Burns Lake, Snowmobiling

Everyone knows that in the north there is a large amount of snow that hangs around for about 6 months every year. Most people would think we are crazy to live here, but in Burns Lake we take advantage of the great fun the snow brings! Whether you’re a snowmobiler, snowboarder, skier or just simply a snowman maker this place is wonderful for all snow activities. A great place to snowmobile is the Paul Fire area, or better known as “The Burn”, there is a trail all the way up to the open mountain and you can take any type of snowmobile up there. When I went up we brought a small snowmobile with a big sled hooked up behind full of snowboards and sliders. It is a great view at the top and full of hills to fool around on with either sliders or snowmobiles. If you are a snowboarder it is about a 2 hour drive to the top of Ski Smithers; which is a beautiful mountain. I have been to many ski mountains throughout BC with the LDSS snowboarding team and yet Ski Smithers is still my favorite! The people around this area are incredibly friendly which enhances your experience. The snow in Burns Lake comes with many advantages and makles this place so wonderful!
