In spite of the VERY off-season timing (October 26th, 2016) my husband and I were totally impressed with our guided tour by Chris! Man, this guy was so informative! We learned so much about the history of the Camp Hale area, the mountains and even the neighboring villages! Since we're not that young (61yrs) and not familiar with even using... More

This was the best part of our trip to the Rockies. Shane and team were very informative. We rented a side by side Can-Am and went out unguided. Shane explained the trails and made us feel at ease. The views are unparalleled!! Do yourself a favor and visit these guys. They have snowmobiles in the winter as well.

We drove ourselves out here from Vail for the morning ATV tour. The equipment was in fantastic condition and the tour was amazing. We ended up the only two on the tour and the guide was fantastic. He was very professional and made us feel extremely comfortable even though we had never ridden ATV's before. The guide let the terrain... More

Great equipment! Next time, will ride shotgun instead of rent my own. The passenger seat is awesome! Two hours is too short to ride basic trails. Need at least three hours to be able to take your time on the mountain.

Went on a guided ATV ride and had an accident. Was charged $635.00 for damages. Had purchased an "insurance policy" but it had a $750.00 deductable. Seems like the business could protect the customers a little better. Bad experience and will never do it again.

We never wish for any of our customers to have an accident and it is the most unfortunate aspect of our business. We have certain policies in place to protect both your safety and your bank account, however we must also protect the equipment we rely on to operate our business. Our policies are communicated throughout the entire process before... More

We had my daughter's wedding with Nova Guides at Camp Hale on Labor Day weekend. It was a beautiful location. The staff was incredible! From the shuttle drivers to the catering staff. The food was great and served hot and efficiently. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

This was set up for us as part of a business conference "activity" choice. Originally we were supposed to golf, and decided to change to this. I'm so glad we did! This was probably the most fun I've had on an activity or excursion in a very, very long time. The roads were in some places pretty rough, which made... More
