Grand Adventures is the only snowmobile tour that leads you to 12,000 feet atop the Continental Divide. From the summit, you’ll be rewarded with majestic views of the Grand County valley.
Both guided and unguided rentals are available from five great locations, including Winter Park, Fraser, and Grand Lake. The closest to Denver is at the Winter Park Lodge, at Winter Park Resort. Snowmobiles depart from the base of the ski area.
The Trailblazer Trail is the newest departure spot, situated in the Winter Park/Fraser Valley. It features plenty of advanced terrains. Or head north to Grand Lake, a mecca of snowmobiling in Colorado, which features over one hundred miles of trails for the intermediate to the expert driver.
Drivers must be 16+ with a driver’s license in order to operate a snowmobile. However, mini snowmobiles can be rented for kids aged 4 to 12. Kids can ride around a groomed track in Beaver Village in downtown Winter Park.
The Continental Divide Tour visits the Arapaho National Forest with their side by sides. They ride 15 miles over Corona Pass, reaching almost 12,000 ft. You get to drive your own vehicle and follow one of the guides.
The trips include plenty of opportunities for pausing for photos, soaking up the views, and going on a small trek.
