Want to really throw down this winter? The wilds of Algoma Country will show you what ultimate snowmobiling feels like; high-five inducing adventure for the true adrenaline junkie.
Be one of the first this season to experience Ontario’s only snowmobiling playground dedicated to ‘boondocking’ – off-trail, backcountry powder riding in Wawa.
WHERE TO DO IT:
With its expansive old growth forest wilderness, rugged Canadian Shield terrain, and a long and plentiful snow season, Algoma Country is a snowmobiler’s paradise. Wawa, located just north of Lake Superior Provincial Park, is the boondocking gateway and offers sled friendly accommodations, rentals shops and experienced guides. You’ll need to get your OFSC Trail Permit, and in addition you’ll be required to obtain passes for the playground as there is a check-in program in place. The best part: this is open to both the novice and the avid. Need rentals, gear and guides? No problem. Jones Powersports will get your fully outfitted. Or just get there with your own gear and go for a rip with your buddies. Either way, it’ll blow your mind.
FURTHER INFO ON SNOWMOBILING:
From backcountry to established trails, Ontario is home to some of the world’s most epic snowmobiling. In fact, members of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club’s (OFSC) maintain over 30,000 km of marked trails, loops and passages. Get more info on where to sled and how to get started.
