Grand Adventures has the only 12,000-foot snowmobile game in town when it comes to conquering the Continental Divide. You can truly see for miles from up there, surveying Winter Park Resort and Fraser Valley below.
The company offers guests five locations from which to choose, all with the added convenience of departing right from the base; no further travel to the trailhead required. The Winter Park Hotel near the ski area is the point of departure closest to Denver.

For the experienced riders desiring unguided access to the beauty, the Beaver Village Office location on Highway 40 in the town of Winter Park provides two-hour, four-hour, and full day rentals. The company’s fleet includes “the latest in mountain performance and luxurious touring sleds.” Instructions on machine operation, map orientation, and safety tips are provided before they set your group free to tear it up.
