The laws governing snowmobile use differ by province and can be confusing. Here, we make it easier to understand what local and out of province snowmobilers will need in terms of insurance, registration and licensing to ride B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
The trails and riding areas offer every option imaginable and the Kamloops Snowmobile Association ensures the sledding is always top-notch. Riders can take advantage of the nearby trail systems maintained by the Clearwater Sno-Drifters and the Crowfoot Mountain Snowmobile Club.
