Trailblazer Snowmobile Tours
This 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.

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.
For a great Snowmobile Tour Operator, check out: www.trailblazersnowmobile.com Trailblazer doesn't pay me for this link, but if you make a reservation with them, tell them you heard about them through Travel by GPS anyway. - Thanks.
