"The guys came in and opened up for our afternoon ride. Even though it's in between seasons, the service is top notch. After looking at the choices for atv rental in the area, decided to drive the hour+ from Frisco which was scenic in itself. The views from the trail go from awesome to incredible. Looking forward to our return visit."

"Wow, I had a great time today out with my friends thanks to the help of Colorado Backcountry Rentals. Kevin and Schmitty both helped to teach us how to use the machines, inspect the machines, and provided us with information on the trails. Had a great time and when I return to Colorado I will make sure to have both Kevin and Schmitty help to get us out on the trails! thanks again."

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....
