Take the ride of your life on a Telluride Outside snowmobile tour. Telluride Outside offers half day, advanced half day and full day snowmobile tours in the magnificent Beaver Park area between the Wilson and Dolores mountain ranges.


Just 30 minutes from Telluride, our Fall Creek snow base is the gateway to seldom traveled backcountry with unmatched riding opportunities and scenery.


On most tours, we stop several times to take photos, discuss ecology, observe occasional wildlife and prepare for challenging sections of trail.


The scenery simply cannot be overstated.


Our trails traverse glades, forests and park land between some of the highest peaks in Southwest Colorado, with soaring views of the Wilson Range, Dolores peaks, Little Cone, Lone Cone, the Sneffels Range and the La Sal Mountains of eastern Utah.


The pine, fir and aspen forest provides a winter home to elk, mule deer, lynx, mountain lion, ermine, fox, bobcat and coyote.

 


 

Telluride Outside Snowmobile Tours

Family friendly tours (half day tours): Our groomed trails and spacious meadows offer a wonderful variety of terrain for riders of any ability. Inexperienced riders enjoy classic touring on wide trails with soft edges and gentle corners. We have few of the tight trees and hairpin turns that characterize other high-elevation tours. Safety is emphasized at every juncture. Our professional guides conduct a concise safety orientation to ensure comfort and confidence while touring.

Double sleds accommodate guests who wish to ride along without driving.

Advanced terrain (advanced half day and full day tours): Experienced snowmobilers are in for a treat. Telluride Outside rides hundreds of acres of advanced terrain in Beaver Park and the Black Mesa area, highlighted by the rolling hills and glades of "The Circus." Experienced riders are advised to consider our 3-hour tour, which allows plenty of time to explore the periphery of Beaver Park's spectacular terrain. Our full day Dunton Tour is also an excellent choice for experienced riders.

Lone Cone Cabin full day:  Telluride Outside is proud to offer a special full day snowmobile tour to Lone Cone Cabin, an excursion that combines the best trail riding in the region with a freshly prepared hot lunch at an authentic backcountry location high in the San Juan Mountains.  Nestled just 12 miles from our Fall Creek snowbase, the historic Lone Cone Cabin, or "Guard Station," provides a fantastic winter retreat.  Easy to access regardless of trail conditions, all riders can experience the charm of Telluride's backcountry with the comforts of a woodburning stove, gorgeous views and gourmet hot lunch.  Lone Cone Cabin is a fantastic option for families, corporate retreats, or a secluded escape with friends.  Single:  $645; Double $995

Telluride Outside Snowmobile Tours

Dunton Hot Springs full dayNOT AVAILABLE WINTER 2020-2021.  Among the great tours of the West, Telluride Outside's full day trip from Fall Creek to Dunton across Black Mesa is a beggar's banquet of Rocky Mountain riding. It should be noted that our Dunton tour is not restricted to advanced riders, but there is seemingly unlimited play terrain and powder shots along this 28-mile cross-mountain route. Upon reaching Dunton, we are treated to a gourmet lunch and hot springs soak in the secluded mountain retreat before riding back across the snowy divide.

How to Get There: Telluride Outside's snow base is located just 30 minutes west from Telluride and Mountain Village. Clean, safe, comfortable transportation is provided for every tour with door-to-door service in the Mountain Village and convenient meeting places in downtown Telluride. Our vehicles are equipped with studded snow tires for winter driving safety. Guests traveling from Ouray or Montrose may conveniently meet us in Placerville or Sawpit.

 

 

4-Stroke Ski Doo Grand Touring snowmobilescleaner, quieter and safer!  Our new snowmobiles emit up to 90% less carbon dioxide and are much quieter on the trail.  They are more intuitive to operate with an operator-friendly clutch system and feature a factory-made 2-up seat that is more comfortable for both the driver and passenger.  According to General Manager John Duncan, “For the last ten years, we’ve been waiting for 4-stroke snowmobile technology to be incorporated in machines that are suitable for touring.  This advancement will significantly improve our customer experience, work environment and carbon footprint.”  Enjoy the new snowmobiles!  4-Stroke snowmobiles will be featured on our standard half day tours and longer trail riding experiences.

 
Polaris 600 RMK: the right tool for the job. Telluride Outside’s “Advanced Half Day” and full day snowmobile tours are completely unique in the Telluride area. In most snow conditions, these tours offer the opportunity for extensive off-trail riding, sometimes in deep powder.

To enhance the experience, Telluride Outside offers new model Polaris 600 RMK snowmobiles for these extended tours. The 600 RMK is an acclaimed powder riding machine that offers more horsepower and a longer track than comparable touring machines. Handlebars and running boards are specifically designed for either sitting or standing, giving the rider greater command in aggressive riding situations. Experienced snowmobilers will be rewarded in their choice of an advanced half day or full day tour.

Telluride Outside Snowmobile ToursWhat to wear: Dress like you're going skiing. A snow suit or snow pants and parka will keep you warm on a wintery ride. Goggles and a neck gaiter are important for safety and comfort (Telluride Outside cannot provide these in winter 2020-2021 due to COVID restrictions). Your snowmobile has heated hand grips, but guests should wear insulated gloves. Warm socks and winter boots are a must. For your convenience, Telluride Outside offers a selection of high quality snow suits and boots for guests who do not have their own.
