"This was my first time on a snowmobile, the owners were very friendly and knowledgeable! They walked me through how the sleds work, and gave us great directions on where the scenic spots were. The area where the trails are is beautiful, with lots of great views! The sleds were brand new and ran great! Best day of my 'ski' trip! I'll def be back!"

"My friend and I used CBR yesterday to ride through Vail Pass Recreation Area, what an awesome experience! These guys set us up with amazing sleds and a map of the best area to ride through in the entire state. We rode about 30 miles and parked our machines and took pictures of this virgin backcountry. I cannot say enough great things about CBR, the staff and owner, or the area they are located near! Use this company and you cannot be disappointed! The skis were top of the line, like new Polaris and were incredible! Thank you Colorado Backcountry Rentals!"

"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
