Terrain Guide to Snowmobiling in Grand County

Grand Lake

Grand Lake consistently ranks in the top 10 for snowmobile destinations in the United States and has earned the title of the "Snowmobile Capital of Colorado."™ This is in large part due to their 300 miles of trails and numerous play areas available for all abilities. The town is so smitten with snowmobiles that you can even ride down the streets of Grand Lake legally. For more information call 970-627-3402 or visit the chamber's website.

Granby

Granby offers a few outfitters and snowmobile rental agencies, which is a good thing considering the town's central location within easy reach of Grand County's choice trails and public lands, such as the areas around Lake Granby, at the foot of the Indian Peaks, and south near the Byers Peak area. For more information call 970-887-2311 or visit the chamber's website.

Kremmling

Seriously love snowmobiling? The public lands in and around Kremmling boast some of the best ungroomed trails in the West. Some of the hotspots in the area include:

  • Rabbit Ears Pass: Features some of the best snowmobiling in the state. The summit of the pass is an easy 40-minute drive from Kremmling. Miles of trail and open terrain await you.
  • Gore Pass: Just 16 miles outside of Kremmling, Gore Pass is a snowmobile paradise. Powder days abound here as snowmobilers traverse acres of National Forest.
