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
"We had a great time snowmobiling. The snowmobiles ran really well and the staff were so nice, especially Chuck who was incredibly kind and helpful. Definetly one of the highlights of our trip."Lauren K.
"There were amazing, breathtaking views and everyone was so helpful and friendly. I suggest everyone come to Colorado Backcountry Rentals if you're in the state! Schmitty was the best person around! And took some sweet photos at the top of the mountain. Truly unforgettable!"indygreg
"Your choice, to cruise or to rip. They give you the choice of the machine you will be riding for the day or half day. Either a cruiser or a high performance rocket. They give you the safety tour and show you how to use the machine. They give you a map and an overview of the possible terrain you can cover. Then they cut you loose and tell you to have fun. Then you choose how you want the day to unfold. I chose the 600cc Polaris. I recommend paying the extra for the better machines. You won't be disappointed!"Donald D.
