Colorado Timbersled Season: December - April
Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals was the first company in the United States to rent Timbersleds and we have been leading the industry ever since. From introducing new riders to the sport to working with manufacturers to improve performance, we at RMAR take great pride in our in-depth knowledge of these machines.
What are Timbersleds?
For experienced dirt bike and motorcycle riders, or highly seasoned snowmobile riders wanting to try a new winter sport. Riding a Timbersled is like riding a dirt bike on the snow. Rather than tires, the Timbersled has a large ski in front and a narrow snowmobile track on the back.
On a Timbersled, riders can access treelines too narrow for snowmobiles. An additional advantage is the lighter weight and increased agility of a Timbersled typically equates to less time stuck in the snow. These machines are lighter and easier to maneuver in deep powder than snowmobiles.
Timbersleds are often referred to as Snowbikes, but they are not to be confused with the motorless snow bikes you may see at the ski resorts.
As the first company in the entire state of Colorado to offer Timbersleds as a winter rental, RMAR has spent countless hours testing and improving these machines for our experienced riders.
Who can rent Timbersleds?
With safety always our top priority, we prefer riders have motorcycle or dirt bike experience. If you do not have that type of experience, but ready and willing to learn, our Buena Vista location is the ideal place to start. Our half-day or full-day guided trips in Buena Vista are designed to teach new riders how to ride a Timbersled and improve their skills. For riders with experience wanting to step up their game, these guided tours are also a great way to spend a day in backcountry snow.
Are Timbersleds hard to ride?
Timbersleds offer stability and agility. Most riders who are new to the sport will usually feel comfortable on a Timbersled within the first few hours of use. Keep in mind, a Timbersled is basically a motorcycle with a ski and a snowmobile track, which means that the rider is required to shift gears as they would on any other motorcycle or dirt bike. Again, a guided Timbersled tour is a great place to start.
Can kids ride Timbersleds?
You Betcha! We love kids that ride and we offer the ST Ripper from Timbersled for those of you looking to get your kids into the sport. Cottonwood Pass in Buena Vista offers some great terrain to learn how to ride on. We currently only have a single Timbersled ST Ripper for kids and if you would like to rent it, please give us a call directly at: 970-471-8491.
