A ONE HOUR WEEKLY REALITY TV SERIES.
A family-owned outdoor adventure guide service struggles against Mother Nature, government oversight and time to equip and train professional guides who offer tourists a life-changing experience that is, COLORADO XTREME.
Each week, COLORADO XTREME follows a new group of tourists arriving in Colorado, seeking the adventure of a lifetime. A strong cast prepares the mountain, machines and gear as tourists are transported to the resort. Every moment is captured as they traverse the pristine mountain resort which provides both a physical and mental challenge. The beauty and danger of each trip has an emotional impact on both the tourist and the viewer.
Darryl Bangert and his wife Robin moved to Colorado in 1975. As professional raft and ski guides, they raised their son Cole who became the 2007 World Downhill Mountain Bike Champion. Today they operate a 6,000 acre private resort in Vail providing over 20,000 tourists each year with the thrills of Snowmobiling, Horseback Riding, White Water Rafting, ATV excursions, and an award-winning Clay Target Range.
The Bangerts employ over 50 certified professional guides hand-selected by the family. The emotional rollercoaster that ensues each day is intense as they prepare the ranch for the tourists' arrival. Each episode produced in real-time begins with a staff meeting detailing the mountain conditions and the hundreds of guests that will arrive in the company transports all throughout the day. Cole handles the logistics for the company assigning routes and machines for each trip. Cast members Wes, Mike and Jason start at 3 AM grooming trails and preparing the machines for the day. Tour guides Rob and Kelly are dispatched in the early morning to pick up the tourist and area hotels and transport them safely to the ranch. Jimmy and Montana greet the guest at base camp and outfit the guest who are never prepared for the frigid temps on the ranch.
Blinding snow, steep cliffs, wildlife and raging rivers provide the drama as the tourists push their abilities and test their limits on many of the challenging courses. Each episode captures the essence and beauty of the ranch, and the transformation of the tourist as they come face to face with Mother Nature. The series delivers all of the action and reaction providing a thrilling hour of adventure.
The first season of Colorado Xtreme is all about snowmobiling on the ranch, ATV adventures, and groups of Clay Target enthusiasts. Season two features White Water Rafting, Horseback Trail Rides and ATV adventures on the ranch. Colorado Xtreme is a year round playground dream for television audiences with incredible scenery and fast moving action that never stops.
