For the first time ever, Fort McMurray has become Alberta’s SledTown ShowDown champion.
For years, the Fort McMurray area has been one of Alberta's best kept secrets when it comes to snowmobiling. Exquisite trails run through varied and extensive trail systems. Amenities are conveniently available (book your rooms in advance), and there is a selection of fine dining options to enjoy after a day of exhilarating snowmobiling fun. No wonder it was voted Alberta’s 2021 SledTown ShowDown provincial champion!
Fort McMurray’s snowmobile trails are maintained by the McMurray Sno-Drifters Snowmobile Association. This snowmobile club is a big reason why Fort McMurray is such a popular destination for snowmobilers across Alberta. Here’s what club member Audun Klath had to say about Fort McMurray’s huge accomplishment.
What was your reaction to Fort McMurray winning the 2021 SledTown ShowDown Provincial Championship?
It was outstanding to have our McMurray SnoDrifters membership and community come out and support us like this.
Why do you think snowmobilers are so passionate about riding in Fort McMurray?
We are so impassioned here in our community. We have over 300 kilometres of groomed trails to ride and access to wherever you want to travel.
What is the best place to sled in Fort McMurray, and why?
There aren’t many places in Alberta where you can jump on your sled and ride a 225 kilometre loop from town. Plus you can grab a hot meal from a local establishment on the loop.
