Perennially active in the Nipawin area since 1979, the Twin Lakes Trail Blazers represents a strong group of hard-working local snowmobilers. In the winter, club members stay busy grooming trails, maintaining warm-up shelters and organizing events for the club and the community to enjoy. Throughout the year, they also restock firewood for the shelters, brush and clear the trails, install and remove trail markers and signs and work closely with private landowners to ensure access to the trails.
Must-try Nipawin snowmobile trail
There are about 285 kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails in the Nipawin area, but the most popular route is the Northern Loop, via Trail No. 226F and TC226A. This loop features a great mix of open fields and tree-lined trails with three warm-up shelters along the way. A highlight of the ride is the snowmobile crossing over the top of the Francois-Finlay hydro dam.
