Equipment Training & Boat Demos

Equipment Training and Boat Demostraining-and-demos-1

Training is a critical component of the RedLine Experience. Understanding how to operate the equipment safely and confidently is vital to having FUN! At RedLine, we strive to provide the best training possible on any and all equipment prior to your trip.

Boat Demos

Boat demos are required before any Member can check out a boat. The demo must be specific to the type of boat the Member is reserving and using. Demos will be performed at the lake by a RedLine customer service representative.

Upon arriving at the lake, RedLine will demonstrate how to properly put the boat in the water, boat ramp etiquette, how to operate all the functions within the boat, how to re-dock the boat, and how to put the boat back on the trailer.

Boat demos usually take 45 minutes to an hour - please plan accordingly.

Personal Watercraft Training

As required by the State of Idaho, all RedLine Members, registered guests, or anyone operating  a PWC while in the possession of a Member, must watch the required PWC video, pass a two page test and carry a PWC Certification card. The eight minute video can be viewed in the office. The test and certification card will be issued immediately by RedLine staff.

Snowmobile Training

All Members wishing to reserve and use snowmobiles must complete an Avalanche Awareness course taught by Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation. This course covers how to identify and avoid avalanches and how to identify safe areas to ride.

Additional snowmobile training will occur at the time of checkout. Basic functions, general safety, and how to properly change a belt are all covered during this time.

RedLine is ready and willing to provide additional instruction on the mountain for Members who are new to snowmobiling or would just like a refresher. These will be scheduled in advance through the RedLine office.

Epic Wake Boat Set Up


How To Set Up Wakeboats For Surfing, Wakeboarding, Skiing, and more!

Epic Wake Boats possess the largest stock ballast tanks in the industry – offering a functional and dynamic boat for several applications. Surfing, wakeboarding, skiing and tubing can all be performed at a high level behind RedLine’s competition wake boats.

Surfing is one of the hottest new recreational activities in the country. Epic Wake Boats throw one of the steepest surf wakes you’ll find. In order to get the perfect surf, you have to understand how to operate the ballast system and wake plate. First, identify which foot the rider prefers to ride with forward (closest to the boat when in the water) – then adjust the boats settings accordingly:

For “Goofy” riders (right foot forward) – Fill the right tank full, front tank full, wake plate up, speed 10.8 – 11.2 MPH. In test drives, we’ve found 10.9 to be the optimal speed at Lucky Peak.

For “Regular” riders (left foot forward) – Fill the left tank full, front tank full, wake plate up, speed 10.8 -11.2 MPH. In test drives, we’ve found 10.9 to be the optimal speed at Lucky Peak.
