Looking for the best places to snowmobile in Colorado? Look no further! Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert and Colorado resident Jeremy Mercier shares some of his favorite riding spots in the Centennial State right here for you next Colorado snowmobile adventure.
Known more as a skier’s paradise, Vail and the surrounding areas offer plenty of snowmobiling opportunities as well. A likely candidate for early snow. While the “epic pow” doesn’t really start arriving until later in November, it’s always a decent bet to lay down some early-season tracks.
Three words: Rabbit. Ears. Pass. Copious amounts of snow are the norm and last as late as late as early June some seasons. With plenty of opportunity for both trail riding and backcountry boondocking, it’s one of northern Colorado’s must-ride locations.
South of I-70, Silverton and the surrounding area is a great place to base out of for accessing Rio Grande or San Juan National Forests. This snowmobile-friendly town also offers access to trailheads right from town making it easy access to find the pow.
This area can really be considered a paradise for any snowmobiler. There are so many different riding opportunities for all skill and experience levels in Grand Mesa, it’s one of Colorado’s premiere riding locations.
My backyard! For me, there’s no better riding in Colorado. This area offers something for everyone with its technical tree lines, open powdery meadows and steep terrain leading to pristine views overlooking Rocky Mountain National Park. Grand Lake is a great snowmobile-friendly town to base out of with trailhead access right from town.
