Who We Are
Colorado Backcountry Rentals is an unguided snowmobile/ATV rental operation in the Vail Pass Recreation Area based in the town of Red Cliff, eight miles from Minturn. Both Red Cliff and Minturn are just minutes from Beaver Creek, Vail and a short drive from the Summit County area of Colorado. We pride ourselves in providing an excellent and friendly snowmobiling/ATV experience.
At CBR, we can accommodate all types of riding abilities by choosing from trail machines or high performance machines. High performance snowmobiles seat one person each. The snowmobiles that can have one or two people on them are more suited to stay on the trail.
ATV's can be single rider or double rider. We have two person or four person Side by Sides.
Many of our guests like to get the side by sides which have bucket seats and seat belts. Because Side by Side's have seat belts so they can be used for young people, and if you bring your own car seat that works with a standard seat belt that can make for a more comfortable ride for young people.
All rentals include helmet and gas. Come to our check-in office, conveniently located at the trail head and just minutes from riding unguided through the back country of the Colorado Rockies!
What People Are Saying
"This was the most amazing experience and least expected. I have snowmobiled before but it is usually in a large field and a limited area or controlled by a guide. This was absolutely breathtaking...the trails were well marked and the surprise at the end was magical. Panoramic views, in the clouds, on top of the world AMAZING!! And they let you find it on your own. No guide, no tour...go at your own pace, explore the area at your leisure, very family friendly. I did not want it to end. Go for the entire day~ 3 hours goes by super fast."Liz L.
"My first unguided ATV experience and it was a fantastic one. Mike and Chuck were thorough with our orientation and were adamant about us having a great time. Brand new 2014 Polaris ATVs were awesome. Trail maps were helpful and accurate. I look forward to the next opportunity to visit and I highly recommend to others."1JRod
"Unreal trip. From start to finish we had the time of our lives. The best trip I have had in the past years. They are super friendly and professional and truly are concerned about doing their all for you. The places you get to ride are a true slice of heaven. If you go to Colorado you must go rent from these guys. I promise it will be one for the record books of your search for fun."Daniel P.
