What You'll Get
Traveling atop snow and ice is slow going unless you're riding a snowmobile or lying atop a shipment of frozen peas in a railcar. Traverse wintry terrain easily with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a four-hour snowmobile outing from Boats and Beyond Rentals in Nisswa (a $159 value). Rentals are available Monday–Thursday or on Sunday for an additional $25 fee.
Set amid the north-woods pines of the Brainerd Lakes area, Boats and Beyond Rentals places recreational trailblazers behind the handlebars of electric-start Polaris snowmobiles. Machines chew snow through the Paul Bunyan Trail's network of more than 100 groomed miles as riders hunt down local eateries, bewilder drive-thru attendants, and fuel up at rest stops. Snowmobilers can take the reins right outside the rental office or load the sled into a trailer so they may rev the heated handgrips along their favorite trail.
