What People Are Saying

"Red Cliff is a really cute small town located in Eagle County. I really enjoyed Backcountry Rentals because we were unguided and got to go at our own pace. Wonderful knowledgeable staff, the snowmobiles ran perfectly. You can rent warmer clothes which was nice even though it was a warm day."


"My friends and I decided to take a day off from snowboarding and rent some sleds for the day. I read the reviews for CBR and decided to go with them. Wow, the reviews are spot on, the machines are really legit and the staff is amazing! Schmitty was so helpful, he covered everything. One of the guys in our group was a little nervous, but after Schmitty's instruction and advice, he had the time of his life. What an incredible experience! Going back again in a few weeks."

It was our first time to rent ATV's. So glad we found CBR. We met Mike and Chuck, the owners of CBR, and you could tell they wanted us to have a great time. They were very thorough in going over the operation and safety of the equipment. They took the time to show us the map and explain the trails. Red Cliff is a beautiful little mountain town and the perfect spot to ATV. We will definitely be going back.
