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
"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.
"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."Ryan_Rasumussen1
"We had a great time renting snowmobiles at Colorado backcountry in Red Cliff. Family of four with two teenagers and it was the best time. The staff was friendly and showed us the area maps and routes. You can rent snowsuits and boots reasonably if you need them. You start on the trail immediately so there is no delay. Well worth the price for a half day. The ride was exciting and fun. The views of the mountains, trees, and snow was wonderful. I highly recommend this if you are near the I-70 resorts and are looking for a half day activity."Chris982
