Snowmobiling (Don Weixl photo)
Wide-open, snow-covered wilderness and frozen lakes invite winter visitors to venture out and explore the 100 Mile House by snowmobile.
Snowmobiling is a popular sport in the South Cariboo, and the area offers a vast network of trails that stretch between the Marble Range mountains and Green Lake to the south of 100 Mile House, and Begbie Summit Trail to Mahood Lake to the north of town.
The 100 Mile Snowmobile Club maintains a groomed touring trail network stretching from 70 Mile House north to Spout Lake. Another network from 70 Mile House, south of Green Lake, connects with trails in Kamloops.
In fact, the 100 Mile House snowmobile corridor joins into the Trans Canada Snowmobile Trail, a project that will eventually stretch 10,000km/6,213mi and will link all provinces and territories.
