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.
Terrace is the epitome of winter splendour, boasting excellent snow conditions and sledding terrain to die for. We have put together a few resources so you can start planning your northern B.C. sledding trip right now.
Main riding areas Terrace, B.C.
Big Cedar Snowmobiling Trails
This sledding area is sure to be a big hit. To get there, travel 58 kilometres along the Nisga'a Highway north of Terrace, and turn right just before the Cedar River bridge. This takes you onto the Big Cedar Forest Service Road. Take that road for another 22 kilometres and then turn left onto Branch F33000 and follow it down to the bridge. The deactivated road will take you to the trailhead (winter road conditions permitting, so be sure to check before you go).
This area consists of a five-kilometre sledding trail that meanders through alpine trees and offers splendid views.
Sterling Mountain Snowmobiling Trails
This sledding zone is located 67 kilometres north of Terrace. Follow the Nisga'a Highway to the Meadow Creek Forestry Road, turn onto the road and follow it for 8 kilometres. At the end of your drive you will be treated to 16.5 kilometres of sledding territory in the Sterling Mountain range. Enjoy the scenic alpine views and trails maintained vigilantly by the Skeena Valley Snowmobile Association. The club also maintains cabins at Sterling Lake and Jack's Lake.
