What local sledders are saying about Dauphin, MB
Club members stop to enjoy the view at the top of Durston Hill on the Riding Mountain Trail. You can also take a day trip out to Morden to enjoy their trails. - Sylvain Paquet photo
"You'll see an abundance of wildlife here. We get lots of deer, elk, coyotes, foxes, prairie chickens; and near the park boundary sometimes you can spot a timber wolf. As you're riding this trail you get into the hills, where you're going up and down and around curves. Before you head back, you have to stop on top of Riding Mountain. Depending on visibility, you can see all the way to Dauphin and it's just gorgeous. We are thinking of putting a shelter here so people can stay and enjoy the view. What I like most about sledding is the community involvement. I love meeting people from all over. It's also a great way to not be stuck inside all winter. If you're an outdoor person, this is the best way to see areas you would never see if you didn't snowmobile."
- Sylvain Paquet, president of the Dauphin & District Snowmobile Club
