5 Reasons Saskatchewan Is THE Place To Fall In Love With Snowmobiling

Hibernators need not apply: In Saskatchewan, cold weather means getting outside and exploring the province—on the motorcycle-on-skis-machine commonly known as a snowmobile. The province has one of the most extensive networks of trails in the country and locals are passionate about riding them. For visitors to the province, renting a snowmobile is a great way to get a feel for the sport—and maybe fall in love with it. Here’s why Sask is the best place to start snowmobiling this winter:

 

The snowmobiling community is strong

Saskatchewan has 66 clubs dedicated to the sport of snowmobiling with members organizing rallies, safety and information sessions, and events designed to introduce new riders to the sport.

 

The trails are endless and well maintained

A quick look at the province’s map shows a web of trails stretching all across Saskatchewan, with some as long as 140 km. In total, there’s over 10,000km of groomed trails. Trail maps indicate where snowmobilers can find lodging, fuel, and repair shops. The interactive map also updates trail conditions, so novice snowmobilers know exactly what they’re getting into on their chosen route.

 

The snow and scenery

Canadians from other provinces may think of Saskatchewan as pure prairie but there’s far more than flat farmland to take in. Saskatchewan’s snowy trails weave through river valleys, roll over hills, and cut through gorgeous boreal forests.

 

The season stretches well into spring

Snowmobiling addicts can keep their machines on the trails until April in places like Hudson Bay, where nearly 700 km of trails come equipped with cozy shelters to stop and warm up with a thermos of coffee or hot chocolate.

 

There’s an app

Available at both the Apple Store and on Google Play, the Sask Snowmobile Trails app lets you see where you are, no data required. You can also look up trail conditions, find nearby places to refuel (for both you and your snowmobile), and build shared itineraries and routes with friends.
