Anna was our guide for the two-hour snowmobiling tour earlier this month, and I can not say enough great things about her and our experience. The Beaver Creek / Vail area received 29 inches of snow the weekend we were there, and it was absolutely gorgeous on Battle Mountain! I would highly recommend this tour!! great customer service, great day!!!

I went snow mobiling with nova guides. I had a great experience. They provided snow suits and boots which kept me warm and dry. I was guided through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery you can imagine. The guide (Mark) was very knowledgable and did a great job making sure we were safe and enjoyed our excursion. We were... More

Had a great tour with Peter. Great instruction and it was a lot of fun zipping around and up and down the mountain. They provides snow suits and boots if you need them, but bring your own ski googles or you have to pay extra to rent them.

We have been skiing and snowboarding in Breckenridge for many years and wanted to try some new activities for friends who were non skiers. Nova guides were perfect. Very professional operator with good briefings, clear explanations on rider responsibilities, new or almost new sleds, and great machine instruction. This area is perfect for experienced riders or taking grandma or kids.... More

First time on the bike and we went on a self-guided tour; following the paths around the mountain. The snow was beautiful and the mapped paths led us to some amazing views. The snowmobiles were in great shape and the staff was super friendly. Can't wait to get back and try it again.

Afternoon snowmobile tour with Lucas was great fun! Pickup from our accomodation which was very convenient. An interesting drive to Camp Hail with lots of interesting information and great conversation. He was very patient with us particularly when we weren't very good at using the snowmobiles. The tour was great with plenty of variation of terrain to challenge you on... More

We did the Top of the Rockies tour and it was AMAZING!!! Everyone at Nova Guides went out of their way to make the entire experience fun and unforgettable. They keep the groups small and give you time to get the feel of the machines and practice making turns and stopping (as well as getting up some serious speed). We... More

The guides are professionals and courteous. They slowly build up your confidence driving and insure the safety of the riders is first priority. The mountains are spectacular and our guide Chris Miller was an integral part of discussing the history of the mountain. We traveled across the camp where the 10th mountain division trains and took three trails over a... More
