What People Are Saying

"Chuck and Mike are awesome! They got us all geared up for a half day snowmobile ride through the beautiful, secluded backcountry in Colorado. The sleds were in great shape, the routes easy to follow and the views were incredible! Was by far the highlight of our recent trip to Colorado! A must do! Would be great for families with older children as well."

"My family and I are on a 10,000 mile cross country trip and we decided to stop in Red Cliff, CO on our way back to Sacramento CA for a little small town relaxation. My 10 year old boy was itching to get out into the wilderness and after several hikes, we decided to switch it up and rent some ATV's. We found Colorado Back country Rentals in RED Cliff, CO. The owners Chuck and Mike of CBCR were so friendly and authentic. They treated my boy and I with such courtesy and respect. They went over all the safety points of the machines and were very thorough with the map of the trails. They also explained in depth what to do if we ran into any problems while out on the trail, which made me feel very comfortable as a Dad.

My boy and i set out for three hours and we had the time of our lives! The machines ran absolutely flawlessly, handling any challenge we put them up against.

I asked my boy at the end, if he had a good time and he responded; "We have been around the entire country these past 6 weeks seeing and doing so many incredible things, but this was by far the best adventure of the trip.

Thank you Chuck and Mike, you guys rock!!"

Sincerely,
Hero Dad

"This company is simple and great. They give you a quick tutorial and then you're free to do whatever you like. If you have any problems they will come to you and fix it. Great rental company. I recommend renting the snowmobiles all day."
