My boyfriend and I had a great time snowmobiling in late November! Brad and Schmitty were awesome hosts and explained the trails and snowmobiles great before our adventure. We can’t wait to come back again for more snow adventures or ATV riding in the summer!

We originally booked with Mike- If I remember is a partner in the business with Chuck. Not sure who you dealt with but I would deal with one of those two if your uncomfortable.

Vail is only 9 miles or so from CBS located in Red Cliff CO. You should easily be able to do a 9 - 12 am ride and head back to catch an evening plane from Vail.
