Guided Snowmobile Adventure
Snowmobile season is over for now but start making plans now to experience this starting Dec. 2013!
Available: December 14, 2012 through April 10, 2013
Experience TWO adventures in the same day! Take a vintage steam train ride to Cascade Canyon and then extend your winter fun with a guided snowmobile trip in the San Juan Mountains.
Train/Snowmobile tour: Begin your adventure as you depart Durango aboard the 10:00am D&SNG steam train bound for the wilderness location of the Cascade Canyon Wye. You will arrive at Cascade at 12:00pm and have 45 minutes to eat lunch or explore the area along the river. After an hour train ride returning toward Durango, you will detrain at Rockwood to meet your shuttle driver. You will be shuttled to the Ice Pirates Snowmobile Tours outpost on Molas Pass where you will be matched with your snowmobile and begin your 2-hour tour with experienced guides. But the fun's not over yet! Your guide will then serve you hot cocoa and appetizers around an open fire as you wind down and share your stories. You will be shuttled back to Durango to arrive at the D&S Parking Lot at 5:30pm.
