Snowmobilers know that Sicamous has some of the best alpine snowmobiling in Western Canada: It scored five Rider’s Choice Awards from SnoRiders in 2018! Deep powder, vast terrain, lake and mountain views and a focus on safety are hallmarks of the local scene, running roughly December through April. With membership (around $200) in the Eagle Valley Snowmobile Club, an Annual Trail Pass gives you no-fee access to four areas (Blue Lake, Owlhead, Queest and Eagle Pass) with well-maintained roads leading to parking areas, cozy warming cabins and 25 kilometres of groomed trails–plus a vast network of ungroomed expanse. Daily access is $25. Download a map and get conditions at sledsicamous.com.
