Snowmobiling in the North Thompson Valley

Alpine Snowmobiling at its Best

Feel your heart pound as you fly along through timbered passages and snow-covered meadows on your snowmobile. You can feel the engine vibrate with every pull on the throttle. The wind chills your cheeks as you breathe in the crisp air. Frost tipped forests whiz by beneath icy blue skies. You crest a mountain and marvel as an alpine bowl opens up just over the ridge. It’s time to test your mettle against this pool of snow. Feel the exhilaration as you squeeze the throttle and create a picture worthy snow spray.

It’s time for you to experience the adrenaline-fuelled sledder’s rush of snowmobiling in the North Thompson Valley.

Sledding for Nature Lovers in Blue River

There’s a reason seasoned sledders flock to Blue River where you’ll find more than 60 km (37 mi) of groomed and tracked trails. There’s even more snow-covered thrills above the ridge-line. Combine that with up to 6 m (20 ft) of annual snowfall and you’ve got rides from epic to easy going.

Suit up, step outside and get on your machine. Point your skis to Groundhog Mountain where avalanche-free trails make for family-friendly rides. For more excitement on the snow, make your way over a frozen creek bed and fly straight up to the alpine. The frozen tundra is calling. Answer it!

Snowmobiling at valemount

Valemount is surrounded by mountain ranges. Ride at the doorstep to the Rocky Mountains as you look up to the craggy peaks of the Monashees and the rolling summits of the Cariboos. These three mountain ranges define the rare landscape that surround Valemount. They also give you limitless riding possibilities.

Pick Your Pleasure

Saddle up to ride rolling hills and grasslands blanketed with snow. More experienced riders love the high mountain passes. Make your way to the Crystal Ridge Sled Ski Area for a one-of-a-kind experience. It is open to the public and offers six, semi-cleared runs (2200 vertical feet each) with a designated uptrack for snowmobile travel.

Strike out on your own or play follow-the-leader with a group of friends. You’ll be rewarded with heart-stopping winter panoramas usually only seen on postcards.
