Snowmobiling

There's no such thing as hibernating during the winter in the Waskesiu Wilderness Region. The trails are at full throttle from Big River all the way to Lakeland. Enjoy the scenic open terrain and forested zones as you carve the snow through Saskatchewan's lush boreal forests. Snowmobilers will find scenic rides through forests, along old logging roads, across open meadows and to ice-covered lakes. The local snowmobile clubs take good care of this network of trails, many of which double for ATV tracks in summer.
