The flat prairie lands and sweeping valleys of Fort St. John that make for great hiking in spring and summer and cross-country skiing in winter, are also optimally suited for exciting snowmobiling adventures.

Fort St. John is marked by a network of snowmobiling trails that range in terms difficulty and time duration. Sledders can choose easy-ride routes close to town or a multi-day treks into the Rocky Mountains, west of Fort St. John.

Snowmobiling at Charlie Lake

Charlie Lake, just minutes from Fort St. John, is a popular snowmobiling destination for local sledders, especially after a fresh snowfall. Explore nearby trails, cruise on the frozen lake (when ice density and thickness safely allows), and take a break for a hot drink at the A-Frame club chalet, Montney Park. Good places to launch for the day are Rotary RV Park at the south end of Charlie Park, or Montney Park at the northeast end.
