Snowmobiling Tour

If you live here or are just here to visit and want something fun to do…Sage Outdoor Adventures is the place to go for the day. 

Sage Outdoor Adventures hosted us on Thursday, December 5th with a fabulous snowmobiling tour that was so much fun and picture worthy that everyone will remember it. Everyone at Sage is so knowledgeable and friendly that you forget about the cold because you are just having so much fun! 

Sage’s motto is ‘Our activities are built by the guest, for the guest. Sage has taken the guide service industry to the next level of customer service and quality of experience. Our guides and equipment are the best in the business. Come enjoy the great outdoors with us. We can not wait to share an adventure with you!’ – and boy this is certainly true! 

As for how the tour went…well, their description is better than what I can do (I’m horrible at describing) “Perfect for experienced or beginner riders. The tour starts from their beautiful log cabin with running water and newly completed restrooms, set at 8000 feet in elevation, just west of Vail and Beaver Creek. From there your guide will lead you out on 6000 acres of untouched winter wonderland through aspen glades, dark timber forests, to high alpine meadows, and along ridges with massive views. Our trails are extremely entertaining and fun to ride as we have handcrafted them through the coolest areas of the ranch for your enjoyment. Singletrack trails are our favorite!!”

Sage uses NEW SkiDoo Grand Touring Sport/ 600 ACE 4-stroke engine (60 HP) on all our guided tours (Very eco-friendly, clean burning, and quiet…no more exhaust odor!)

Transportation from your hotel in Beaver Creek, Vail, or Avon are provided. This experience for us was so easy and so much fun that we recommend you go with Sage and have a best time on your vacation here in Vail! We did take some photos to share so here are a few from the day:
