Is an invitation needed to participate in the demo rides?

Invitations are not necessary to participate in a Yamaha Power Tour Demo Ride. All interested parties are welcome. You will require a valid Driver's License or Snow Vehicle Operator's License to demo ride one of our sleds. We suggest you see schedule on this site or contact your supporting dealer for exact times.

 

My friend rides a competitor's product... Can they still attend?

The Yamaha Power Tour Demo Rides are an opportunity for Yamaha riders, and owners of other equipment to come and find out for themselves what all the talk is about. All responsible SM enthusiasts are welcome.

 

Can my 8 year old daughter ride with me?

Certainly but any passengers under the age of 18 must:

  • Be accompanied by their parent
  • Have proper fitting apparel
  • Have a separate waiver signed (by a parent). Sorry written permission from an absent parent is not acceptable
  • Be comfortable and not cause any hazard to others on the ride
  • Ride as a passenger only on a machine properly equipped to do so (2-up sled only)

 

I've been sledding for a long time, but just got my license... Can I still participate?

You are certainly welcome to attend our Power Tour Demo Days, and enjoy the day's activities. You require a valid Driver's License or Snow Vehicle Operator's License to participate in any demo ride. Some machines may not be suitable for a novice operator in a group ride. The staff will assist you with proper selection of a suitable sled.

 

What if it the weather is not appropriate for a good ride (rain, storm, etc)?

On behalf of Mother Nature, we are sorry for any inconvenience, but all activities are subject to change or cancellation dependant on the weather. Please check with your supporting dealer the day prior to confirm that the demo rides are still being conducted.

 

Is there a rain date?

Sorry. Because of our continuing schedule and other obligations we will not be able to reschedule. But check with staff and your local dealers, there are always opportunities for you to participate in other activities at the local dealer level.

 

I believe helmets, etc hinder my ability to control my sled. Do I have to wear full gear?

Yamaha promotes the joys of life and the free—spirited thrill and experience that is snowmobiling in Canada. And that's why it's important for all of us to do our part as responsible SM operators. We will ask that you help us set an example to others in attendance and the spectators watching our day's events.

We ask that you:

  • Wear a sturdy jacket or vest
  • Gloves
  • Boots
  • A Tek Vest
  • DOT-Approved Helmet (or European equivalent; ECE, BCE, BSI)
