With so much to see and do here in the Vail Valley it is no wonder that the use of snowmobiles is so popular with outdoor enthusiasts. Cutting down travel time by half, or more, as opposed to cross-country skis or snowshoes a snowmobile can be the best way to see it all!
Guided tours are an excellent way to experience snowmobiling in a controlled and safe atmosphere. Many of these businesses will either take you on terrain that they own or rent or on one of the White River National Forest’s many exciting backcountry trails. You may also decide to embark on a journey on your own with a group of friends or you family. In this case equipment rental and clothing purchases can be made at any number of our local shops and businesses. Make sure you have the proper equipment and clothing when embarking on any trails in the Vail Valley. Please read through our safety guidelinesand regulations for winter recreation and our snowmobile checklist, and don’t forget to have fun!
Whether you are a local or visiting, you may not be aware of all the opportunities awaiting you. Our goal is to provide details about the trails and even a few photos of what you may expect! Our source for many of the specifics of the trails was provided by our local Ranger Stations. Our photos are a collection from various people enjoying these trails, and if you are out enjoying the land and would like to share your photos, please email us. We are putting together an exciting gallery of photos for all to enjoy. Wouldn’t you like to show off your photos to thousands of people?!
In order to present the Vail Valley’s snowmobiling adventures to you, we have two alternatives; you can view the information by area, or by level of expertise. Most people have no idea the incredible variation of views, mountain ranges, lakes, and terrain that are waiting for you. Our journey starts at the top of Vail Pass and continues west through the Town of Vail. Once you reach Minturn, you will find numerous trails in this area and south down Hwy 24 towards Leadville and then west towards Edwards.
Feel free to contact us with any questions. Have Fun!!
