Rent a snowmobile in Western New York

Share this

Have you ever wanted to ride a snowmobile for hours just for a new experience in the wilderness but did not want to think about the costs involved with buying a snowmobile? For the 2011-2012 Winter Snowmobile Season in Western New York, you can rent NEW snowmobiles and/or get a guided tour of snowmobile trails in Allegany State Park, Cattaraugus County and Chautauqua County at Chautauqua Lake Snowmobiles (Call them at 716-581-LAKE).

Snowmobile Rentals

They are a new business, in our neighbor to the West, Chautauqua County, with brand new 2012 Polaris snowmobiles that are ready for Mother Nature's Winter Wrath in Western New York. Did I just make a tongue twister? They have 8 2012 snowmobiles available for rent with several 2 seaters and the snowmobile rental fees range from $150 for 2 hours to $1,250 for 7 days.

Snowmobile Tours

Chautauqua Lake Snowmobiles offers several specialized snowmobile tours for the various types of snowmobilers (new, experienced, family). Tours are available at 2, 4 and 8 hours in length and cost from $75-$150 and there is 15% off snowmobile rental with guide service. You can suggest the starting point and they'll create a custom tour from that.

Are you unfamiliar with our South Western New York snowmobile trails or don't want to worry about where you are going or unfamiliar with snowmobiling in general then ask about their guided snowmobile tours.

Seneca Allegany Casino: New trail from Allegany State Park ends at the Casino and makes a great start for a tour of Allegany State Park.
