For those who enjoy adventure!: This experience is for those who enjoy an adventure! While we work extra hard to make your experience seamless, we cannot guarantee that you won't have to do a little to pull this off. In winter, especially, fires need to be maintained for warmth as there is no thermostat to set for forced heat.
If rented, the Rhino will get you up the hill, but we cannot guarantee the quality, nor quantity of the snow, which may challenge the Rhino. You may need to be prepared to hike/ski in. Also, the Rhino is an open air vehicle. Be prepared with layers suitable to the current conditions.
The electricity comes from solar panels, and those may need to be cleared during your stay in order for the system to work.
If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Katherine.
