Snowmobiles (and other dangerous activities on the slopes)

Hard to believe, but true. They'll rent you a snowmobile and let you cruise around the Vail ski slopes. This is a guided tour, but our guide seemed to have some pretty gung-ho ideas of where to take this crew of novice snowmobilers.

Below are Owen and Anika, who were also on our trip. They managed to complete the grueling course without accident or needing the guide to get their vehicle unstuck. A feat which no other party in our tour accomplished.

The scariest part of this trip was the climb up the mogul field on snowmobile. The combination of steep climb with three foot bumps proved too much.  Our snowmobile rolled over and fortunately did not crush us!
