Colorado offers unique opportunities for motorized recreation1 because of its vast terrain appropriate for off-highway motorized use. As such, the sport and industry of motorized recreation has increased in popularity in Colorado for both residents and non-residents. The Louis Berger Group, Inc. (Louis Berger) evaluated the economic contribution of motorized recreation in Colorado for the 2012-13 season2 and summarizes the results in this report.


Much of the analysis presented here is based on a 2001 study completed by Hazen and Sawyer titled Economic Contribution of Off-Highway Vehicle Use in Colorado (the 2001 study).3 The 2001 study includes a household survey that collected valuable information on where and when motorized-recreation enthusiasts utilized their vehicles for recreation, average expenditures associated with recreational trips, and annual expenditures associated with operating and maintaining vehicles. Louis Berger adjusted information on collected in that study for inflation and used it in combination with current data on the number of households that participate in motorized recreation in the state to estimate the total economic contribution of the sport in Colorado.
