    What to Expect
    Choose between a morning and afternoon tour, then make your way to a central location in Whistler Village. You may also meet the driver at the Fairmont Chateau or the Four Seasons, both close to the base of Blackcomb Mountain.

    Leave the village behind on the 10-minute drive to Cougar Mountain, where you’ll have access to pristine backcountry trails that wind deep into the forest. Your professional guide will lead the way, and can offer tips on snowmobile handling for less-experienced drivers. Ride past the trunks of towering evergreen trees with limbs weighed down by snow, and watch for the wildlife that thrives in the winter forests of British Columbia. Pause to refuel with snacks and drinks before you ride back to the trailhead for the return trip to Whistler.

    Children 12 and under may join the tour free of charge when accompanied by an adult driver.

    I'm not one that enjoys writing poor reviews because ultimately it means I spent lots of money on an excursion and had a poor experience. My family, wife, two teenage sons and myself booked an intermediate level snow mobile tour today. Intermediate because we have done this

    Hi Chris, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent snowmobile tour with The Adventure Group. We really appreciate all feedback we receive and use this information to improve the service and experience we provide. I apologise that your family’s experience did not live up to your expectations of an intermediate tour. Our intermediate tours are designed for riders who either have some snowmobile experience or, if not, ATV or jet-ski, for whom the learning curve might not be quite as steep as for someone with none of this experience (a beginner tour). It does not require extensive backcountry riding experience. I apologise if this was not communicated to you at the time of booking, however we do outline this in our promotional material on our website and brochures. From your description it sounds like your family are much more advanced riders than what this tour is aimed at. Safety is our absolute first priority, speed is never a focus. While the intermediate tour may end up traveling faster than a beginner tour, your guide will set a pace based the group demonstrating throughout the tour they can operate their snowmobiles safely for the current conditions and are following the instructions given during the safety talk at the start of the tour. If you would like to discuss your experience in more detail, please email me directly (travis@tagwhistler.com) – I’d love to hear from you. Thanks, Travis

    Austin took care of my wife, 10, 8 and 6 year old. My son Zane rode on the back of his snowmobile and couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend this activity for families who have young grade school children. They have all the gear you need as well.

    Will did an incredible job as our guide. Great tour, but the kids driving their own small snowmobiles was definitely "over the top!" Our guide Will, took his time in explain all of the details to make sure we all felt comfortable before we started our amazing tour. Thank you

    Took the afternoon tour to Cougar Mountain to let the kids experience sledding and can not recommend it higher! Liam was our guide and he took time explaining how the snowmobile worked, and eased us into it slowly until we picked up the basics and then we were flying! We got to
