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
"These guys are awesome! My boyfriend and I recently stayed in Red Cliff and rode snowmobiles with CBR. We were VERY impressed with their staff and their snowmobiles! Normally, check-in is in Minturn, CO, which is the next town over from Red Cliff. However, since we were staying in Red Cliff and would be there already, they were kind enough to let us fill out our paperwork upon our arrival to the snowmobile area in Red Cliff, saving us a trip to Minturn! We decided to ride a full day so after we went over the safety info, the guys took us aside and went over the map with us and gave us helpful tips on which routes to take so that we could come back for lunch and get as many sights in as possible! I was very thankful. The trails followed the map very well so we were able to navigate throughout the day with relative ease. The views are breathtaking! I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. It was perfect from start to finish!"carrielynn2016
"The staff was very friendly and informative. They even picked us up from Keystone and dropped us off when we were done. The snowmobiles were nice and easy to use. The trails were easy to navigate and the terrain was amazing. We made it to the top of Machine Gun Ridge which had amazing views of surrounding mountains. I would recommend Colorado Backcountry Rentals to everyone. We all had a great time."Joe W.
"Beautiful drive out to the rental location, Schmitty was informative and hilarious, nice machines, so many different trails to explore and the most AMA=AZING views. From tree lined trails, running creeks, cliff views, open fields, winding trails and hills to climb. We had such a fun day!"Anglea J.
