Dashing Through the Snow
Good to know before you go
- Check avalanche reports before you head up any mountain.
- Marshall Lake Nordic Trails and the warming Dacha are both dog-friendly
- Fresh-water fishing is regulated in BC and fishing licenses are required (even in winter)
- Many of the most beautiful trails run through sensitive eco systems. Please stay on marked trails to avoid damaging the environment and pack out what you pack in
- This area is prone to rapid changes in the weather, pack and dress accordingly
- Learn the ice thickness in areas you plan to visit. Anything less than 2” is unsafe, while you need 4” for ice fishing and 5” for snowmobiles
You may think of horse-drawn sleighs where you hear the words dashing through the snow. Here in Boundary Country, dashing through the snow means riding high in the saddle on a snowmobile!
Boundary Country’s varied landscape means you choose your adventure. Tackle the mountains on your sled as you climb higher and higher. Zig and zag your way through our many forests or zip across the wide-open range. Maybe you like your rides steep and deep; perhaps you prefer slow and steady. Either way, there’s a trail waiting for you.
Feel the crisp mountain air on your face as your snowmobile vibrates beneath you. Bundle up and climb to the Paulson Summit near Christina Lake. You can stop to warm up in the alpine hut. Take a deep breath of fresh air and be amazed at the mountain peaks laid out before you.
Wind your way through snow-laden trees and explore Jewel Lake’s forested trails. Fill up on fresh powder at Christina Lake, where forest service roads become snowmobile superhighways. Then it’s straight up to snow-filled bowls.
Bring your own sled and rent a cabin at Westbridge’s Old Cowboy Ranch. You can spend untold hours riding Crown lands through the narrow valley. Family-friendly fun is what snowmobiling in Boundary Country is all about.
