The snowmobiling is a fun activity when done together with friends and family. Usually the general rule with regard to snowmobiles is that you can carry a maximum of one or two passengers. This is based on the weight limit aspects of the sled which should in no way be exceeded. However, there are a few heavy duty snowmobiles like the Arctic Cat Pantera 7000 that can be used by up to 3 passengers.
Now, if you want to take more passengers with you, passenger sleds can be considered as a good option. With evolving technologies and the introduction of passenger sleds into the market, multi passenger snowmobiling has become popular. It is not a bad idea investing in these passenger sleds. They have the added advantage that they can accommodate more passengers and also plenty of gear. What more can you ask for?
They are available in both open and enclose styles. The open passengers sleds make you exposed to the outside elements. With the enclosed ones you are safe from wind, snow and other outside elements.
They are hefty when considering the price point. Also, the riding experience won’t be up to the mark when compared to the conventional snowmobiles. That is you can’t be one of those aggressive riders but it is a safe and good option to invest in especially for families.
Snowcoach by Equinox is a famous model in the market of passenger sleds. Others like Trailander also offer some models of passenger sleds.
