Inclusions: Snowmobile tour pricing includes transfers from our office in Mt. Crested Butte to and from trailhead (15 minutes each way), orientation to snowmobile operation and safety information, guided snowmobiling, fuel & oil, and friendly, patient guide services throughout the entire trip. (Guide gratuities are not included in tour price). A helmet is also included in the pricing and is required. Snow boots and snowsuits available for rent for $5.00 each. Bring your own gloves and sunglasses.

Check In: Check-in is at our winter tour office located at the base of the Crested Butte Mountain Resort Ski Area in Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado. We are located slope-side, up-hill from the Adventure Park (see map). Check in time is 30 minutes prior to scheduled tour departure. Tours leave as scheduled. Snowmobiles will be released to stand-by’s 15 minutes prior to departure. Once clients have signed a liability release form and fully suited up, guest will be transported from our Mt. Crested Butte tour office to the snowmobile trailhead (15 minute transfer).

Orientation: At the snowmobile trailhead, we will provide a 15-minute safety briefing and orientation to snowmobiling. Topics covered will be proper operation of the snowmobile, general safety information, what to expect while on the tour route, procedures for possible wildlife encounters, and information on proper snowmobile riding techniques.

Physical Limitations: It is not necessary that clients have previous snowmobiling experience prior to participating in one of our tours. Drivers need to be prepared to heed the advice of their guide and use their body to be actively involved with the steering and driving of the snowmobile for proper operation. Please note that the maximum amount of weight a double-rider snowmobile can accommodate is a total of 350 pounds for both participants. If the clients combined weight is over 350 pounds, we require they each ride single.

Liability Waiver: Each customer must read and sign a liability waiver damage agreement, referred to as the Rental Agreement Release and Indemnity for Snowmobiling Activities. A parent must sign for all minors (under 18 years old) who want to operate a snowmobile. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Minors: Minors accompanied by a guardian must have a waiver signed by a parent. 

Driver Age: In order to operate a snowmobile, drivers must have a valid driver's license with their picture on it and be at least 16 years old. Sixteen and seventeen year-old drivers are not allowed to carry a passenger under any circumstances. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Passengers: Passengers must ride with an adult (18 years old or older).

Maximum Riders per Snowmobile: Maximum of two guests may ride together on one snowmobile, regardless of age or size.

Damages: All customers are responsible for damages to the equipment they rent. Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) may be available to limit liability. Inquire when checking in. Also, customers will be responsible for any cost incurred in the retrieval of snowmobiles which are left on the trail for "non-mechanical" reasons (i.e. customer who become involved in accidents rendering their snowmobile inoperable, etc).

Remember that the trails in our National Forest are multi-user friendly. So, show respect and look out for others.

We look forward to providing a memorable vacation experience for your party. Please call our office at (800) 383-1974 or email for additional information or clarification. Thank you!
