You see them at night when you drive past a ski area: lights in the dark, impossibly high, maneuvering stealthily over difficult terrain and you wonder what it would be like to be up there, inside one of those winter-time, tank-treaded vehicles. Snowcats are the enormous machines that are used to groom ski slopes, but visitors to Glenwood Springs can now catch a ride in one to explore otherwise inaccessible areas of wilderness.
Warm and comfortable, this is a perfect way to provide everyone in the family with a memorable backcountry experience. From the tiniest tots to older folks like grandparents, everyone will love this unique experience that’s big on fun without all the physical strain.
Snowcat tours last approximately 2.5 hours and depart daily at 10:00 a.m. during the winter season.
