Snowmobiling in Buena Vista

The Buena Vista area is beautiful year round! When winter is at its height and the Colorado mountains are in their snow-blanketed glory, snowmobiling is a great way to get out and experience their splendor. The Buena Vista area snowmobile trails consist of groomed trails located in the San Isabel Forest. They offer varying terrain that is suitable for all levels of expertise, with trails that range from easy to difficult. The trails travel near or cross over the Continental Divide, which is where the water flows to the west, toward the Pacific Ocean, on one side and to the east, toward the Atlantic Ocean, on the other. The Upper Arkansas River Valley is surrounded by several fourteeners, mountains which summit at over 14,000 feet high, just part of the gorgeous scenery in the area. The trails are accessible from the towns of Buena Vista, Johnson Village, Nathrop, and St. Elmo.


Leadville and Twin Lakes Snowmobile Trails Map, Colorado

From  flat, rolling meadows to steep, craggy mountains, snowmobiling in Leadville has it all. Centrally located, Leadville’s groomed trails are just 85 miles west of Denver, 21 miles south of the Copper Mountain ski area and 35 miles north of Buena Vista. The trails run from 10,000 to over 13,500 feet in elevation and brush the San Isabel National Forest, offering something for everybody. Families will enjoy the East Tennessee Trail, located just off Highway 24 on East Tennessee Road, which offers easy riding and several areas to stop and play. More experienced riders will enjoy the steeper trails near Slide Lake. Whatever your style, though, be sure to exercise caution as many of the trails are shared with skiers.
