level snowmobilers. From the time that you arrive at our partnered lodge, until you head back to the airport, you will not have to worry about weather, clothing, trail conditions, or navigating the wilderness. You'll enjoy delicious meals and cozy beds. We've got all this, and more, perfected! Your only quandary will be which meal to pick off the menu and what to wash it down with-- just hang on for the ride!
All-inclusive pricing includes: Full-time Maine Guide escort, lodging, custom hot breakfasts, snacks, snowmobile, helmet, gas, all outer clothing, and all tips & taxes. The only additional cost to you will be lunches, suppers, and any indulgences at the lodge’s pub.
If you're looking for a vacation that is outside-the-box...
something you've never done before...
something your friends have never seen before...
something that you'll never forget-
You've just found it!
This is not a relax-on-the-beach, nor sleep-til-noon vacation...
This will be an adventure!
It will put a HUGE smile on your face and just a little ache in your muscles.
You will sleep hard every night. You will eat heartily, but you will not gain weight.
We have excellent trails with reliable snow, lots of interesting sights to sled to, outstanding meal hosts, and a friendly lodge that you will find both relaxing and comforting at the end of the day.
Driving a snowmobile ("Sled") is not difficult. It will only take us a few minutes to teach you everything you need to know to comfortably and safely ride on our huge network of groomed trails. Within 30 minutes you will be so comfortable that you'll be able to sit back, relax, and thoroughly enjoy seeing Mother Nature go by.
Average daily high temperatures in the Kennebec River's headwaters area, in western Maine, are very reasonable: only 22°F in January, 25°F in February and 35°F in March, so don’t worry about bitter cold temperatures and high winds that can be common in the western states. Coupled with dependable temperatures, we have the most reliable snow riding conditions in New England, allowing nearby Jackman, Maine to live up to its boast: "World Class Snowmobiling"!
SledHead Ventures is going to provide you with all the warm outerwear you’ll need- helmet, balaklava, jacket, gloves, mittens, insulated bibs, and boots. Throughout our daily adventures you'll be stopping at plenty of interesting lodges, inns, and taverns to warm up and to enjoy a hot meal.
