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
"The employees are great, they explain the machines and trails well and have plenty of advice to offer for different machine types and skill levels. There are many miles of trails and mountain valleys to explore with beautiful scenery. I rented a high-performance snowmobile for two full days and loved it. Highly recommended!"Adam C.
"My parents, husband and I went to Red Cliff to check these guys out. We were staying in Breckenridge and the drive was scenic and not far at all. They had the best ATV trails I have ever been on (and I have ridden a lot!) and it was an unguided tour which is something very unique. We were able to spend time where we wanted and they provided a great trail map for us to follow. They also had adorable dogs that were there to greet us. We will definitely be back and we look forward to trying out a snowmobile trip in the Winter!"Brandi R.
"Our first snowmobile trip. An unguided tour. Plenty of wide open beautiful trails with great scenery. Great staff! A must do! Best days to go are Saturday and Monday, if you want it to be super smooth. We went on a Sunday and had tons of fun though! Go downstairs afterwards for a great pizza and local beer at Mangos!"ShaneNLori
