3 Essentials for a Mountaintop Proposal

Mountain Top

One of the things we love most about our jobs here at Sage Outdoor Adventures is being a part of our customers’ experience in the mountains and some very memorable moments.

Not all of those moments are this exceptional, but we recently had the opportunity to witness one of our customers proposing to his now fiancé on a snowmobile tour. Check out the video below.

Congratulations! We’re glad we could be a part of such a special memory! And it gave us a few ideas about what is needed for the perfect mountaintop proposal.

Beautiful Mountain Views

A proposal will be memorable no matter what, but why not make those memories as stunning as the moment? If you’re planning on popping the question on a mountaintop, be sure to do some preemptive research on the views and the weather for the special day. Here at Sage, our lucky couple had multiple snowcapped mountain ranges surrounding them, all filled with Colorado’s jaw-dropping natural beauty.

Study the Trail Map

Sage employs a group of knowledgeable guides to escort you across our 6000 acres private mountain, who can show you all the best adventures and views. So this couple could sit back and enjoy the moment without having to navigate back home. However, if you are planning on a private proposal on a mountain of your choosing, be sure to study the trail map! You don’t want your proposal to be sidelined by getting lost on your way back home to celebrate.

A Group of Close Friends (or Not)

Adventuring through the wilds of Colorado is always fun, and is often an occasion for shared memories for a family or friend group – and a proposal is certainly memorable! Depending on what you and your partner prefer, inviting friends and family along for the ride can make the proposal even more special. Or, if you want a more intimate affair, opt for a private adventure to the peak. Just be sure to capture the moment for your loved ones!

Whether you’re vacationing with friends or family or just looking for a beautiful mountain experience, there’s nothing quite like a backcountry snowmobile adventure on one of the most historic and scenic private ranches in the Vail Valley!

After one of these proposals, there’s no way they could say no.

So here are some of the best bachelor/bachelorette party ideas in Colorado.

Our White Water Raft Racing Team Prepares for National Championships

Sage Raft Race Team Preparing for National Championships

It’s the dead of winter and it might seem like a long time until rafting season here in Colorado, but the Sage raft race team is hard at work, preparing for the Rafting National Championships in May!

The 2017 championship will be held in Oklahoma City from May 18th – May 20th as part of the Oklahoma City Whitewater Festival, an event that will also include canoe and kayaking competitions.

Throughout the winter months, the Sage white water raft racing team trains hard in, surprise, the pool. How does that work, you ask? With a bungee strap anchored to the side of the pool, the team is able to paddle in place, which provides great resistance training.

It may not be the same as barreling down wild rivers, but our team is serious about their training, and we are fired up to compete in the May championships!

No matter the time of year, we’re always working hard to plan our next rafting season here at Sage Outdoor Adventures. We keep an eye on the winter weather to anticipate snowpack and the resulting runoff to give our guests the best experience possible. But no matter what the weather brings, we always look forward to getting out of the pool and having a great time with many of you out on the white water rivers of Colorado!

For more information on white water rafting here in the Vail Valley and surrounding areas, please visit our rafting page. In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying the snowmobiling here in this winter paradise!

2016 Gore Canyon Race Results and Photos

We had  a great day, and had a pretty clean run in Gore, which is always a task in itself. It’s one of the harder class V runs in the country. Ended up second in the raft division, and already looking forward to next seasons racing. We are one of the only elite teams to be made up of a single company’s raft guides. Lots of teams are a conglomerate of river experts from many walks of life, but Sage’s race team is 100% Sage guides!!
