Riding with
Trailblazer Snowmobile Tours

Doug & Richard Snowmobiling photo op Arapaho NF near Winter ParkThis was my first experience with "mushing the Iron Dog" and Trailblazer's made it a good time.

The guys and I took a break from skiing at Loveland and Winter Park, spending two-hours on an intense snowmobile ride through the Arapaho National Forest.   Although much of the ride was out-and-back on snow covered forest roads, we got cut loose in an area called Church Park.  When we returned to the ranch house, I felt like I had accomplished something and I had a few sore muscles to prove it.

Download this GPS Map of the roads and trails we rode, including the staging area where you can load/unload your own sled.

Adventure Travel Tip

When you rent a snowmobile, they will usually supply you with snow boots and a helmet, but you should bring your own goggles to protect your eyes from debris that flies up from the rider in front of you.
