A sampling of Yorkton’s sled scene

One of those secret powder stashes Michael Fidek won't say too much about.
Snowmobiler Michael Fidek is in love with the terrain around Yorkton. He stakes out the most exciting places to ride in untouched powder—this is one of his "secret stashes." Fidek is fortunate enough to live near the Yorkton/Good Spirit trail network, so he spends a significant portion of each winter indulging in some of the province's best sledding conditions.

Yorkton is the epitome of a snowmobile-friendly city. Sledders are permitted to ride their snowmobiles right into town, and there are two trails that directly extend into city limits. 

The surrounding territory is equally inviting, with 400 kilometres of well-groomed trails to enjoy. The Yorkton Sno-Riders club is active in maintaining the trails and has warm-up shelters placed at regular intervals.

These are a few of our favourite images from this hospitable Saskatchewan community.
