Officially Open for Winter Adventures this December
It’s almost that time to bundle up, head outside and cruise through the fresh, New England snow. You read that right, Bear Rock Adventures will officially open for the winter season on December 15, 2018! We are ready to embrace the snowy weather and indulge in winter outdoor activities with our guests.
Bear Rock Adventures is a fun place to go in the winter seeing as we accumulate over 150 inches of average snowfall annually and have a brand-new fleet of Polaris snowmobiles ready to glide over the trails. Our snowmobile rentals in New Hampshire include the Polaris Indy 550, Polaris Indy 550 LXT-ES (2-passenger sled) and the Polaris Indy 600. Each of the snowmobiles are equipped with an electric start, hand warmers, reverse capabilities, a windshield and a ResQLink Beacon to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride.
One of the largest New Hampshire tourist attractions is snowmobiling due to the amount of snowfall in the area as well as the incredible trails that are at the guest’s disposal. Our partnership with Polaris Adventures as a certified Outfitter made it a no-brainer to become a year-round adventure business offering a reliable and premium experience no matter the season. Rain, shine, snow or clouds are no match for our adventurous spirit and our guests’ passion for the great outdoors.
Bruce Kirk, Bear Rock Adventures employee for five seasons, says, “Nothing makes my day more than having a customer return at the end of the day and tell me what an awesome route I put together for them.” He is able to suggest custom routes for customers based on information they provide him such as, “we want to get muddy” or “we want a nice, smooth ride.” He is excited for snowmobile guests to experience the beauty of the woods and mountains, up close and personal.
Ready to kick off the first winter season of snowmobiling here in Pittsburg, New Hampshire? Be sure to venture southeast of Pittsburg and check out Dixville Peaks, the highest point in the township of Dixville. The climb up to 3,482 feet in elevation is for adrenaline junkies that seek a steep and challenging ride. This route drops just below the wind turbines with picturesque views of Canada, Vermont and New Hampshire in one glance. Diamond Ride is another route that offers incredible views of the Connecticut Lakes Region. The perfectly groomed, wide trail makes it easy for riders of all skills to travel through the forested summit that open up to expansive views reaching an elevation of 3,230 feet. There are 700+ miles of snowmobile trails available to guests, all you have to do is get out there and let loose on the open snow!
Individual riders, couples and groups are all welcome to adventure with us! We have an advanced reservation system that is able to accommodate larger groups for family vacations, special occasions or just spur-of-the-moment day trips. We provide guided and unguided adventures to guests for 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 24-hours and multi-day excursions. Pricing starts at $135 depending on the sled desired and duration of the trip. Helmets are included in the pricing. Drivers must be 21 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license, but guests that are 18 to 20 years-old with a valid driver’s license can operate their own sled if accompanied by a parent or guardian that is 25 years of age or older. Passengers must be able to touch their feet to the floorboards and able to reach the handholds on the snowmobile.
