We were fortunate to have new snow, but even without, it was a great experience. You got to go through the woods on a snowmobile and then take it on a track and open it up. The hot chocolate and cookies in the yurt were really unique. Our guide, Beau, was excellent. Highly recommend them.

Just did a two hour snowmobile tour with Ryan as our guide. What fun, great ride over open space, trails and racing around a track in an open valley. Wish I could tell you about the view but we did our tour while it was snowing!! Great door to door service, Ryan made sure we were well taken caree of during our ride. BOOK THIS!!!

I wanted to try something different during my stay in Vail. Vail Valley was recommended. I received door to door service. Our guide Gregg allowed us to "try out" our sleds in deep snow. I took the 3 hr lunch tour. Lunch was great, conversation was enjoyable and 3 hrs went by to quickly. You will not be disappointed in the views from the top of the mountain, the food, the sleds, or the guide. If you have the time, it's a must.
