Where can I get a trail pass?

Saskatchewan residents simply need to plate their sleds at the local Saskatchewan Government Insurance office and the trail fee is included as part of the package.

Out of province sledders need to ensure their sleds are registered in their home jurisdiction and carry liability insurance to be legal. There currently is no trail pass fee for out of province riders, provided they meet the above criteria. Donations to the trail system are often received from out of province riders because of this.

What kind of groomer does the Hudson Bay Trail Riders snowmobile club have?

Three groomers

2014 John Deere 6125 with Gilbert rubber track system and 10’ x 18’ Gilbert drag
2011 John Deere 7330 with Soucy Track kit and 10’ x 18’ Mogul Master drag
