Took the Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to this excursion over spring break. Very easy! Was picked up by a super friendly guy who drove slow and was extremely patient and careful through the winding mountains and traffic (We live in Houston with most everyone driving with road rage) he was terrific! Our snowmobile tour guide was patient and kind as... More

My boyfriend and I envisioned some sort of snow adventure and he, having never ridden snowmobiles, 'sleds', and, liking all things fast, was interested in doing this. We booked Ice Pirates through Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge RR site, and it. Was. That. Easy! Tim, from Ice Pirates, picked us up from a stop on the train's route and took us to... More

This is our second year in a row to ride with Ice Pirates! There were 10 of us on the trip this morning. The oldest rider was 70 and the youngest was 3. This is definitely an adventure that is family friendly. You won't get a better view of the breathtaking scenery any other way! Our guide was amazing, thanks... More

I highly recommend the Ice Pirates for your snowmobile adventures. We had a great time and they are very knowledgeable and looked out for us the whole trip. Tim was our guide and he took our pictures plus telling us a little history about the mountains we were riding on. I will take this tour again when I am in... More

While skiing at Purgatory, my family of four (daughter 8 and son 12) were tipped off by the home owner we were renting from that Ice Pirates Backcountry Adventures is the best outfitter for snowmobiling tours in the area. It was the right call. We wanted to get up and out of the ordinary and be on our own in... More

Trip of a lifetime. To see the mountains for that point of view is indescribable. Our guide Dion was a pleasure to talk to on the van ride to and from the location. He made sure we got the full experience out on the ride. It was an exhilarating adventure.

This was my third time on this tour in seven years. This by far was the best tour (3-hour tour), as it ended up being a private tour for me along the guide Tim! A recent snow event dropped four to sex feet of fresh snow in the area, which made for much trail blazing until most of the trails... More

This was such an amazing experience! The view was absolutely breath taking. I did a 3 hour tour with a couple friends and we all had a great time. The conditions were awesome. The tour guides Shane and Chuck did a fantastic job leading us all around the trials and over the hills. They both were VERY helpful!!! I would... More

The staff was very helpful, explained things well. The Guides were AWESOME! You can go at your speed/level. They were so helpful when my machine wouldn't start for me, I had a new snowmobile that I could start easily with in minutes. I will be back.
