What local sledders say about Whiteshell Provincial Park, MB

“I like to ride the trails in the loops that go around through Seven Sisters and the Elma Trail. It’s a big circle—about 150 kilometres.”

- Bruce Prozyk, president of the Whiteshell Snowmobile Club

“I love being able to get back into places you don’t normally get to see if you’re not on a snowmobile. You get to see scenery you otherwise wouldn’t be able to see. The terrain in the Whiteshell is so diverse. I used to run a snowmobile tour operation here and would have people come who were used to touring in the mountains and from the States. I could take them from wide open lakes to very narrow technical trails, through valleys to climbing rock ridges…it’s a very diverse landscape here in the Whiteshell with not too many places than can compare to it in Manitoba and with trails groomed to this extent.”

- Mike Adey, Whiteshell Snowmobile Club volunteer
