Company Overview
The Routt Powder Riders club helps to maintain and mark approximately 100 miles of trails located on the continental divide in northwest Colorado. Colorado boasts of 3,000 miles of some of the highest and most beautiful snowmobile trails in the world. The abundant snowfall and breathtaking scenery on Rabbit Ears and Buffalo Passes make it one of the best in Colorado and beyond.

Our club consists of snowmobilers of all skill levels from beginner to expert and range in age from 12 to over 70. Many of our members have either Search and Rescue or Guiding experience, which makes them very familiar with the area. So if you want to gain more knowledge of the area or become a more confident and skilled snowmobiler, then come ride with us! Also, most of our rides are oriented so all skill levels can participate and enjoy challenging terrain while not being overwhelmed.

Meetings are held from October through May on the second Wednesday of each month. Meeting location is announced on website and through email and are usually at 6pm. Meetings are occasionally held at local restaurants where dinner is part of the meeting, so check our newsletter for updates.
