West of Denver and east of Vail, the Vail Pass area has moderate to varying terrain with steep and deep snow for snowmobiling. There are snowmobile trails and open powder fields.

The Vail Pass snowmobiling trailhead is off eastbound US70 at Vail Pass or from the Town of Pando located west of Vail Pass off SR24. There is a parking area and a small fee to help maintain the Vail Pass snowmobiling trails.

All snowmobiles operating on federal lands within Colorado, such as Vail Pass, are required to be registered with Colorado State Parks. This registration permit is available at most National Forest ranger offices and at some chamber of commerce offices. It is highly recommended to purchase the $3 annual Colorado Search And Rescue Card (CORSAR) prior to snowmobiling to help reimburse local search teams should they be needed.

Overall, Vail Pass is the 7th most popular snowmobile trail of all 24 snowmobiling rides in Colorado.
