What People Are Saying

"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."

"My family come in USA for three weeks and we decide for Colorado snow experience in mountainous Rockies. My nephew found Colorado Backcountry somehow and made booking with Mark or Mike? I will tell you faithfully, this company was full of knowledge for safety AND fun! Mr. Kevin was our guide to the most fun my family had! My family was so pleasantly suprised from our trip to Colorado and they keep talking about how much fun they had that day on the mountain with"Mr. Kevin!" Colorado Backcountry is unexpectedly good service and quality! You must see for yourself!"

"My friend and I used CBR yesterday to ride through Vail Pass Recreation Area, what an awesome experience! These guys set us up with amazing sleds and a map of the best area to ride through in the entire state. We rode about 30 miles and parked our machines and took pictures of this virgin backcountry. I cannot say enough great things about CBR, the staff and owner, or the area they are located near! Use this company and you cannot be disappointed! The skis were top of the line, like new Polaris and were incredible! Thank you Colorado Backcountry Rentals!"
