Testimonial: "We come from Simi Valley, CA and my husband and I bring our two children (20 and 14 yrs old) to DJ's Snowmobile Adventures every Mammoth trip. We always do a self guided tour on their beautifully groomed trails, no crowds, and it's exciting and very peacful at the same time. We have never had a bad experience and the people who work there are awesome! Thanks guys for making our trip complete!" Sincerely, Sherry D.
Testimonial: "First time I went with a friend and we followed your self guided trail. The trail was very clear and the photo oops were amazing. Since then we have taken serval groups of friends and done guided trips. FUN!!! It is great to have a guide because they know where the best snow is and where it is safe to go a little faster. One year that had limit snow we were taken under 395 and into the trees. Other years we have gone also up to Bald Mountain...wow talk about photo ops!! All your guides have been great and everyone we have brought to visit you guys have left we "amazing day!" stories. Looking forward to a 2012/2013 ride!" C. Bovich
