Idabel Lake

Idabel Lake offers diverse riding trails and the location is easily accessible.

The easiest way to access the Idabel Lake snowmobile terrain is to drive down Highway 97, turn at the junction with Highway 33 and head towards Big White Resort. Roughly six kilometres past Big White, turn right onto McCulloch Road and follow the fork in the road—stay left on the 201 Forest Service Road until you reach the Idabel Lake community. Turn right on Idabel Lake Road and drive to the parking lot.
