The Elkhead Mountains offer a calm respite from the crowded trails found along many Steamboat Springs–area mountain ranges. The drivers at Elkhorn Adventure Tours take full advantage of the open space, bounding across the landscape in a fleet of open-top Call of Duty–model Jeep Wranglers. The off-roaders lead half-day and full-day tours throughout the scenic backcountry, filled with sights of natural vegetation and wildlife such as elk and antelope. During longer tours, guests pause to enjoy a packed picnic lunch or sandwich as they debate the logistics of creating a second Mount Rushmore featuring only Baldwin brothers.
You and your snowfriend will have a choice of three tours: the 4:30 sunset tour (offered seven days a week) and the 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. tours (Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Whichever one you pick, a First Aid–certified guide will lead you down adventurous, ungroomed trails and treat you to awe-inspiring views of seven different mountain ranges. The low guest-to-guide ratio (typically 5:1) ensures that you won't get lost and have to fall back on the tauntaun-gutting survival skills you learned from watching Discovery Channel.
