Trailer Yourself

Summit ATR’s Trailer Yourself option allows riders to haul our machines to nearby mountain trail systems of their choosing. We’ll help you load up snowmobile or side by side rentals and get you on the trails in no time. Our well-maintained, latest-model machines will take you to wild places where you may only see a handful of people all day, but you’ll be surrounded by beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife.
