North of Kremmling and east of Steamboat Springs, the Rabbit Ears Pass snowmobiling area has 250 miles of groomed snowmobile trails at elevations ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 feet.
To reach the Rabbit Ears Pass snowmobiling trailhead from Denver, head west on US40 to Rabbit Ears Pass. The snowmobile trails head both north and south from the pass. The northern trails run north and then loop west to the Dry Campground Trailhead which is accessed via CR38 from Steamboat Springs.
All snowmobiles operating on federal lands within Colorado, such as snowmobiling Rabbit Ears 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.
