Vail has some of the best snowmobiling in Colorado, so spend a day off the ski hill on a high-speed adventure through forested trails, open meadows and alpine bowls choked with champagne powder.

Where to go Snowmobiling
The two areas most conducive to Vail snowmobiling are Vail Pass and Camp Hale, both located within the White River National Forest about a half-hour from Vail.
Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area (Map PDF) offers easy access to 50 miles of groomed high-elevation trails, while Camp Hale boasts beginner and intermediate circuits on its 80 miles of groomed trails. Both destinations have seemingly endless play areas and powder fields.
