Colorado Backcountry Rentals offers unguided rentals for Summit County’s backcountry in the high Rocky Mountains. Their check-in desk is just minutes from Keystone and they offer many different vehicles for you to ride solo or in pairs! All rentals include gas and a helmet, and they’ll drop you and your vehicle off at Vail Pass Recreation Area where you’ll have unguided riding capabilities throughout the backcountry of Colorado. Vail Pass is located in the scenic White River National Forest and CBR offers great packages for half day or full day rentals for you to enjoy the area.
Colorado Backcountry Rentals offers two different kinds of summer off-roading vehicles, an Arctic Cat TRV or a Yamaha Rhino. The Arctic Cat is the standard four-wheeler, with passenger space for two. It’s base is on a long-wheelbase chassis and has a passenger seating area equipped with footrests, grab handles and a backrest. Spring rates are calibrated to bear the load of a passenger. The extra wheelbase, combined with the Arctic Cat’s long-travel, independent rear suspension, gives the TRV outstanding stability and a smooth ride. You really don’t notice the extra weight, and as a passenger, you’ll feel very secure. In other words, this is the vehicle to use! In addition, CBR also offers the Yamaha Rhino which is a cross between an ATV and a pick-up truck. They are known as side-by-sides or UTVs and are becoming incredibly popular. The Yamaha Rhino has a molded sun top, bed rails, over fenders, a front bumper guard, and a full windshield- just the thing for getting off the beaten path.
The prices differ a bit; the Arctic Cat single Rider half day runs $120 up to $195 for a full day. The dual rider Arctic Cat runs $160 for half day and $250 for a full day, and the Rhino runs $175 for a half day and $265 for a full day, and remember all rentals include gas and a helmet. If you are doing a full day of riding, be sure to bring a picnic lunch or you can cruise on over to the Red Cliff and have a delicious lunch at Mango’s Restaurant and clients of CBR receive a 10% discount!
When you rent through CBR, you need to check into their Frisco office and then drive over to the trailhead off I-70 exit 190. So be sure you have a car and transportation to get you to and from the trailhead and the office! Colorado Backcountry Rentals is a great company to go through if you are looking for ATV Rentals.
