Snowmobiling is an exhilarating activity, perfect for all ages. Snowmobiling allows the rider to explore uncharted mountains in a fast paced and fun way. November is the start of the snowmobiling season, which goes until about mid March. Colorado has over 3,000 miles of snowmobiling trails. You can rent a snowmobile and tackle the trails yourself or book a guided tour.

It is imperative to dress warm enough for any winter activity, especially snowmobiling. Moving at such fast speeds, with the icy wind blowing past you, can lead to discomfort and even serious injuries if you’re not properly prepared. Many rental places will offer gear rentals as well. If you ski or snowboard, wear your same gear. If you don’t start with long sleeve thermal underwear, then snow pants and jacket, bibs, gloves, and boots. Thick wool socks and waterproof boots will ensure no damage to your feet.
