Frequently Asked Questions

 

Am I going to be riding in a sleigh or a wagon?

 

Sleighs require a base of 6 inches of packed snow.  We are constantly evaluating our trail conditions.   If there is any way we can get you in a sleigh, that is always our first option.  If conditions are not right for a sleigh, we will substitute a wagon.

 

Do I have to pay when I make the reservation?

All rides must be paid in full at the time the reservation is taken.  Payment is taken over the phone and a confirmation email will be sent.

Should I tip my driver?

 

Sleigh Rides are considered a service, however, tips are always appreciated but never expected.

What time does my Sleigh Ride start?

When making a sleigh ride reservation please remember that the time you book is the time the ride leaves.  Always arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time to check in.  For private bookings, if you arrive after your scheduled start time, you will be given a ride equal to the time left on your reservation and no discount will be given.  For public bookings, if you arrive after your scheduled start time, you will not be able to participate unless there is room on one of the following time slots.

We ask for you to arrive 15 minutes prior to your ride, your ride will be 30 minutes and you will have 30 minutes at the bonfire.

 

Due to Covid-19 we have had to make some adjustments to our 2020/2021 Sleigh Rides. We will be adhering to the recommendations of the State of New Hampshire and the CDC.  

Once you arrive we will ask you to wait in your vehicle until your scheduled time. You will then be dropped off at our bonfire to limit the interactions of groups.  You will have 30 minutes of private bonfire time at the end of your ride to warm up.
