What to Bring on your ATV Adventure

When you are riding in the mountains, you should always keep in mind that the weather can change in an instant. While it may be sunny and 80 degrees at one moment or at your starting location, it can change to snow, rain or hail and below freezing as you change in elevation. Here is our suggested list of what to bring for your ATV ride:

  • Sunglasses or Goggles

    Sunglasses and goggles or some sort of eye protection. Goggles and maps are available for purchase at rental locations or you can pre-order when making a reservation.

  • Rain Gear

    Waterproof and breathable rain gear.

  • Extra Clothing

    Dressing in layers is wise but also remember extra clothing if it turns cold.

  • Sunscreen

    While it may feel cool in the mountains, the UV rays are much more intense at higher elevations and you will burn more quickly.

  • Closed Toe Shoes

    Shoes should have closed toes. Sandals are not recommended.

  • Water and Food

    Take plenty of water and extra food. You should always be prepared for the worst, in case you get stranded or lost.

  • First Aid Kit

    A first aid kit is essential as you may be far from any type of medical care if you were to have an accident.

  • Drivers License

    We’ll need your drivers license for our rentals.

  • Helmet

    Bring your helmet if you have one – otherwise we provide them with all of our rentals.

ATV Rental Insurance

Our rates include insurance that covers each ATV with a $2,800 deductible and each UTV with a $4,200 deductible. Without insurance coverage, replacement costs would total between $6,000 and $20,000. We offer optional tire insurance for $14.95, which covers one tire on one vehicle. Most home owner’s insurance companies offer renter’s insurance – check with your insurance provider before you leave home to see if you have coverage.
