Winter snow fun isn’t all about skis or snowshoes, and you don’t need your own machine to experience snowmobiling.

Glenwood Adventure Co. offers daily snowmobile tours to anyone seeking a good time in the backcountry of Bair Ranch, located off of Interstate 70 in the Glenwood Canyon.

Guests visiting the valley or locals looking for something different to do with the abundance of snow received this winter are invited can take a two-and-a-half-hour tour that covers a loop of 25 miles. The tour takes the riders to multiple vantage points of the eastern half of Glenwood Canyon, the Flat Tops Wilderness and the town of Dotsero.

A single rider can take the tour for $155; two can go for $200.

A favorite portion of the tour takes the riders through a thick patch of aspen and pines trees known as the enchanted forest.

This is Glenwood Adventure’s fourth year doing snowmobile tours, and the company was hopeful for a good snow year after purchasing 16 new machines last fall.

Riders are advised to dress with multiple layers that can be taken off as necessary. Waterproof footwear and pants and gloves are important. The company provides snowsuits, helmets and goggles if needed.
