Colorado’s Best Snowmobiling!
This winter be sure to add a snowmobile adventure to your outdoor plans!
As a fan of anything motorized, riding a snowmobile is one of the things I've got to get done this winter. Over the last 20 years of my radio career, I've not lived anyplace where snowmobiling was a thing. Missouri, Arkansas, and Kansas don't get enough snow. Living here now, lucky me, Colorado has some of the best snowmobiling in the country. After doing some looking around online these look to be Colorado's best.
Vail Pass- When I drive back home during the winter months there is always a lot of traffic here. On most winter weekends the parking lot is overflowing with snowmobilers. The possibilities appear limitless at this legendary snowmobiling location. Skiers and snowboarders alike flock to Vail Pass Recreation Area for its 55,000 acres of wilderness and 119 miles of trails.
Marshall Pass- Just off Highway 50 just south of Salida, snowmobilers can ride miles of trails in Marshall Pass atop the Continental Divide at over 11,000 feet. Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort is ground zero for this thrilling Colorado adventure.
Grand Lake- It appears most believe Colorado's best snowmobiling spot is Grand Lake. The self-proclaimed "snowmobile capital of Colorado" offers 300 miles of snowmobiling trails, including 150 miles of groomed trails. Located next door to the Rocky Mountain National Park it's a cool place to explore too while you're there.
The closest place for some snowmobiling fun is the Grand Mesa. Less than an hour from Grand Junction the Grand Mesa has over 800 square miles of riding. Trails of all skill levels are here from the easy to the advanced.
Don't own a snowmobile? No problem. All of these locations have several rental shops around, including some that allow riders to take unguided trips.
