I will be going with a group of about six up to Paradise, MI in the UP after Christmas. One of our freinds will most likely need to rent a ride up there. Anyone know of a good place we should go to pick one up for him? Did a web search and didn't find to much.

Thanx.

Is there any Night-life in Paradise?

Or is it just a spot to ride and sleep?

Try not to rent from the Shell gas station in Paradise, I can not remember the name though. The guy who runs the shop is a complete ###, he does rental and repair work on sleds and thinks he is gods gift to snowmobiliers. I stopped in there on a ride last winter looking for a screw for my wifes Hjc helmet, the whole time he was looking he was complaining out loud how people always waste his time with small dollar stuff. I just kept quiet, seeing I needed that screw, some people have no vision, had he been more personable, he would be getting repeat customers like myself. Instead I'll never go back and hopfully no one that reads this will either.

when i stayed in paradise i didnt really look for sled rentals, i know they have them somewhere. but the people there are really cool, i have some Freinds that own the Bed and breakfeast In Raco, they sell gas too. anyways we had some problems with my sleds suspension last year and i went into town looking for some random parts, well i stopped at this place where they would fix up your snowmobile if you were havin problems, well i showed him what i needed and he pointed to a big box of Random snowmobile screws,nuts, and bolts and i found some parts that would work after about a hour, he gave me the parts for free too. Paradise is a nice place to ride. as for the nightlife, i dont think there is one, but i may be wrong.

Sweet, thanx for the help guys. If I can't get my one buddy to loan out his ride to our other friend then a renting it will be. I'm not to worried about the night life cause we don't get too much snow in IN. I think we are going to spend as many hours on the trails as possible. Plus I think I will be the only one of legal age. Glad to hear there are nice people up there.

The Fish and Hunt shop have rentals all over the eastern UP. Their sleds are all new, and they will go anywhere to pick you up if you have a problem. We have rented from them several times.
