The village of Valemount takes the cake when it comes to sled-friendly communities. Local snowfall is abundant, the climate is ideal and the trails are vigilantly maintained by the Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association (VARDA).

Here you will find the terrain variety that every mountain rider dreams about experiencing. You can start with an easier trail, such as the  Westridge Family Loop, or you can jump right in and enjoy the elevation at Allen Creek, Keyhole or other exciting zones.

Our readers from this area are proudly enthusiastic, and over the years they have sent in a selection of photos that will make you wish you were in Valemount, on your sled, today. Here are a few of our favourite choices.
