Maybe it’s the expanses of untouched powder or the passion of the local sledders. Perhaps it’s the alpine bowls or the breathtaking scenery. Whatever the reason, Mackenzie is a community that reminds snowmobilers why they’re enthu- siastic about the sport—and that makes the uninitiated want to hop aboard a sled.
Powder King reigns
Powder King Mountain is one of Mackenzie’s most well-known sledding spots. This is an ideal place for sledders who want to experience untouched powder and will offer expert riders lots of intense terrain. On chilly days, warm up in the cabin maintained by the Rocky Mountain Riders (RMR), Mackenzie’s snowmobile club.
More on Morfee Mountain
This mountain is covered with deep powder and alpine bowls. Sledders will appreciate its accessibility, thanks to the groomed road and trails. The RMR maintain two cabins on the mountain.
Tons of terrific trails
There are lots of other places to explore around Mackenzie. Popular ones include the Old Friend Trail and the Gagnon Trail. The former is known for its undulating hills and powder, while the latter traverses through forested areas and would be suitable for beginning riders.
