OVERVIEW

Experience a Colorado winter like you never have before. At 10 a.m., you’ll board a vintage steam locomotive train on the Durango Narrow Gauge Railroad, a historic railroad constructed back in 1881 that offers spectacular views of Colorado’s mountains and the Cascade Canyon wilderness. After lunch, de-board at the Rockwood Wye where Ice Pirates personally shuttles you to their outpost for the second part of your winter adventure: a 2-hour snowmobile tour through the San Juan Mountains. This experience can be tailored to any type of rider – from brand new to advanced. Guests receive an “Ice Pirates Booty Bag” and transportation back to the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Depot.
