Hosted at Dean's Den​​​


Do you want to learn correct riding techniques? Are you new to backcountry riding? Are you looking to connect with other riders? Let ‘Er Rip hosts two backcountry snowmobile clinics at Dean’s Den in New Canada, Maine. 


The Let ‘Er Rip clinics were started to have an impact on new riders and riders looking to branch out to new groups while increasing their confidence as a beginner and to be more independent in the backcountry. We welcome men, women, and the younger generation to begin to learn new technical riding skills off trail.

Next Clinics:

February 2-5, 2023, Co-Ed Backcountry Snowmobile Clinic

The clinics offer three full days of riding for riders who are in the beginner/intermediate riding level and is geared to helping you learn techniques and use your snowmobile to your advantage.  Our talented and professional instructors will assist you in becoming a stronger, more confident backcountry rider.  Most importantly, our team is here to keep you safe and having fun!
