Totally Unique CO Winter Adventure

Perhaps you have grown tired of the long lines at ski resorts or the weekend traffic on I-70, or you are the type of person who seeks adventure – either way, I’ve got a suggestion that is sure to shake your winter blues!  Estes Park Outfitters is now offering a totally unique Colorado mountain adventure: Private High-Country Snow Cat Tours.

Snow Cat tour in CO mountains

 

You can choose a half day, full day, or overnight tour option (guests stay in a secluded log lodge nestled in Roosevelt National Forest, just 6 miles from downtown Estes Park).  Every tour is custom.  Cost for the snowcat is $350, with a maximum of 6 people.  Ride into the high country on a snow cat – a winter vehicle that’s one part snowmobile, one part hummer – and from there you can cross country ski in a pristine back country wilderness, carve first tracks as you downhill ski, or backcountry snowshoe with your friends.

If you choose to stay the night, you and up to 7 other friends will enjoy the seclusion of staying in a totally GREEN, solar powered, luxury mountain retreat on 20 acres of pristine mountain property surrounded by federal lands. After spending an exhilarating day outdoors, come home to a roaring fire and relax.  What an awesome escape!
