What People Are Saying

"Mary and I wanted to thank you again for a great time. Our day with you will always be memorable and we look forward to next year."

"We booked a snowmobile trip with CBR over spring break. Chuck was super nice to my wife and I. My 13 and 8 year old loved it. He even took time to help us with points of interest he would recommend on our way to Durango to see family. They provide the gear you need plus maps etc. Vail pass and shrine pass were absolutely beautiful. They are a great business and loved hearing his story. He took time to meet us at the end of our trip as we didn't see him on our way out. Highlight of our trip and will return for more fun. Bring a backpack with water and food!! We did but trying to help out those who may overlook it. Also may be common sense but follow their instruction on staying on trails and well ridden on meadows and pass areas, (there are plenty). We saw some folks stuck way off the trail. Snow is deep and inexperience will get the best of you. Thanks again Chuck and Mike."

"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!"

"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."
