Where is Vail, Colorado?

The town of Vail is about 90 minutes west of Denver (weather and traffic dependent) and is located right along the I-70 corridor. Vail is considered by locals to be the ideal basecamp location in Colorado due to its proximity and easy access to neighboring resort towns such as Aspen, Glenwood Springs, Steamboat Springs and Breckenridge. The RMAR shop in Minturn is just 10 minutes west of Vail and is located along the historic main street of Minturn. 

What does “Do-it-yourself” or “Rent-Your-Own?” mean?

“Do-it-yourself” or “Rent-your-own” implies that you are required to trailer the vehicles to your destination. There is no direct trail access out of our Vail location for Snowmobiles, Timbersleds, or side-by-side RZRs. For DIY rentals, we recommend at least 48 hours advanced notice to guarantee a trailer for your rental. If you are looking for Guided tours or just direct trail access, please visit our Buena Vista and Red Cliff locations.

When do the trails near Vail open for the summer?

Snow pack and animal migration patterns have a direct effect on summer trail openings. The Forest Service opens the gates on Vail Pass after June 1st due for animal migration, but gate opening can be delayed even longer due to snow depth. Most trails down valley are open by mid-May, but snow pack can cause delays there as well. For early season reservations, please call the shop for current conditions. For trail sustainability purposes, we do not allow machines on muddy trails caused by snow melt.

What to do in Vail

While the town of Vail is known for world-class skiing, The Vail Valley (Eagle County) has something for everyone. The local town of Minturn, just minutes west of Vail is rich in railroad and mining history, offering local artisan shopping and unique eateries with many local summer and winter recreation areas. Head a little farther west and you can visit Beaver Creek Village for 5-star dining, a show at the Vilar Performing Arts Center, or mountain biking through miles of trails. If you continue west to Eagle and Dotsero, you will find hundreds of miles of OHV and ATV trails. Past Dotsero on I-70, you'll head into the famous Glenwood Canyon and on into Glenwood Springs where there are two hot springs resorts to choose from. 

 

Whether you’re looking to Paddleboard the Colorado River, take a Slingshot for a cruise to the hot springs or get fresh tracks on a snowmobile, RMAR has the right toys for any adventure in and around Vail.
