Scenic Two Hour Snowcat Mine Tours

Cruise in cozy comfort past a scenic settlement of abandoned log cabins before climbing to the ‘top of the world’ on trails through the forest while enjoying panoramic views

Tours depart from the former site of the Colorado Belle Placer Mine, approximately 12 miles south of Copper Mountain on Highway 91. Board the big Cat and pass by a scenic settlement of abandoned log cabins before climbing to the 'top of the world' on trails through the forest to enjoy panoramic views overlooking the valley where the Arkansas River originates. Mt. Arkansas is the closest peak, while Mt. Sherman and Mt. Democrat, two of the country's highest mountains at more than 14,000 feet stand majestically off to the east. Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive are visible to the South past the picturesque mining town of Leadville. This private, unspoiled mountain paradise is dotted with more than 50 mines, remnants of Leadville's gold and silver boomtown days.

During the tour guests 10 years old and over will have the option to ride a snow bike down gentle slopes in the deep snow high on the mountain. Guides will offer instruction for guests who choose to participate, while others can watch the fun from the Snow Coach's large windows. Starbucks Coffee and hot chocolate will be served at the private Yurt, while guests can warm and relax inside or gather on the large deck to enjoy enchanting views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive to the south past the picturesque mining town of Leadville.
