Everything about this place is run like a well oiled machine- including, well, the well oiled machines that they rent. I actually got to meet Greg, the owner, and Nathaniel, his son, and they were kind, knowledgeable, and truly interested in making sure everything was right. Not to mention that the restaurant at the lodge is very good. The soup... More

Thank you for all your kind words! I'm glad you had a great experience with Nova Guides. We think it is an added value to be "off the grid" too. It allows families to put down their electronic devices and create lasting memories. Please come back and see us again soon. More

We did a guided snowmobile tour with Nova Guides at their Camp Hale location. I live and work in the Vail Valley and this is the first guided snowmobile tour I took. I want to say that Nova Guides is a top notch, superb operation. From the minute we arrived, to our safety briefing and orientation to our tour--it was... More

A Vail Valley local, I arranged outings for my family who was visiting from NYC for a week. Without a doubt Nova Guides was the highlight. We booked the Top of the Rockies 3 hour tour. Our guide, Bob, was stellar at keeping the adrenaline junkies (me!) and the family-oriented folks equally happy. His enthusiasm for the sport and the... More

Awesome experience, start to finish. Prompt pick-up at our hotel, interesting and engaging tour and history of the area began the minute we boarded the van. All equipment was top notch, clean and well maintained. All instruction was thorough, safety focused, engaging, and friendly. The tour, scenery, trail, and stops were almost too beautiful to describe. Nate was a terrific... More

Our family had a great time. My husband, children 22 and 18 went on our snowmobile tour. We did the half day tour and they provided boots, helmets and suits which we appreciated. The lookout points were breathtaking. Absolutely loved it.

We came to Vail to ski Beaver Creek, visit with friends and enjoy a music festival. A late addition to our plans was a family snowmobiling trip. It was the best time ever. Our driver entertained us with stories and history of the area on our way to the mountain. We were fitted with everything we needed...snow suits, boots, headgear... More

With a group of 9 people, we drove almost 2 hours to get to this place. The overall snowmobiling experience was a blast. The equipment was all new and worked well, and the trails were fun and easy to follow. The only problem I had with this establishment was the complete lack of concern for customer service.
