Family Winter Activities in the Vail Valley
The Vail Valley and surrounding area is more than skiing the big mountains. If you are in the Vail area or staying for multiple days, you probably want to get the most out of your trip, and maybe even find some adventure for the whole family. And Nova Guides has exactly what you need to not only fill your days with adventure, fun, and a lot of smiles, but you will create memories that your kids and whole family will remember for the rest of their lives. And isn’t that what it’s all about? Well, that and filling your Facebook and Instagram accounts with imagery that will make everyone you know jealous with envy. But nothing can replace the real thing and being in places that very few people will ever get to see and experience.
Join us for a snowmobile adventure you wont forget! With guided tours in two locations, our 31 years of snowmobile experience surpasses that of any other outfitter in the area. With access to over 100 miles of groomed trails, the opportunities are limitless! Reach elevations of nearly 12,500 ft on our Top of the Rockies tour. Our 13-passenger snowcoach is the perfect option for those looking to take in the scenery with the luxury of heat and comfort. We provide transportation with all of our guided snowmobile and snowcoach activities and will pick you up right at your hotel in Vail, Beaver Creek, Avon, Edwards, Copper Mtn, Frisco, & Breckenridge.

Our Tigiwon location is just 15 minutes from Vail and Beaver Creek. Offering shorter (2-hour) tours, Tigiwon tours are a great option if you’re looking to do some snowmobiling without dedicating a day away from the slopes. With an 8:30 am option, you can snowmobile in the morning and ski in the afternoon. Also a great option for families with younger children or first time snowmobilers – we can accommodate ages 2 and up on these tours.

If you’re looking for a little more, we offer a specialty tour on more powerful, 600 cc snowmobiles. With a smaller client/guide ratio, our experienced guides do more than give you a great tour of the area. We get into advanced riding techniques and venture off the designated trail system with our ‘HP’ tours.
