We booked a 2 hour ATV experience here. It's about 45 minutes from Vail, located on the historic WWII training camp for the 10th Mountain Division, Camp Hale. The camp trained soldiers for winter combat, and closed after the war. Nova uses the extensive trail system for ATVs in summer and Snowmobiles in winter. We rented a side by side... More

A great jeep tour of Camp Hale. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, our guide stopped and got us rain gear and the adventure continued!! My out of town guests had a blast seeing the wildflowers and looking for wildlife.

I booked a guided tour with Chris Miller because I heard he was the best guide at Nova and I wasn't disappointed. He asked what kind of tour we wanted to do and I told him we wanted to see some cool scenic views but mainly wanted to go fast and have as much fun as possible. He took some... More

We took a private tour with Chris. Two kids ages 8,10 rode with mom and dad and Chris drive his own can-am. We stopped at Machine Gun Ridge where we got some breathtaking views and a brief history lesson. Chris asked us our adventure level and when we said high, he let it rip. We flew up hills, through puddles,... More

The views were fantastic, the ATV's were a blast to drive, and the staff were absolutely top-notch. Stan and Todd were out guides and they did a great job managing our varied group. We had young drivers seek a major rush all the way to a 78 year old riding along. The guides catered to everyone's wants and needs. Todd... More

This was a great ATV tour of the area. Dave was a great guide and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He emphasized safety but yet we had plenty of excitement and learned a lot about the area we were going through. Great service for the whole outfit.

Chris picked us up from our hotel in Vail and he was on time. He was very pleasant from the start. My 4 kids (6,4,4, and 2) were very exited. Chris was very knowledgeable of the area and he gave us a lot of details on the animals, the history of the area and informations about the mountains as well... More

Recently rafted with Tall Paul - great instructor and I've rafted these rapids several times in the past and rafted many other rivers in Colorado. Paul and the other guide (Bob?) provide informative info on Colorado history for out-of-state visitors. Nice surprise to see water, watermelon and snack bars at the end of the trip!
