“Fun Safe Awesome Experience!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

What an amazing experience! From start to finish Backbone Adventures provided an excellent excursion. Prior to arrival, we were given detailed instructions & a map to the meet up point. We initially reserved 3 ATV's but when we arrived at the location felt a bit apprehensive because we are beginners. Brian & Andy kept it 100% real with us. They explained the trails and the vehicles and how to manuever through the rocky terrain. He also made it clear that trails in the Rockies are much different from other places (Moab is where we had previously been). Very grateful for the heads up! They accomodated us by switching to UTV's so we felt safe. They gave us a great description on how to navigate through the trails and offered assistance if we chose. They encouraged us to check in with them when we were heading over to the other side of the trails--really appreciated that. They also assured us that if we used caution & weren't reckless, things would be a lot more comfortable & enjoyable...great advice! They know what they're talking about and are very experienced. After speaking with them & getting answers to our questions & concerns we headed out and enjoyed a full day of safe, fun atv-ing. This is the place to go!

“Great fun”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We hired a buggy yesterday and had a ball!
It was challenging without getting real scary, just the right amount of adventure for us!
Both the guys, at the office and the trailhead were very friendly and helpful, and made you feel you we're in good hands.
We were left to our own devices (with a good map) and apart from an occasional quad bike, we pretty much had the mountain to ourselves.
The views were spectacular.
So if you fancy a wee adrenalin rush and three hours of laugh out loud fun, then give it a go, you won't be disappointed!

“Awesome Adventure !!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We arrived with great directions from the business; e-mailed to us in advance, what to expect, and what time to arrive. The person who greeted us was friendly and helpful, his main concern was our safety and speedy review of the machine we rented so we could get on our way ASAP!!! We were well prepared for our trip into the back country on our 4-wheel UTV. The trails were challenging, but with the instruction we had before our trip we were confident in the machine and our ability to navigate the terrain. Spent 3 hours on the trail,, with map and guidance from the sff, we had a great time, awesome wilderness adventure, only 3 other machines out that day so only encountered people on the trail twice, but everyone we saw was having a great time. Would highly recommend this adventure, we had never ridden a UTV before, so be prepared to be challenged, but that's exactly what we were looking for!!

“Backbone Adventure Thrills Travelers”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Amazing, that says it all! From the equipment to the views, top notch! Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hours we spent, well worth the money. Andy was so accommodating and allowed us to switch vehicles with no problem at all when my wife decided to take the Bombardier side by side instead of the ATV. With no experience at all she was able to summit Storm Mountain. There were parts that we challenging to say the least, but the vehicle performed brilliantly. I was given Andy's personal KTM 200 and it handled like a dream. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience, we will definitely be back for more.
