Northern Alberta is a snowmobiler’s paradise with hundreds of kilometers of trails, cut lines and navigable waterways to explore. Enjoy the groomed and signed trail systems in place courtesy of the McMurray Sno Drifters club, a group of local enthusiasts who have successfully partnered with the Municipality, Sustainable Resources and industry to designate, develop and maintain snowmobile trails throughout the region. Staging areas are available in Waterways, Abasand Heights and north of Fort McMurray to allow users to park their vehicles and off load their units. Be sure to purchase a trail pass from any member of the local club and be aware of the bylaws and rules governing snowmobiling use within the region.
