What People Are Saying

"This was my first time on a snowmobile, the owners were very friendly and knowledgeable! They walked me through how the sleds work, and gave us great directions on where the scenic spots were. The area where the trails are is beautiful, with lots of great views! The sleds were brand new and ran great! Best day of my 'ski' trip! I'll def be back!"

"We booked a snowmobile trip with CBR over spring break. Chuck was super nice to my wife and I. My 13 and 8 year old loved it. He even took time to help us with points of interest he would recommend on our way to Durango to see family. They provide the gear you need plus maps etc. Vail pass and shrine pass were absolutely beautiful. They are a great business and loved hearing his story. He took time to meet us at the end of our trip as we didn't see him on our way out. Highlight of our trip and will return for more fun. Bring a backpack with water and food!! We did but trying to help out those who may overlook it. Also may be common sense but follow their instruction on staying on trails and well ridden on meadows and pass areas, (there are plenty). We saw some folks stuck way off the trail. Snow is deep and inexperience will get the best of you. Thanks again Chuck and Mike."

"We rented some 2 passenger snowmobiles for a full day. Our 4 yr old and 10 yr old loved it as much as we did! Gorgeous views and a great time all around. Next time we will pack some lunch with and just eat out on the trail, as it's kind of a hassle to go back to town for lunch."
