Here in the awe-inspiring Vail Valley, the daffodils are blooming and the chatty songbirds have returned. The sun is getting hot on our skin with sporadic days of gray skies and snow flurries. These random spurts of winter bring back warm, joyful memories of the fantastic winter season we had. We could not have had a wonderful 2015-2016 winter season our dedicated staff, all-star concierges, and most of all, our spectacular guests. Thank you for all the laughs, smiles, and joyous memories. We are already having a blast rafting and fishing, and will start our ranch activities May 27th, Memorial Day Weekend. We hope to see all this summer or next winter!
Earlier this month we were lucky enough to have folks from Colorado.com stop by and spend the day with us. We could not be more pleased at what the result was. Here is a peek into the world of snowmobiling and our daily lives…
It’s that time of year again! Time when the truly crazy mountain folk get together and participate in one of the more ludicrous activities we’ve ever heard of. Skiing behind a horse running full speed… WHO DOES THAT?! Not only are you holding onto a rope while being pulled by 2,000 pounds of pure horsepower but you must also collect rings and fly off jumps in the process. It is chaos and completely wonderful.
Sage is fortunate and thrilled to be a part of such an outlandish event. We love being located in the Vail Valley and are active supporters of the community. This is such a great event we could not miss partnering up with Minturn to help. As a sponsor, we will be providing snowmobiles for training and transportation during the event as well as having a tent on site with freebies and info.
Stop by our tent Saturday & Sunday to say hello and play cornhole with us! If you’re participating in the events we wish you the best! And wear a helmet!!
Snowmobiling at Sage Outdoor Adventures is something you shouldn’t miss while you’re in Vail, Colorado. Here is the secret to dressing for success with Sage:
Hope to see you soon for the best two hours of your trip!
It is December 15th, 2015 and we are about to reveal our top-secret tricks to operating on the BEST snowmobiling trail system in Colorado. (we love it, but it’s not just our opinion! check out these REVIEWS for proof)
Here’s how we do it:
Step 1: Gain access to 6,000 acres of incredible terrain that only YOU are in charge of trail maintenance & creation.
Step 2: Buy three badass CATS to groom with.
Step 3: Do a very, very silly snowdance to make it dump on all 6,000 acres of private property. (***it snowed 14 inches the past 24 hours!! IT WORKED!!!)
Step 4: Make a very large pot of coffee at approximately 3:45 AM.
Step 5: Make sure you have a killer “Morning Chill” playlist ready to jam out to while on trail.
Step 5: Bundle up and head out to the CAT to start grooming every single trail at 4 AM.
Step 6: After 5 hours of grooming, head back to the lodge and await the customers for the day!
Step 7: Take guests out on perfectly groomed trails all day!
Step 8: Sleep & Repeat the next day.
We have a staff of groomers that get to play in these every morning… Feel like waking up a little early for some peace and quiet on the ranch? See if you can join the next groom session! (only if you promise to make the coffee 🙂 )
