Snowmobiling is an exciting and invigorating way to enjoy Saskatchewan's
natural wonders in wintertime.
There are hundreds of kilometres
of groomed trails passing through fields, forests and valleys and
over frozen lakes. And with many resort operators now offering snowmobiling
packages, the opportunities have never been greater.
For $350 per person ($240 U.S.), a party of four can rent a modern,
two-bedroom cottage at Turtle Lake Lodge for three days and three
Included in the deal is use of a heated ice-fishing hut
and nearby access to 240 kms of groomed and signed snowmobile trails.
Guests bring their own snowmobiles.
Resort co-owner Leslie Clark says she tailors her winter packages
to suit families.
"It's the one thing you can do as a family during a long winter,
other than sit on a beach in Mexico,'' says Clark. "I've done both,
and I'd much rather come to the lake. It's just so peaceful.''
Other packages include the provision of snowmobiles and gear. For
as low as $335 (Cdn) per person, a party of four can rent a modern,
two-bedroom cabin in northern Saskatchewan for three nights. Included
in this package from SnoCruise, out of Saskatoon, are two snowmobiles
plus gear and three meals per day. The snowmobiles are picked up
in Saskatoon and hauled by trailer to the destination.
Packages can be tailored to suit the needs of the party and guides
are usually available for an additional fee. Here are some of the
