Zephyr Lodge Condo -- Area Information


 

Snowmobiling

This information is compiled to assist guests who rent our Condo at the Zephyr Mountain Lodge.  If you've arrived at this page as a result of a web search on Snowmobiling, we hope you benefit from the information.  And if you need lodging, thank you for considering us.


Snowmobiling is the perfect outdoor activity to give compliment your ski vacation.  Whether you are expert or novice and are needing to give your legs a rest or just want something a little different, a day of snowmobiling can provide lasting memories.  Bust untracked power in pristine mountain meadows, cruise over hundreds of maintained trails, or journey up to the nation's Continental Divide.    Don't forget to bring your camera to photograph the scenery, wildlife and friends.

There are 4 well established and well run snowmobiling outfitters in the Winter Park area operating in two locations -- Winter Park / Fraser and Grand Lake.  Both these areas receive excellent snow and therefore have the longest seasons.  Most rentals in Grand Lake are unguided -- meaning you and your party snowmobile wherever you like.  The obvious freedom is offset by the challenges finding your way and extricating snowmobiles from deep snow.  Most rentals in the Winter Park / Fraser area are guided.   And due to the potential of severe weather conditions on the Continental Divide, a guide is always recommended.

A 'must do' activity is Grand Adventures special Continental Divide tour.  Leave the Fraser Valley and climb over 3000 feet to our nation's ridgeline.  Along the way, you follow heavily forested 1800's vintage stagecoach trails, traverse a century old railroad grade, and climb past timberline into a world of giant meadows that seem frozen on top of the world.  Watch the weather and select a clear day.
