Snowmobiling Tin Cup Pass

Snowmobiling Tin Cup Pass from St. Elmo, Colorado


Snowmobiling from the Colorado Ghost Town of St Elmo, one can feel like an explorer from back in old Colorado mining times, despite the fact that you are on a very modern snow machine.


Narrow groomed snowmobile trails wind you six miles from the base at St Elmo to the top of Tin Cup Pass at 12,100ft, taking you to another dimension. The groomed snowmobile trail is courtesy of the Buena Vista Snow Drifters Colorado snowmobile club, based in nearby Buena Vista, Colorado, who provides nearly 130 miles of groomed snowmobile access on various trails over the Continental Divide.


From St Elmo to Tin Cup Pass, the groomed access can get narrow at times, but side by side riding is available in many places. The trail is well marked with orange trail marking posts in areas prone to wind. To access the top of Tin Cup Pass at 12,100ft, there is a steep straightforward section that requires a little acceleration, but the views at the top will not disappoint.


Follow the groomed snowmobile trail 7 miles further down the backside of the pass past Mirror Lake to Tin Cup Township. From here, groomed trails will continue on to Taylor Park Reservoir and Taylor Park Trading Post where you can utilize the gas station and restaurant.


The best part is that after a long day exploring the Continental Divide by snowmobile, at once you return to the trailhead at St Elmo, its just 6 miles down the road to natural Colorado geothermic hot springs at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort.


What a better way to relax at the end of the day in the cold that in natural, odorless geothermic hot springs. Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort has a variety of lodging available from lodge style rooms to rustic yet modern cabins
