Snowmobiling


Saskatchewan offers some of the best snowmobiling in North America. And the Yorkton area ranks at the top within Saskatchewan for facilities and snowmobile conditions.


Saskatchewan has millions of acres of open land for snowmobiling, and an estimated 10,000 km of developed trails including hundreds of kilometres in provincial parks. The Yorkton area is the perfect destination for snowmobile enthusiasts. It has an excellent trail system of more than 250 km which is maintained with a Marcel groomer.


Expanded routes include links to Sheho, Foam Lake, Rhein and Canora. The Route 66 trail runs through a unique blend of rural and wilderness areas on its way to Good Spirit Provincial Park. Throughout the trail system there are warm-up shelters and accommodations to add to the enjoyment.


Legal snowmobile access into the city of Yorkton on designated routes was granted in 1996 and was great news for local and visiting enthusiasts who now have easy access to food and fuel services within the city.

Skiing


Cross country (nordic) skiing is a very popular sport in Saskatchewan, where hundreds of kilometres of groomed and marked trails can be explored and enjoyed in parks and forests. Cross country skiing is readily available just a short drive from Yorkton, as well as within the city.


An extensive network of trails carve through the forests in the southern half of Duck Mountain Provincial Park an hour's drive northeast of Yorkton. To the northwest lies Good Spirit Lake Provincial Park which also provides scenic cross country trails and accommodations. Log cabins with fireplaces at the park are very popular with skiing enthusiasts. For more information call 1-888-797-6111.


Much to the surprise of those who think Saskatchewan is one flat stretch of land, the province's valleys, steep rolling hills, and highlands are ideal spots for our own brand of downhill skiing. Just an hour from Yorkton are ski hills at Fort Qu'Appelle. The facilities offer several slopes to choose from including longer runs, novice slopes, and hills for snowboarders.
