Snowmobilers are required to purchase a Snopass from Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) in order to ride designated snowmobile trails in Manitoba. An annual pass costs $150 and a seven-day pass is $75.50.
Out-of-province snowmobilers can purchase either the seven-day pass or the annual pass. They must also carry proof of ownership for their sled, and have valid registration that includes a minimum of $200,000 liability insurance.
One of the benefits of a Manitoba Snopass is that it allows the sledder to ride on designated snowmobile trails in Saskatchewan, as well.
Snopasses can be purchased at any MPI agent. To purchase them in advance, out-of-province snowmobilers can mail his/her information to an MPI broker in Manitoba.
For more information about Snopasses, visit the MPI website.
Maps of the snowmobile trails in and around The Pas can be found on the Kelsey Trail Sno-Riders website. A more general map of the trails can also be found on SnoRiders.
