Snowmobiling Around Vail & Red Cliff Park

The White River National Forest and the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area includes trails for all levels of riders from novices to pros. Some trails are more scenic than others, but each trail has plenty of scenic views as well as rugged terrain for those who desire more challenge in their snowmobiling experience. This area covers 55,000 acres and offers over 120 miles of motorized and non-motorized trails.

Taking a snowmobile into the pine forests is a unique way to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains. This area has high elevation and great views, and offers some of the most spectacular snowmobiling in Colorado.

Please note: these trails are for multi-use so follow the designated trail signs and always watch for wildlife.
