Snowmobile season begins December 15

It’s the holiday season, and you know what that means: List-making and good intentions followed by procrastination, rushed shopping, and—gasp!—the dreaded backorder or out-of-stock notification. Do you know what’s never on backorder? Experiences.

This holiday, take the anxiety out of the season and embrace the spirit of “Jingle Bear Rock” with the incredible outdoor adventures waiting in Northern New Hampshire’s Great North Woods at Bear Rock Adventures. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, a newbie, or looking to surprise and outfit a friend experiencing snowmobiling for the first time, opportunities abound this winter for people of all levels. Thousands of miles of groomed trails, incredible lodging experiences, an updated fleet of Polaris snowmobiles, and amazing deals and discounts truly make it the season to “Jingle Bear Rock” the outdoors.

Experience the Great North Woods on Snowmobiles

Snowmobile rentals begin December 15! This season, Bear Rock Adventures is excited to feature an upgraded snowmobile fleet with the 2022 Polaris snowmobiles. With both single and double seaters, we are excited to offer the latest machines to our guests.

Based on last year’s popular demand, we have also upgraded our fleet size to fifty snowmobiles. All feature light, rigid aluminum, and carbon fiber chassis designed to deliver every bit of power you’ll need to cut through the snow thanks to the tried-and-true 650 Patriot Engine.

The machines also pack in some incredible technology to enhance the outdoor experience. Built around the rider’s comfort and safety, machines include the Ride Command 7S Display (which features vehicle-to-vehicle tracking), SmartWarmers heated grips (a GAME-CHANGER for your fingers) and all-new left-hand controls.

Sights to View in the Great North Woods

The Great North Woods region is packed with scenic views and interesting sights to soak in. Here are just a few new suggestions for the season:

  • Trail 134 to Dixville Peaks: Incredible views of towering wind turbines in the snow.
  • Trail 144 to Diamond Ridge: Breathtaking overlook views of First Connecticut Lake.
  • Corridor 21: Take this to the Grand View Snack Shack for breathtaking views.
  • Trail 127: Follow the trail up over Sugarhill for amazing views of the valley below—and make sure to stop by the Swift Diamond Riders Warming Hut.

While You’re Here, Get the Gear

The Outdoor Adventure Store has everything you need for comfortable winter exploration, and it all starts with appropriately layering gear.

Snowmobile layering is an essential part of not just looking great, but also keeping warm and safe while you’re out on the snow.

Here’s what you need to know from our seasoned snowmobile pros:

Base Layer: Wicking material like synthetics or merino wool help regulate moisture and temperature.

Mid Layer 1: Fleece comes in handy to maintain core temperatures.

Mid Layer 2: This extra layer gives you bonus insulation—best to stick with synthetic down or wind-resistant fleece.

Outer Layer: Make it weatherproof and breathable so you don’t get too hot.

The Bear Rock Outdoor Adventure Store can outfit you with every layer you need, featuring top brands like Klim, 509, Terra Mar, Kari Traa, Minus 33 and Tasc. This season, from November 19 to December 19, 2021, for every $100 spent on retail or gift certificates in-store will get a $20 gift certificate. The more you spend, the more you can gift!
