What to Bring & Wear

SNOWMOBILE TOURS: We provide transportation from Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon, helmet, snowsuit (if necessary), boots (if necessary), Ski-Doo snowmobiles, and lunch with our morning and full day Top of the Rockies tours. You will want to dress in warm layers as if you were going skiing. Remember that snowmobiling is an active sport and you will want to dress accordingly. Please bring warm hat, gloves or mittens, neck gator or scarf, and goggles or sunglasses.


SNOWMOBILE RENTALS: We provide helmets, and Ski-Doo snowmobiles. Snowmobile suits and boots are available for rent.  You will want to dress in warm layers as if you were going skiing.

SNOWCOACH TOURS: We provide transportation from Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon, and lunch with our morning and midday tours.  You will want to wear warm clothing, as there are opportunities to get out of the snow coach and take pictures along the way.


RAFTING: We provide transportation from Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon, all rafting equipment, including when needed: wet suits, wetsuit boots, splash tops, helmets and life jackets. Equipment may vary depending on which trip you choose.  Snack or lunch depending on which trip you choose.  You will want to wear a swimsuit or clothing of synthetic fiber such as poly-propylene. Cotton is great for your change  of clothing, but it is not a good idea to wear on the river, as it does not dry quickly. Please make sure to secure  glasses with eyewear straps, and don’t forget waterproof sunscreen.


FISHING: We provide transportation from Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon. We provide Orvis Fly Rods, Fenwick Spinning Rods, flies and Lures. We also provide rain gear. Waders are provided for wade fishing. Colorado Fishing Licenses are available through Nova Guides for $9.00/day.  You will want to make sure you have sunscreen, sunglasses, and dress in layers. Any extra clothing can be left in the vehicle while you are fishing.


ATV / SIDE BY SIDE TOURS: We provide transportation from Vail, Beaver Creek and Avon, new Can/Am All-Terrain vehicles and side-by-sides, and lunch with our morning and midday tours. You will want to be wearing long pants and sturdy shoes (no flip flops or sandals). We recommend dressing in layers, as you will be going up in elevation where the air temperature is cooler. A bandana to wear across your face is also a good idea. The ATV/Side By Side in front of you may kick up some dust.


JEEP TOURS: Our tours start from your pick up location. Our Jeeps accommodate 6 passengers. Lunch is included on our morning trips and snack is included on our 3-hour and sunset adventures. We provide blankets and rain gear in the case of inclement weather.  You will want to make sure to bring your sunglasses and sunscreen. We recommend dressing in layers, as you will be going up in elevation where the air temperature is cooler.
