Tour Details

This tour is 3.5 hours long and departs at 9 am and again at 1 pm.  Our tours meet at our base in Willow and then head up the mountain.  There is a free shuttle from our base to where we start our tours on the mountain.  There is plenty of parking at both locations including RVs and our Hatcher Pass location is approved for rental vehicles if you would rather drive up there yourself.  Please arrive 30 minutes before the tour starts to check-in.  If you are also planning on joining us for lunch please arrive at noon at our Willow base.

This tour is suitable for drivers of all ability levels and experiences.  Don’t worry, if you’re new to ATVs, we’ll work with you to build your skills as we progress throughout the tour.  Choose from a single-rider “ATV”, a multi-passenger “UTV” or “Side by Side” depending on your group size and what type of adventure you want.  Drivers must be 18 years or older with a driver’s license to drive either machine.  Children are allowed to ride in a UTV but they must be able to properly wear a seat belt sitting up or with a booster seat. The ATV is a single-rider machine.  UTVs are priced for up to 2, 4, or 6 passengers.
