Endless meadows stocked with the deepest fluffiest powder. Mile after mile of corduroy-covered groomed trails. Open bowls above tree line that offers unsurpassed views of the Continental Divide. Snowmobiling in Grand County Colorado offers all three options and much more, making it one of the top destinations for snowmobile riders in the country.
Snowmobiling is a great way to get into the backcountry to access some unparalleled views of the Colorado high country. Wildlife viewing is also possible and can be done safely and efficiently from a snowmobile. Snowmobiling is so popular in Grand Lake that the town has earned the rubric “Snowmobile Capital of Colorado”.
Winter Park and the Fraser Valley boasts hundreds of miles of trails, and visitors can either bring their own snowmobiles, or rent one from a snowmobile business operating in the county every winter.
Vacation Inc recommends Grand Adventures for all your snowmobile rental needs. With three great locations to choose from, Grand Adventures has the snowmobile experience for you. Ride the Continental Divide as you never have before. Tours top out at nearly 12,000 feet with views of the entire Winter Park Ski area and the Fraser Valley – perfect for the beginner to intermediate rider and families looking to experience Colorado’s back country on a snowmobile. For history buffs, the tours follow the historic “Moffat” railroad route – the path of the old Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad that trains had to use up until 1927 when the tunnel through the mountains was completed.
Try Grand Adventures’ newest location at Winter Park Mountain Lodge located across from the Winter Park Resort. You will see their snowmobiles arriving and departing from the base of the ski area! For those who want the experience of riding up to the Continental Divide at your own pace, try their two-hour rental.
The Grand Adventures location in Grand Lake, is 1/8th mile from Highway 34 on Main Street in town. Ride from here to over 100 miles of trails for the intermediate to advanced rider.
For all guided and unguided tours, you must be 16 years old to drive and 18 to carry a passenger. Minors must be accompanied by their parents.
