Yes, we know the fall season has just begun but it’s hard not to think about winter when the Christmas decorations are already going up in our neighborhood grocery store (But what about Halloween? Or Thanksgiving?). So here we are, before the first flakes fall, thinking about playing (and not driving) in that fluffy white stuff. This year, instead of hibernating at the house, consider a trip to Colorado for a little time on the slopes on the back of a snowmobile. Not sure where to go once you get there? Here’s a list of the top snowmobiling trails in Colorado, courtesy of Colorado.com:
- Sunlight Mountain to Powderhorn: Called an “endless playground for snowmobiliers of all ages”, this 120-mile trail from Sunlight to Powderhorn is well-groomed and features many access points beginning at Glenwood Springs and ending near Grand Junction.
- Vail Pass Recreation Area: A popular snowmobiling and backcountry ski area just east of Vail Mountain. The terrain here is “world renowned” so be prepared to share the trails with others.
- Wolf Creek/Pagosa Springs: More snow falls here on average than anywhere else in the state and the trail system runs well into the San Juan Mountains so you may want to bring a guide to help you navigate this “complex and well-cared for trail system.”
- Steamboat Springs: An expansive terrain, Steamboat Springs offers plenty of places to ride. Rabbit Ears Pass, Flat Tops Wilderness Area, and the trails heading toward the city of Craig are some of the more popular.
- Grand Lake: Take in views of the Continental Divide on the 300 miles of trail near the town in the Arapaho National Forest which run along the western border of Rocky Mountain National Park.
- Meeker: The gateway to “180 miles of groomed and ungroomed trails that challenge even the best riders.”
- South Fork: This spot is home to over 250 miles of “groomed trails woven amid wide-open ridges, sprawling meadows, and steep climbs.”
- Kremmling: A two-hour drive from Denver, this spot is located near 300 miles of snowmobiling trails including those at Rabbit Ears Pass and Spring Creek.
