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
"It was impressive! We had: 1. Access to rent new and high performance snowmobiles 2. Amazing views and trails 3. Chance for off trail riding on soft snow 4. Direction on safe snowmobile usage and map/travel route orientation. 5. Great pricing especially compared to an all day lift ticket, equipment rental, and a $25 per person lunch at a ski area etc... THIS IS A MUST EXPERIENCE YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY. Good for all ages and ability levels. Thank you CBR!"Greg G.
"We had a great time snowmobiling. The snowmobiles ran really well and the staff were so nice, especially Chuck who was incredibly kind and helpful. Definetly one of the highlights of our trip."Lauren K.
Just wanna let anyone know if your thinking about getting a guided snowmobile tour in the backcountry... There's a lot of options but there's only one that's the best.. Gotta go to Red Cliff and ask for Smitty.. They're all great people there but trust me you will have an unforgettable time with Smitty... So take the sleds out then go have fish tacos at Mangos. Cant go wrong with a day like that....Kurt W.
