What local snowmobilers say about sledding in the Kelvington area
"You can go anywhere on our trails through so many different communities. You can literally come up and stay at Lintlaw, Greenwater (Lake) or Kelvington and ride for days with barely ever crossing the same trail. There is such a variety of trails—from wide open spaces to going up and down hills to touring through the Porcupine Forest, there is so much to see for anybody."
- Ron Hughes, member of the Kelvington Trailblazers
