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
"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.
"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."Tina B.
"We had a great time renting snowmobiles at Colorado backcountry in Red Cliff. Family of four with two teenagers and it was the best time. The staff was friendly and showed us the area maps and routes. You can rent snowsuits and boots reasonably if you need them. You start on the trail immediately so there is no delay. Well worth the price for a half day. The ride was exciting and fun. The views of the mountains, trees, and snow was wonderful. I highly recommend this if you are near the I-70 resorts and are looking for a half day activity."Chris982
