You can even rent a GoPro to capture the adventure on camera! If you want the ultimate day in the snow, consider renting the Snowmobile Adventure Package. Ice Pirates has partnered with Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to create an incredible package. You’ll ride the Cascade Canyon train to Cascade and back. On the return trip, you’ll de-board and be picked up by the Ice Pirates to explore the country. Once you return to the Ice Pirates basecamp, you’ll enjoy hot chocolate and snacks. Then it’s back on the train to come home! It’s offered from early December to early April.

Have a Snowmobile Adventure

One of the most popular snowmobile rental places is Snowmobile Adventures! They have partnered with Purgatory Resort, which means they have access to over 35,000 acres of terrain and over 75 miles of trails. They offer three types of tours. The first is a two-hour tour, which is the best deal. The three-hour tour is geared toward the group that wants to experience as much of the terrain as possible.
