March 2021 Great trip today with Vail Backcountry Tours! The company runs top grade ski doos and their tour guides (including the manager of the yurt,John) deliver a great experience. Shay led our group of 3 adults and 2 teens. She was professional, personable, & most concerned with making our ride enjoyable!

My family was in Vail visiting for a ski trip and we decided to take one day off the skis and hit the backcountry trails on snowmobiles with Vail Backcountry Tours. They are AMAZING!!! We chose them because they made everything super easy from start to finish. They picked us up, got us situated on some brand new machines, provided an AWESOME tour of the slopes and trails across from Vail Mountain and delivered us back home with everyone smiling. Greg was our guide and he is very safe and accommodating to all ability levels, knowledgable of the area you are riding in, a professional group photographer, and one of those guys that if you saw in town after your tour you would feel lucky to buy him a beer to say thanks for a GREAT day! Cannot wait for another group to come visit so we can take them on another snowmobiling adventure with Vail Backcountry Tours!!!!

OH MY GOSH THIS TRIP WAS AMAZING! We've been on a snowmobile trip with this company before but our guide this time was just UNBELIEVABLE!! MARK BOUTIN!! The happiest, friendliest, most knowledgeable and fun guide we've ever had out of all of our Colorado tours!! He just made our families entire experience the best it could be! We went on trails that were magical and nothing like we had seen before! He was extremely safe too and made sure we all were! I pray he works for this company for a very long time so we can go on another adventure with him!! PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT!!! :)

Greg, our guide, was super chill and definitely enjoyed letting us open it up and have fun. He is super safe but also let’s you have some fun. Very knowledgeable about the area and history. We have done many trips in Breck and Park City but this one is hands down our favorite!

We've been on this tour before. It's always a great time and very beautiful. Today was our best one yet. Mark Boutin was our guide and he was awesome. He took the time to talk about different animal tracks we saw and types of wildlife in the mountains. He also showed us different landmarks and told stories about them. He clearly loves what he does and we had fun with him. The snowmobiles are brand new and very comfortable too. This company is by far the best out there.
