Plan your North East Saskatchewan snowmobile trip today

Don't wait to start planning your snowmobile trip to North East Saskatchewan—the 1,000 Miles of Snow trails are beckoning.

1. Choose your route

Consider whether you prefer a continuous journey from one point or packing an overnight bag and making stops in various towns each night.

Tisdale and Porcupine Plain serve as excellent central hubs, while St. Brieux provides an ideal starting point for heading west and completing the loop. Weekend getaways suit those with regular nine-to-five schedules, offering convenience to explore a variety of regions. However, tackling the entire 1,000 Miles of Snow is an extraordinary endeavor for those seeking an extended adventure, requiring a well-planned 7 to 10 days to complete the full loop. Remember to carry a route map and share trip details with family or friends to ensure others are aware of your daily whereabouts.

2. Pack a lunch for the warm-up shelter

The trail system boasts over 40 distinctive warm-up shelters, each crafted by local snowmobile clubs. These shelters feature indoor stoves, outdoor fire pits, gear racks for drying, stocked chopped wood, an axe, and even an outhouse complete with provided toilet paper. Pack some snacks, and envision a trailside lunch or supper with a hot dog roast over an open fire.

3. Be prepared by bringing extra supplies

Given Saskatchewan's expansive size, fuel consumption can escalate quickly, especially during snow-filled excursions. Ensure you have a jerry can of gas and carry additional sled parts and tools to address potential breakdowns. Since cell service is not guaranteed in all regions, be well-prepared in case your time on the trail extends beyond initial expectations.

4. Have fun on Saskatchewan's famous sledding trails

Above all else, have a good time. The trails are an incredibly unique feature to have in this province, kept lovingly maintained by their affiliated clubs for the enjoyment of visitors and locals alike.
