Default Where to go snowmobiling?

I want to take a couple days off over the holidays and go snowmobiling. Hopefully not more than 8 or 10 hours away.

I'll need to rent a machine and hopefully find some decent snow.

So far, I see Old Forge NY. Where else should I look?

Old Forge is the absolute best Ron. The trail system is second to none in this area and the Bars and Restuarants are great. It snows there almost every day.

So if I rent for the day, we can take the machine to a resteraunt for lunch?

Can you tell this will be my first ride? Can two people go on one machine? Or do we need two for my wife and I?

Yes,in Old Forge you can go everywhere by sled,lots
of bars & resturants on the trail system. Nice ride
to Big Moose lake,great resturant & bar out there
(Big Moose Inn). Rent 2 sleds, It's not much fun for
the rider sitting on the back. Quebec is awsome
but it's a haul. Have fun & be safe!

My wife wants to be a sled B*tch, so it's a two seater for me. We'll just stay on the trails.

Any interesting trails like up mountains or is it all fairly level terrain?

In Old Forge its all backwoods & hilly terrain, You
can go thru Inlet Flats and ride all the way to
Blue Mtn Lake. I think you will really like it there.
I know I was very impressed the first time I went.
Its in the Adirondaks. Very senic. Old Forge is
on the chain of lakes, 1st lake thru 7th I think.

I have heard that the upper penisula of Michigan is pretty nice. Not sure how much snow they have though.
